Bishops Chamblee Teaches Lived in Color Class at Paul Mitchell The School Atlanta
Paul Mitchell The School Atlanta recently welcomed Bishops Chamblee to their school to teach their students a class on ‘Lived in Color.’ This newer hair color trend ascribes to neither the balayage nor highlights school of thought. Instead, the stylist blends highlights and color to allow one’s existing color to grow out more naturally and gradually. Several advantages point to why this trend has caught on. While the process of achieving Lived in Color is slightly more time-consuming up-front, clients won’t need to go back for much maintenance, at most every six months, saving time and money for the consumer. It is also much healthier for the hair. Celebrity stylist Johnny Ramirez first pioneered the technique when he sought to recreate how his daughter’s hair naturally lightened in the sun for his clients.
Bishops Chamblee, assistant manager Sara King, and stylist Grace Moncrief were on hand to demonstrate why a Lived in Color technique would work well for many clients with its low maintenance ease. Grace taught the class and achieved the desired result using Magma and 20vol Wellexon Perfect, provided by Bishops color partner Wella. The final result was a lived-in shag with beach waves, as the top photo shows. Ms. Moncreif detailed each process step for the students, including a “how-to” for the initial color consultation and color waiver. The shop has ventured out to hair schools before, and Sara and Grace could answer general questions about the ins and outs of being a professional stylist to the 25 students while the color was processed.
