In INSTYLE May June, De Lorenzo educator Lisa Polini embarked on some serious colour work to explore the realms of De Lorenzo’s Nova 360° colour portfolio from pantone peach to violet purple, while rocking bobs, short layer work, soft textures and a metallic styling palette. Introducing the She’s Golden session.

“The looks were styled with the De Lorenzo Elements range,” Lisa explained of the on set process. “Earth-Air-Wind-Fire. There is always a product in this range that allows you to finish hair with a polished or textured look and re-work as needed.”

“When it came to colour for this shoot, the De Lorenzo Novacolor 360° concept was implemented. A combination of their Hybrid colour technology was paired with and enhanced by our Novasemi and Novafusion shades. I was also blessed to have a play with something new and exciting in the pipeline for the company. Without giving any secrets away, I was blown away with the luminous shine and saturation that can be achieved. It’s something I know our salons will be thrilled to see launch so stay tuned to see that little secret!”

Beyond the impressive style and colour work, wiggery was an important facet, and something that had a few hurdles before the session was shot.

“I have to give a shout out to one of our colour accounts in WA called Hair Rehab,” Lisa said. “The owner Sharryn has been in the wig and extension business for as long as I can remember and is heavily involved in the television scene over here. We ordered the hair pieces and wigs to use along with the models own hair, with what we thought was plenty of time however the pandemic had other plans for us an we still had nothing to colour 48 hours before flying to Sydney. She let me raid her private stash and I knocked out some midnight colour sessions on the Friday and Saturday nights in the salon to get everything done in time. I focused on the mood board and used the references to create a colour palette that complemented the theme.”

The result of that creative expression is right here to inspire you. Discover She’s Golden amidst a range of essential editorial, business, product and news pieces in the latest issue of INSTYLE.
