Artistic inspiration is everywhere; you just have to be open to seeing it. For the Behind the Chair Stylist Choice Awards Artistic Presentation, Sam Villa and his ArTeam* channeled their inner warriors. Strong models dressed in couture armor made of leather, silk, metal and chiffon portrayed the fierce spirit of warriors, along with their vulnerability. Black and white, strong and soft, shiny and dull it kept the audience guessing. Hair took on a similar juxtaposition soft, full, texturized updos and blunt fringe were spiked with shiny metal thorns... jet-black hair exploded with white accents and paler than pale blonde blew up the stage. The only thing missing was crimson accents...stay tuned!
