What Happens After Dark?
The Art of Mixology is coming to the salon with the launch of Vish After Dark, a new concept designed to release the creative genius in every colourist. Cocktail your colours to explore new trends and techniques, and rest assured knowing that all of your colour creations and notes will be saved in the Vish app to recreate any time. “We want to free colourists to be more intrepid without risk,” explains Tim Howard, former salon owner and chief innovation officer at Vish. “Vish After Dark is the Vish alter-ego. We are talking ‘bar tab’ rather than bill and using the language of cocktails to highlight that mixing colour is both fun and expressive. But we also want colourists to mix responsibly, reducing product costs and ultimately eliminating waste.” Look out for Vish After Dark next month, and remember, mix responsibly.
