Wella NextGen Team on the Runway at Beauty Changes Lives Experience

Wella NexGen Coming Soon!

The Wella NextGen Team will be on the runway at the Beauty Changes Lives Experience. Wella will bring the Trend Vision theme to the Beauty Changes Lives Experience on Sunday, April 29. Attendees at the ABS signature gala will see Wella’s NextGen team interpret two Trend Vision themes, drawing on Pinterest boards to create looks for each model.

Nontouring and Pure Chroma

“Nontouring” says, “Soft is beautiful but only contrasting is daring.” Like a beauty filter, Nontouring harmonizes the lines of the hairstyle, mellowing color so that even the most daring cut gives a wearable, flattering look without compromising edginess like seen here!

“Pure Chroma” builds on the Nontouring technique and is all about intentionally choosing tones in the same family to achieve a harmonized effect. Wella’s NextGen team will present a palette of three single minded pure colors using red, blue and black.


Inspiration is the key so you might be asking, what inspired the Wella team? Wella Field Signature Artist Galin Hristov says, “The global Wella team takes inspiration from all walks of life”. From fashion to architecture to what’s happening in the media. It is so important to identify what is impacting our next generation in a way that inspires them to be creative and express their passion.

Each member of the NextGen team was selected after competing in a photo contest. Meet the Wella NextGen mentor and team below:
