Heather Rae C. from Hairroin Salon in Hollywood, CA talks about her inspiration for the winning Sebastian Professional What's Next look (Professional Category)!
Sebastian Professional's What's Next competition gives emerging talent and established hairstylists the opportunity to shine by creating "what's next" in the world of hair.

Let’s not sugarcoat it—Fashion Week is one of the most hectic, frenzied and chaotic weeks for designers, stylists, models, photographers and editors. But, it’s also one of the most exhilarating.

Christian Siriano Inspiration:
Christian Siriano’s spring 2014 collection is inspired by a recent trip to Isla Mujeres (the “Island of Women”) off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The architecture and bright tropical colors of the residential buildings, the crafts, handmade textiles and the Caribbean coast served as strong influences for the colors and silhouettes of the collection. The collection – like the women of the island – is bright, young, fresh, and romantic and is a celebration of women.
Sebastian Professional and fashion designer Christian Siriano have teamed up in a yearlong effort to inspire ultimate versatility in trendsetters everywhere. Beginning in September 2013, Sebastian Professional will tap the designer to curate bold inspiration for stylists and consumers, crown the newest styling trailblazers of the Sebastian tribe, and design iconic product packaging, all while supporting Siriano’s design collections through June 2014.
Sebastian Professional Global Art Director Shay Dempsey shares behind-the-scenes tips on how he styled hair for this "Beauty Lost in the Woods" shoot with photography by Rachel Jeraffi, makeup by Joanne Adolfo and wardrobe styling by Jesse J Collections.For this shoot Shay wanted to create a hairstyle that was edgy, yet not overdone. The fringe is very choppy and and really opens up the face. The rest of the hair has some short layers, moving from shorter to longer to create movement throughout the hair.
