#ColourFest: Schwarzkopf Pro x PANTONE
Schwarzkopf Professional have joined forces with the PANTONE Color Institute – the global colour expert and trend forecaster – to present a unique set of 18 new IGORA ROYAL Mixes inspired by trending colour worlds identified by PANTONE. Two love brands in colour make the perfect partners for a powerful statement!
For hairdressers, intermixing is essential to improve client loyalty, with customised and personalised colour services that cannot be reproduced easily. Colour is a way to experiment with creativity while letting salon clients express themselves – IGORA ROYAL empowers hairdressers to be the colourist they want to be, now through a new powerful collaboration celebrating true trend colour expertise and the endless opportunities of mixing.
‘Colour is essential to our very existence. From the foods we eat, to the beauty of flora and fauna, colour defines our world. The first thing you remember and the last thing you forget, colour is an identifier’ – Vice President PANTONE Color Institute, Laurie Pressman
To educate colourists on how to perfectly mix and leverage the newly sharpened and streamlined IGORA ROYAL portfolio, Schwarzkopf Professional has teamed-up with the PANTONE Color Institute in a collaboration that celebrates colour and a commitment to colour perfection – connecting new IGORA ROYAL Mixes to trending colour worlds and on-trend looks.
To begin the process, PANTONE identified core colour trends that reflect the current zeitgeist, leading to the creation of 3 distinct trend colour worlds: Novel Comfort, Quintessential and
E-phoria. Schwarzkopf Professional’s Global Colour Ambassadors Lesley Jennison and Arjan Bevers, as well as the creative collective X-presion and Colour Educator Josie Vilay, then translated these colour trends forecasted by the PANTONE Color Institute into a set of 18 IGORA ROYAL Mixes, with each final Mix being matched to an official PANTONE colour from their Fashion, Home & Interior Color Systems.
This new Mixes Collection celebrates the unlimited opportunities of the new IGORA ROYAL portfolio, with each trend colour created through the mixing of two to three core IGORA ROYAL shades.
The new IGORA ROYAL Mixes have been brought to life in six powerful looks featured in Schwarzkopf Professional’s Essential Looks 2:2021 INSCAPE Collection to represent a key fashion, cut and colour direction.
Inspired By PANTONE
Introducing the IGORA ROYAL Mixes Collection inspired by PANTONE Colour World One – Novel Comfort A palette of organic, earthbound vegetal colours inspired by nature expresses our desire for warming comfort and simple pleasures. Encouraging us to take a step back, to enjoy a slower and more organic way of life, these timeless colours highlight our desire to assess our priorities and values as we seek a healthier lifestyle. “I wanted my colours to melt and meld into each other, resulting in calming and lived- in muted colours giving a sense of calmness, fragility and safety…a sense of being connected to the planet.” – Global Ambassador, Lesley Jennison
