Recently, Rick Mosley Hair colorist Abbey attended “Color Today,” put on by  It’s “the” event to attend if you work in the world of hair color and want to stay on top of the hottest looks, which we do!

While there, we ran into many style “celebrities,” including…

  • Kim Vo, who has many celebrity clients and has worked on ABC’s Extreme Makeover, E’s Daily 10 and Bravo’s Shear Genius.  He has a list of celebrity clients and is most well known for being the “official blonder” for the stars.
  • Jason Backe and Jennifer MacDougall from L’Oréal Professionnel and Ted Gibson Salon in NYC.  They also work with many of the women on the Real Housewives of New York.
  • The “Queen of Color,” Beth Minardi from NYC.  She has a long list of celebrity clients, including Taylor Swift, Cameron Diaz, Kirsten Dunst, and Brad Pitt.  At Rick Mosley we have taken many Minardi classes and model many of our color theory and techniques after Beth’s.

At the event, most of the segments started with a runway show, similar to what you would see at a fashion show – except that the focus was on the hair.  After each show, the presenters came out to explain their work, do live technique demonstrations, and explain the color formulas used.

The hair models were all professional working models as well – all 5’10” and skinny!  We even recognized some of them from America’s Next Top Model, including Mikaela from cycle 16, Laura from cycle 13, and Brooke from cycle 6.  While we are used to seeing Brooke with long brown hair, she was transformed with her hair shaved on one side and long on the other – a trend from the 80’s that has recently reappeared in Hollywood.  (Brooke is in the bottom photo.)

At Rick Mosley Hair, education is our top priority so we’ll be sure to share information from all of the great events we attend and host.  Whether you are walking the runways or the streets of Des Moines, be sure to set up an appointment today if you are looking for a celebrity look.  Our next post will highlight some of the hair coloring trends that we’ve been seeing both on celebrities and at the shows we’ve been attending.
