Behind the Cover: Back to the Garden

For our cover story, Simply Organic Education and Technical Director Rebecca Gregory and Creative Director Jennifer Andrews relied on styling products from Organic Way (OWAY), a line of biodynamic organic products from Bologna, Italy. Simply Organic is the exclusive distributor of the luxury line, which also includes an ammonia-free permanent hair color treatment called Hcolor based on biodynamic hibiscus, organic perilla, ethnical date and illipe butter. With its advanced formula and extremely rich pigments, Hcolor offers rich, intense results and multi-faceted reflections plus perfect coverage of gray hair. To style our cover girl, Gregory set the hair on the smallest iron in the CoCr8 set of irons with interchangeable heads—think of a pin curl Afro. Sculpting Mist allowed her to create a hard-hold set, while keeping the volume inside and around the root. Hair was heavily backcombed with a few bits and pieces allowed to escape around the face. The finishing touch: a little Glamshine Cloud Spray on the ends.
