Satin Dolls The interplay of light in polished textures creates movement and palpable luxury in this new collection from Matrix Artistic Director Nick Stenson. Satine, Nicole Kidman’s character in Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge (20 th Century Fox, 2001), was the inspiration and the namesake for this collection by Matrix Artistic Director Nick Stenson, seen exclusively on these pages. Evoking the rich sensuality of a courtesan’s life in turn-of-the-century Paris, the styles Stenson created reveal the saturated color and voluptuous texture of fine satin. “I wanted to demonstrate how simple haircolor designs can deliver maximum impact as long as the hair is shiny and healthy,” says Stenson. He achieved the luxe effect with Matrix’s new ColorInsider, a no-ammonia, precision permanent haircolor that aims to maximize high-definition results. “In all of the images, the hair holds its shine from base to ends, which is critical for the overall look and feel of luxury,” he explains. ✂ —Karen Ford > 64 American Salon June 2013 PHOTOGRAPHY: GAIL HADANI; MAKEUP: KEVIN PEREZ; LIGHTING ASSISTANT: MALCOLM NEO
