Inspired by the palette of raw Scandinavian nature, the contrast between dull daylight and colorful feathers created an interesting encounter of melancholy and hope. For this series, Mirjam Eliasson and Sessili Jering of Salon Guld of Gothenburg, Sweden used a variety of techniques to create these delicately unique looks. In some cases, freehand application was used and in others, stencils provided the right tools for the distinctive color placement. The duo also used flamboyage, plastic papers instead of foils to be able to see-through to the hair beneath when applying the color. The results are both subtle and breath-taking.
