Redken NBT part II

The next day continued with an intimate sit down with social media influencer and fashion hair color specialist, Rebecca Taylor. We met at here studio with a live model she would later demo her signature color application there. She was so honest and candid about her humble beginnings in Florida and later moving to Los Angeles.

I had not painted in a while this really brought back memories. It was really tranquil to be able to sit and just paint. I am so grateful to Redken and Jennifer for this amazing experience.

 so many gorgeous variations
