Take it to the Limit: Absinthe Collection

Neil Barton mixes kaleidoscopic color with sharp shapes in this exclusive collection.

A series of bold hair colors and styles from Neil Barton, titled Absinthe, is all about pushing the boundaries of traditional color and cutting techniques to create interesting reflections in the hair. “I wanted to be playful with color and textures in this collection, using bold, sharp shapes to create illusions within the hair,” says Barton, who owns Neil Barton Hairdressing in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. The renowned hairdresser and three-time finalist of Scottish Hairdresser of the Year called on Goldwell products and rich purple and pink hues to add even more edginess. —Corie Hengst
