Behind the Scenes at American Salon's August Cover Shoot With L'Oréal Professionnel

Luminous haircolor and elegant styling merged in American Salon's August cover feature, "Night Moves," shot by esteemed photographer Laurent Darmon.

Here's a look at some of the behind-the-scenes action at the shoot.
