Preferred color line: Pulp Riot

My goals: Become a Pulp Riot platform artist and educate with the brand internationally. 

My favorite technique right now: Anything prism—halo, over-directed, single panel. I love how a simple change in the direction of the color placement can make color flow so differently from normal melts of rainbow hair.   

Top color tip: Just remember, keep your head above the water! Oceans, pools and hot showers will fade hues, so clients should make dry shampoo their new best friend.
