Color Cues

The United Kingdom’s Mark Leeson explores a full spectrum of vibrant hues in his Infinity collection.

The Infinity collection from British Hairdressing Awards winner Mark Leeson features a rainbow of beautiful haircolor hues, from platinum blonde to deep cherry, on graphic, short crops. “The emphasis for this collection is the indulgent use of the color palette, revealing beautiful condition and shine with strategically placed color to enhance the haircuts,” says Leeson, a member of the Five Point Alliance education team, who used Goldwell color to achieve the looks. “The color is seamless and infinite and encapsulates fused dimension within strong but gorgeous shapes.” —Lotus Abrams
