To "show' the collection, RUSK's team travels to salon and trade events around the country, demonstrating on live models the cutting techniques and styling products that achieve each look. As John says, "If you learn 'a haircut' you learn one look. If you learn techniques you can do many looks." To illustrate how concept becomes reality, here are the three rebel inspirations (with images chosen by me) and the interpretations for women now -- which play with ideas of separation, texture and movement in various ways -- courtesy of salon owner /stylist / platform artist Sherri Jessee.
