BY AMY DODDS hen Ammon Carver, Creative Director for L'ANZA Healing Haircare, opened his eponymous, state-of-the-art Studio in New York's trendy Chelsea area nearly two years ago, one of his goals was to celebrate beauty, both in front of and behind the camera. "I wanted to create a space that marries beauty and photography," says Carver, who created a fully functioning photo studio and event space steps away from the salon fl oor. The hybrid studio offers workshops for stylists, both budding and seasoned, and recently his passion was tapped to produce Lunar Glow, exclusive to Launchpad. Carver and fellow L'ANZA teammates, Global Creative Director Matt Swinney and Global Healing Color Director Leah Freeman, worked side by side with fi ve up-and-coming stylists: Gina Watkins, Mark Dolan, Michael Dahl, Bryan Campbell and Vernon Fuentes. The mentors helped each of the stylists decide upon each model's look and how to make each one individual, yet cohesive to the entire collection. The mentees were in good hands: Between them the mentors have multiple award nominations and wins—including NAHAs—to their credit. You can read exactly how they achieved each look on the subsequent pages. Want to get in on the action and test your styling chops? Visit WO K
