Award season is upon us and fashion week is just around the corner. Pantone has declared the color of the year as classic blue. Sleeve volume was the talk of the town at the Golden Globes and self-care is going next level for 2020. What’s on the horizon for beauty, especially hair care?

We can clearly see the time, forethought and expertise that went into making this line is second to none. Canalé is truly a master of his craft.
