Funky colours, texturized upstyling and intricate braids led the way for an innovative and inspiring stage presentation for the Davines VIP Show in Toronto. Hosted by Metro Beauty Supply, the four-day event kicked off with a roster of top international Davines artists including Joseph DiMaggio, Naomi Knights, Anna Pacitto and Daniel Benoit. With DiMaggio’s New York Fashion Week experience, he showcased modern interpretations of classic upstyles like the Fresh roll and contemporary braiding techniques like the zipper braid. The director of colour education for Davines, Knights distilled the colour formulations necessary to create hues like the now-trending rose gold.
For the second segment Anna Pacitto and Daniel Benoit offered their advice on finding new techniques that will create uniquely textures and style. Pacitto’s instinctive ability to manipulate the hair in new ways allow her to create distinct styles with both long and mid-length looks, while Benoit shared his precision cutting, while breaking down the duo’s colour techniques. Over the following days, attendees took part in education sessions from all four artists. And attendees can also look forward to in January when the brand heads to LA for the Davines World Wide Hair Tour 2016!
