CUTLER NYC COLORIST DAVID STANKO INTRODUCES THE NEW VINTAGE COLOR TREND FOR FALL
David Stanko is my hair color guru. Hardly a week goes by that someone doesn’t say: “who does your color?” Thanks to Redken color gels and other Redken products, I’ve been looking pretty good lately! But David is also an innovator and color consultant for Redken. Here is his take on Fall color (and I hope you enjoy this)!
Fall’s best haircolor find is the New Vintage advantage. The idea: Much in the same way that a vintage Chanel bag looks better than one you just bought, haircolor seems its sexiest lived-in, as though you had it all along. Explains Stanko, who is also a haircolor consultant to Redken, “New vintage color is close to a singular shade, but it organically morphs into subtly different tones and expresses itself through a soft interplay of dimension. It can still be rich and shiny, but it’s never so showy that it screams you just came from the salon. It’s color in its prime.”
More a state of mind than a specific shade, New Vintage color nevertheless expresses itself in particular ways for different haircolors. By taking brunettes away from the expected blonde highlights and moving blondes into the “born with it” realm, it creates haircolor with history, which any woman can appreciate.
Says Stanko, “Many brunettes can benefit from strategically placed low-lights or mid-lights, which can look more natural than blonde highlights. For blondes, deeper roots and lighter ends mimic how nature treats blonde, but the effect is not as obvious as Ombre or as structured as traditional highlights. The advantage is a look that’s worn, not weathered, which grows out with greater ease.”
Among his accolades, in one year, Stanko has sold over 60,000 DVDs: “Lifestyle Coloring” and “Midtown Single”; and now adds author to his repetoire as the Formula Boss ™ Volume 1 and 2 launch this year – both focus on customizing haircolor using his “Pasta Method” and 200 formulas for today’s client.
