AUGUST 2019 89 The American Board of Certifi ed Haircolorists (ABCH) hosted its annual Energizing Summit June 9 to 10 at the Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles, attracting the country's leading colorists eager for education and inspiration. This year saw top-notch classes led by the likes of Cassandra McLaughlin, Joe Santy, Shannon King, and Nina Kovner, the latter who also moderated a lunch interview with Riawna Capri and Nikki Lee of Nine Zero One salon . We caught up with Beauty Launchpad education team member Missy Peterson of Malibu C and asked her a few questions about why this is one of her can't-miss events of the year. Beauty Launchpad: Why is it so important to be at this event? Missy Peterson: At the Energizing Summit, you're talking to top colorists about the science of color and hair, rather than marketing a product. All of the education at the Summit is brand neutral, which really puts the focus on education. I've been ABCH-certifi ed for years, so for me to be asked to teach there is like going to the Super Bowl! There really is nothing else like it. BLP: Tell us about the class you taught, "Ravishing Reds: Friend or Foe." MP: I talked about the science behind redheads. Many people love creating redheads, but they can be very challenging because of where the color deposits in the shaft and so on. I debunked myths and discussed how important it is to prep your canvas properly. You wouldn't repaint your kitchen without washing off any grease from the walls fi rst, so the same goes for your hair painting. We discussed why it's diffi cult to keep your reds vibrant, why it's hard to lift redheads and why they tend to brown out. Reds don't brown out just because of the color line—it's because of the minerals in the hair. —AMY DODDS PARTNERING FOR HAIR RESTORATION Bosley Professional Strength, the largest nonsurgical hair restoration practice in the U.S., has teamed up with Hair Club, a leading provider of surgical hair solutions, to form BioGraft. BioGraft combines Follicular Unit Extraction, a less invasive surgical technique, in which the hairline is recreated using hair from the back or sides of the head, with Xstrands+, a nonsurgical approach to fi lling in thinner areas of the hair. After undergoing BioGraft, clients can expect more volume in the hair and a natural-looking, blended hairline. e strategic partnership between these like-minded companies was arranged by the Japanese-based Aderans Co. Ltd., a global conglomerate focused on total hair loss solutions, including counseling, custom wigs and scalp care. MISSY PETERSON Education for the Colorist COURTESY OF MALIBU C
