Hair: Chrystofer Benson, Salon Tantrum, Layton, Utah
Makeup: Merrill Hollis
The newest collection from Chrystofer Benson, Logics artistic director, educational director at Salon Tantrum in Layton, Utah, and 2009 Haircolor finalist for NAHA 20, embodies the stark, simple and colourful beauty of the butterfly.
For Benson the inspiration began when he saw a picture of a butterfly next to a set of eyes with makeup resembling the creature. Taking this concept and applying it to hair, the colour techniques used mimic three different butterfly patterns and tones. Working with the careful placement of a spectrum of dramatic colours—cherry reds, white blondes, primary blues and greens and dark auburn hues—Benson says this collection was about “marrying the shape, tone and design of each butterfly into the haircut and colour.”
Vivid and bold, just like butterflies’ wings, this collection evokes a definite sense of playfulness and adventure.
