When it comes to hair, color can enhance movement and movement can enhance color. The subtle dance between hair color, cuts and styling is something that should be taken into account with every creation we make. Acknowledging the foundations that make up the craft, Mark van Westerop’s latest collection — Blank Canvas — revisits the basics with an inspiring abstract take on it.

“This collection is bursting with colour. It is an ode to craftsmanship. We're going back to basics. It's all about technique, both in colour and in cutting and styling. I like to be inspired by modern, abstract painting. I love to watch that explosion of colours, that ease and freedom. In this collection I go back to foundations, to primary and secondary colours and the structure of the colour star. Colours in their purest form - red, yellow and blue - can be seen in every look. By positioning and stacking them in a certain way, new colours are created and they kind of merge with each other.”
