In music, a remix is a new version of a musical piece which was created by changing how the elements of a recording are combined together. It could be a change in instruments, beats, vocals, but the result is the same – a remix is gives a fresh sound to an old track. Affinage is taking the term to a whole new level by setting the theme “Remix Culture: No Boundaries in Creativity” as the theme to the David’s Salon Hairlympics 2020 Ladies’ Cut and Color category. It is all about changing how one views hairstyling, and putting them together to create something new. “Affinage Infiniti Remix Culture should bring together old, current, and future color trends in one head application. A colour remix is a new version of creative hair coloring, a collaboration which is created by putting together individual styles, methods, and techniques in a different way,” says Affinage Technical Director Nikk De Dios Manalo.
There are a few guidelines for stylists to create the perfect entry to this category. Hair must be stylish, fashionable. Only Affinage products must be used for coloring and lightening, and the cut and color must be a mix of new styles and techniques. The hair should have movement, not stiff, and may be permed. To complete the look, makeup and clothes must be complement the hairstyle.
