56 The Colorist | DECEMBER 2018 | PHOTOGRAPHY: COURTESY OF ARTISTS; GINA ATKINSON HEADSHOT: RYAN FENG sierra mead f + Salon: Parlour E.lev.en; Huntington Beach, California + Beauty school: Golden West College; Huntington Beach, California + Color line: Pulp Riot Haircolor specialties: Vivids and transformations. I love turning caterpillars into beautiful butterƒ ies. I became a colorist because: I used to be into cosplay, painting, FX makeup, and prop building—creativity and working with my hands has been with me my whole life. My goals: To build the con‹ dence to become an educator. I love learning new concepts and passing them on to others. My best color tip: Use certain colors to cancel out others; you don't always have to dive right in with the lightener. My favorite color trend/technique right now: Shadow roots; I love the dimension they give to any canvas. They're great for low-maintenance clients, too! I'm inspired by: Character designs in video games (especially World of Warcraft and League of Legends)—I try to incorporate similar color palettes into all of my vivid creations. @hairforbreakfast bianca siani h + Salon: Hair Dimension Salon; Bronxville, New York + Beauty school: Aveda Institute New York; New York, New York + Color line: Color Design Haircolor specialties: Balayage, "teasy" foils, ombré, and color melts. My goals: In the salon, my main goal is to always keep everyone's hair in healthy condition; it's important to build trust with my customers so that we have a relationship that will last for years to come. My proudest accomplishment: For two years in a row I've had the opportunity to work backstage at Macy's "Fashion's Front Row" show, which is televised on the E! channel. I love being a colorist because: Being a colorist is being an artist—that's my favorite part of the job, the creativity that goes into it. My favorite color trend/technique right now: The "Khloé Kardashian" golden honey blonde. To achieve it I create babylights mixed with some balayage. @bscissorhands They're young. They're bright.
