“A good design stems from a blank canvas that is prepared to receive the foundation of creativity. ‘Transient ‘is my idea of a classic platform that can transcend with time,” divulges British hair pro Michelle Thompson about her collection dubbed “Transient”—and from which we show you just two of the amazing looks from the set. “’Transient’ is an amalgamation of structure and fluidity setting the platform for alternate styling that meets the needs of the woman of today. Targeted at the woman who wants to make her own choices and be in charge of her own look without an apology.” Sleek, structured and sophisticated, we think hair pro Thompson succeeded.

Creative Director and Hair Stylist: Michelle Thompson; Photographer: Richard Miles; Make Up Artist: Kamanza Amihyia & Juan Lopez; Stylist: Shevelle Rhule. All for Avlon
