allie whyle g + Salon: Fringe Salon and Color Bar; Houston + Beauty school: San Jacinto Community College; Pasadena, Texas + Color line: Eufora International Haircolor specialties: Textured hair coloring and reds. I became a colorist because: I wasn't talented in terms of painting or drawing, but I really loved what happened when the right tones and techniques came together on a head of hair. My goals: I hope to one day educate stylists on their business behind the chair. This industry is full of powerful people who can have any life they dream of. My proudest accomplishment: Becoming an educator—I'm one at our salon as well as a color educator in training for Eufora International. My favorite color trend/technique right now: Blended, golden blondes. I'm inspired by: Every guest inspires my work. @allieatfringe cassie siskovic h + Company: Kenra Professional; Los Angeles + Beauty school: Cuyahoga Valley Career Center; Brecksville, Ohio + Color line: Kenra Color Haircolor specialties: Rose golds and truly customized color to complement skin tone and eyes. I became a colorist because: My mom has been a salon owner and stylist my entire life. Her passion for the industry and her brilliance in formulation has made her so successful. My proudest accomplishments: This year I helped develop the 2019 artistic collection for Kenra Professional, which will be taught across the country through next year at salons and shows. I also participated in and was artistic lead at eight shows this year. I love being a colorist because: We have to balance science and art. I'm so passionate about understanding and explaining the "why" behind haircolor and marrying that with the artistry of technique. It's a perfect balance of both sides of the brain. My best color tip: Pre-toning has changed my life! After prelightening the hair, I'll pre-tone with Kenra Color SV or VP Rapid Toner to neutralize underlying pigment from my canvas before I deposit my desired color/tone. @cassiskovic genna pumo d + Company: Paul Mitchell; Sarasota, Florida + Beauty school: Paul Mitchell The School; Orlando, Florida + Color line: Paul Mitchell Haircolor specialties: Color corrections. I love the grand reveal. I became a colorist because: I like a challenge. I believe there's something new to be learned in every color experience. My proudest accomplishments: Working with MTV on a photo shoot, being a Beacon winner, completing Paul Mitchell's Dean's List program, and working on stage with my mentors at hair shows. I love being a colorist because: I just love the creative process and the "why" behind formulations. Coloring hair is therapeutic and relaxing. I look up to: Linda Yodice—she speaks with such purpose and passion. Watching her color hair makes it look so elegant and so graceful. My favorite color trend/technique right now: Dip-dyed ends and shine lines. I'm inspired by: Traveling and nature—seeing new places and the feelings they give you. I love to recreate those feelings through haircolor. @gennapumo
