Whimsy comes in unexpected contrasts, extreme proportions and dramatic silhouettes. There’s a costume-like feel here, but it looks always forward, never back, with a fresh, modern ethos; vintage shapes accentuated by short, sharp, edgy cuts in cool shades of blonde.
"Magical Whimsy is a contemporary twist on that soft-focus Victoriana that always comes to fashion in moments of challenge and change."
International Creative Director for Schwarzkopf Professional
Embellishment and all things theatrical; with structured silhouettes from corsets, and interiors of sumptuous minimalism, the business of dressing-up has been brought into the moment.
For our Magical Whimsy Catwalk Look, IGORA ROYAL Colourist, Viola Landsky uses a Triangular Placement technique, overlaying powdery tones onto a blonde base. The shades of silver, lilac and pale blonde diffuse into one another, giving a sense of depth and opalescent shimmer.
Starting with a base of ash and matt tones enlivened with muted peach and pastel purple, Global Colour Ambassador Lesley Jennison adds a contrasting silver face-frame using the Face-Framing technique, creating a look that's soft yet statement on our Magical Whimsy Salon Look.
