Dylan Brittain Experiments With Color for Kroma Collection

Dylan Brittain created a short bob shape that was cut above the ear to showcase the model’s facial features before creating the fringe. Haircolor was then panelled through the hair to accentuate the entire cut. (John Rawson @ www.therawsonpartnership.net)

The dexterous hands of Dylan Brittain, owner of Rainbow Room International’s George Square Salon in Glasgow, Scotland, and a Schwarzkopf UK ambassador, worked his magic to create Kroma, a collection that focuses on the purity and power of color to draw parallels between the individual and individuality. To get the hair just right for the shoot, Brittain used a variety of color techniques and processes. “For the bolder looks, I prelightened the hair prior to applying the bright haircolor,” says Brittain, adding that color-blocking and color paneling techniques were likewise key. “Kroma’s blunt hair shapes and pops of color are what’s on-trend for 2019.”

Before the hair was lightened and colored with a sunshine-like yellow hue, Brittain cut it into a super-short pixie shape with short fringe, then styled the design with texturizing spray to achieve a messy, edgy vibe. 

To achieve this look, Brittain used a color-blocking technique in the fringe area, contrasting the bright green hues against a dark brunette base.

To achieve a very choppy finish resembling a shag cut, Brittain styled the hair with Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ texturizing products to achieve an effortless, undone finish.

For this look, Brittain cut the hair into a short, blunt bob before using color-blocking techniques to play up contrast between the dark green hues and light blonde base. He then styled the design super straight for a sleek, shiny and smooth finish.

After cutting the hair into a pixie crop, leaving lots of length on top, Brittain lightened and colored strands to achieve a neon-like fiery orange hue. A bit of wax finished the look, supplying height and texture.
