Entry into Keune’s highly esteemed ArtSeries Trophy is now open. The ArtSeries Trophy offers a selection of Keune’s finest delegates an invaluable opportunity to showcase their vision and skill across two main categories: Apprentice and Senior hairstyling. The bi-annual competition provides an exciting platform for dedicated hairdressers to explore their creativity, each stylist tasked with creating their own interpretation of the ‘Nocturnal Reflection’ collection. The photographic compendium signifies the foremost step in the ArtSeries journey, with hairdressers invited to challenge their creativity and digitally capture their vision. Unveiled at Keune’s exclusive Gallery soiree, the collection features eleven artistic looks conceived by Keune’s respected Creative Team. Drawing aesthetic cues from the colours of nocturne, the enigmatic portfolio is at once masterfully envisioned, and seamlessly executed.
‘Nocturnal Reflection is about the inner darkness we hide within ourselves, and facing these fears head on. Every day we tightly control what others think about us by creating our own personal brand. We disguise our true emotions and personality by twisting the way we really want to act, solely to conform to what society says is the acceptable norm. When you look around, how do you really know who portrays a true reality? It’s time to face your fears and be proud to show your true inner self. The look is powerfully soft. It’s dark, yet electric and shows a blur between day and night. The colour pallet melts together with gradients and bold shades. Blue tones are accented with red and violet hues – like the jewel of the night. Slate to charcoal shades are combines with intense and offbeat warm yellow and coppers. Metallic reds and ash tones are used to accent. Each look shows strong longs, but is finished with soft edges to create distinct silhouettes’ – Keune
The Challenge: Challenge yourself, and prove you are one of the industry’s best hairstylists by entering the pinnacle of the ArtSeries – The Trophy.
