Less than a month after graduating from the Salon Institute, one recent graduate had her work featured on a national magazine’s website for jumping on a current trend in hair coloring.

Good Housekeeping’s online Beauty Section included a photo of work by Lauren Viviano, a September 2015 graduate, in an October article discussing the hair color trend “oil slick hair”. In the article, GoodHousekeeping.com Beauty Editor Samantha Escobar discusses the technique that has been gaining popularity this fall, where a colorist layers jewel tones over darker hair (high fives to the brunettes!). The desired result is a shimmery, iridescent blend of colors similar to the way spilled gasoline looks in the rain.201112 Lauren Viviano Work in Good Housekeeping_v2

“Oil slick is a great color option for brunettes because the new growth is subtle,” Viviano said. “I love experimenting with new trends in color and this one is a fit for so many of my clients who want fun color without super high maintenance.”

The Toledo-resident just took her talents to Snip Salon, in Maumee, and is excited to continue bringing new color trends to the Toledo area.

In our interview she mentioned a new Phoenix ombre she’s itching to dive into … stay tuned for more details on that soon!
