October Cover Story: Power of Paint

cool-girl styles in bold shades

In our book, Lucie Doughty is the real deal—one of the most gifted colorists we’ve ever known. So when the Global Editorial Director for John Paul Mitchell Systems was named NAHA 2016 Editorial Stylist of the Year in Las Vegas this July, we were elated since we knew her work would be appearing on our cover this month.

To promote Paul Mitchell POP XG, a new semi-permanent line of cream hair color shades created for color professionals, Lucie created a new collection of cool-girl styles in bold shades of high-pigmented indigo, bright green and neon-red. POP XG is a direct dye system that includes 13 electric, intermixable shades of vibrant color—no developer required. The long-lasting pop color lasts for up to six weeks, depending on porosity, of course. Better yet, the rich conditioning base leaves hair soft and nourished. Simply paint the shade you want onto the hair for precise application and super-shiny, re ective results.
