USA Hairshow

by | Jul 14, 2018

This is the transcript from my video presentation of me that was used for the USA Hair Show Bayou Street Blonde. The transcript is from my introduction to the audience as being an Ambassador for Whittemore House NYC Hair Paint.

Hello, my name is Kristina Russell, and I am a hair colour artist from Sydney, Australia. I am renowned for creating dimension and texture with shade and light through every head of hair that I work on. I like to approach hair as if it’s a canvass, and I’m the artist, allowed to create the masterpiece for that client. I love to teach. I work regularly on hair shows, doing small intimate workshops in salons, and I’m really lucky to work behind the salon chair in one of Sydney’s leading salons, as well as traveling the globe teaching classes of my own design.

I’m thrilled to be sharing the Whittemore House Hair Paint powder with my students. We’ve had a little taste, we’ve had a little teaser in some of my programs, and people are loving it. Hairdressers are raving about it. The lifting ability. The fact that the hair is kept up really strong, the integrity is there, after achieving several layers of lift.

I specialise in redheads, corrective colour, and major transformations as well as fussy blondes. So I take care of all of those clients in the salon, and this has been my hair paint of choice. I can apply it to get pastels, to do major transformations, and the hair is kept feeling amazingly strong, and with these intricate shades and light throughout, depending on my brushstroke and tool of choice for applying it.

I’m so thrilled to be part of the Whittemore House Ambassador team, and I’m really excited to come over to the US again, and to meet some more colourists as well as to stay in touch across social media.

Let’s stay in touch and inspire each other with this amazing paint. I love sharing formulas and hope to see how you’re using it as well.

x Kristina
