Luisi submitted her portfolio entry highlighting her top cuts, color and styles of her career, along with brainstormed inspiration boards for her dream editorial shoot for the judges' consideration.
At the photo shoot, judge and shoot mentor Doughty coached Luisi through the process of putting together an editorial quality photo shoot based on her inspiration of the Yin Yang theory.
Onita said "inspiration for my Yin/Yang Trilogy collection stems from teaching the new stylists in training at my salon Chips over the past 10 years. As we are a multi-ethnic salon, we have a multitude of ethnic combinations of hair to work with. I noticed that our stylists were shy when it came to ethnic hair so I developed a training program which encompasses both textures.
This collection is designed to show the duality of the textures and how they can simultaneously yield the same intended, harmonious look, as expressed in the theory behind the Yin/Yang."
Onita Luisi demonstrates Girls Love Curls with step by step instructions on how to recreate the look.
Girls love Curls - Look 1
Model #1: Ashley
"Ashley, like many blondes that we see at Chips Salon, has a mane of fine fabric," says Luisi. "She needed extra volume and shine for her hair."
1. Hair was prepped with Paul Mitchell Extra-Body Daily Shampoo® and Conditioner®.
3. The hairstyle is blown-out full with the Paul Mitchell 413 Sculpting Brush.
5. Curls were then tousled and brushed lightly with the Paul Mitchell 413 Sculpting Brush.
Model #2: Minta
"Minta is typical of the client I see every day at Chips Salon. Her hair was medium-textured silky soft with a natural corkscrew curl."
1. After being prepped with Paul Mitchell Super Skinny® Daily Shampoo and Super Skinny® Daily Treatment, Minta's hair responded well with some of Super Skinny Relaxing BalmTM.
3. Hairstyle was held with Paul Mitchell Hold Me TightTM finishing spray.
