George Mennella / Geo Palette Color & Design System


George Mennella is a master stylist / colorist / New York salon owner and the inventor of the revolutionary "Geo Palette Color & Design System" and a beauty industry super star.

George Mennella’s passion for the beauty industry, one of many, has led him to develop A totally new creative color and design system called the Geo Palette. The Geo Palette is the culmination of his creative drive and integrity developed over the past twenty five years. George says hair color in recent years has emerged as the new frontier and with the Geo Palette it has evolved into a “living art form”.

The nineteen eighties was a time when multi-coloration and tonality with foil coloring techniques had begun to change the look of hair color effects. According to George the conventional aluminum foil wrapped coloring method still used today has not changed over these many years. Because the color is hidden inside the foil the colorist must “track” and remember the color placement. 
With the Geo Palette hair color is placed on thin clear flexible plastic sheets as well as on the brim of a clear plastic circular Geo Palette, which looks like a wide brimmed hat. Color is applied to the Geo Palette surface and clear plastic sheets using an “artist brush” with as many as four or six colors to create multi colored 3-dementional effects. Everything in the color system is reusable and eco-friendly and the colorist can easily track and see the color placement, as the hair colorants are always visible on the Palette. The results are amazing with shimmering color that far surpasses the conventional two tonal foil weaving method currently in use.

The Geo Palette eliminates all the boundaries of conventional hair color design making even the most intricate patterns of multi-dimensional hair color designs easier to achieve, more time friendly, and creative. The subtle variation of color, shading, and intensity is absolutely stunning and beautiful. And the visual impact while using the Geo Palette excites and piques everyone’s interest.

As a salon owner, stylist / colorist we're always looking for new ways to create stunning color effects, grow our income and strengthen the bottom line. The Geo Palette color and design system is the vehicle that brings a new technology and technique to existing traditions. With the Geo Palette both natural and dramatic runway looks can easily be achieved by a “Palette Artist” as demonstrated here in the Geo Palette Color and Design System Video. .

With so much creativity it should not come as a surprise that the Nassau Museum of Art in New York has recently recognized George Mennella’s Geo Palette Color and Design System as a “Living Art Form”. You might say George is the Picasso of the beauty industry.

OK, so what’s the speed of dark?

·        How do you tell when you’re out of invisible ink?
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Hair Styles of the Stars...The Karlie Cut


Drawing inspiration from the "Hair Styles of the Star, Celebrities and Super Models" is how many find their way to a salon. If you're looking for a new modern hair style that fits your busy active life style... "the haircut of for the times"  has arrived. Vogue calls it the Chop, others call it the "Karlie Cut" named for American super model Karlie Kloss.
 Already a fashion world veteran at age 20, Karlie Kloss recently cut off seven inches of her dark blonde. Vogue declared it the “style cut of the moment” in a four-page feature story in their January 2013 issue, saying “the new hair cut is swingy, sexy and refreshingly easy to wear. The Karlie Cut can easily be adjusted with a few snips to suits all hair types (straight, curly, wavy), face shapes and adds a up-lifting modern hair style for women of all ages.

The length frames Karlie's face at just below the jaw and rests just above the shoulders with some layering in front and is topped off with brow brushing bangs. It’s neither "long or short_ a bob nor a shag, but a one-length haircut with a slight layer in front to frame the face. This low maintenance style-cut takes advantage of her natural wavy hair and just long enough to gel it back and add extensions for a longer look. Karlie love's her new hair style cut and can’t stop touching it. Best of all she doesn’t have to blow it dry everyday, just shampoo, condition, put on lipstick and mascara, finger comb and its good to go.

Versions of the Karlie Cut (curly, straight and wavy) with its length hovering some where between the chin and shoulders, with a few layers and fringe has been spotted on models like Arizona Muse, Catherine McNeil, Karen Elson and Lily Kwong.

“When somebody notable changes their hair style and finds their look, it sometimes catches on and becomes a trend.” The Karlie Cut has inspired an array of reactions in the hair styling and fashion world. Some stylist's and fashionista's are asking is the "Karlie Cut ..the Next ’Rachel? Isn't it about time that shorter hair styles for women of all ages make a come back?
