“Rebecca’s image was created using our new Paul Mitchell The Demi Muted Metallics demi-permanent colour series and was a striking representation of the diverse and on-trend colour results that The Demi can create,” said Paul Mitchell Managing Director John Pizzey. This spoke to the competition guidelines that asked entrants to celebrate current commercial Australian hair fashion trends, using only Paul Mitchell® Professional Hair Color & Paul Mitchell styling products. The wealth of interpretations that made up the entries showcase the colour range’s extreme versatility.
