Make Love Not War in Color
Think Palm Springs, free spirits, colorful cocktails by the pool, and luxe hippies in flowery caftans. That's the vision Adam Isles of Rokk Ebony's Collins Place salon in Melbourne, Australia wanted to convey for his hair color collection called Coachella.
According Isles, the inspiration of this collection was the 'Make Love, Not War' anti-Vietnam war mood of the late '60s and early '70s that dominated the fashion. He studied the hair color of icons of the era, particularly Twiggy, Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot, to come up with today's spin on their hair color.
The colors of the flower power imagery and fabric prints of the day also played a big part in forming the colors for this collection.
"All the looks presented in the Coachella collection, in true Rokk Ebony style, are created for clients, as there is no over-emphasis or exaggeration," Adam claimed, continuing, "It is practical, appealing and ready for clients."
His hairstyling partner in this collection was rokk ebony Style Director, Daniella Barca who cut and finished the looks to present Adam's commercial color at its best.
