Flo's inspiration:

The greatest artist is God and his creations always inspires me.Even though beauty is subjective, we can all agree that nature is always beautiful. I wanted to create a look that is unique for a person that is a perfectionist by nature but also likes texture, likes to stand out and likes to be different. I took my inspiration from nature(frangipani flower) and current movement that allows bright, unique hair colors to be accepted everywhere. Yellow has been a strong trend that is slightly fading away, just like the color on my model and new shades of coral and pink are taking over. My look perfectly intercalates the softness and beauty of the veil inspired by the Banyan Tree and messy texture with the strength and sharpness of a precise haircut. My inspiration was all draw while on vation in Ubud, Bali this year. The look is also salon wearable because the veil can be pushed to the back  and the colors are just enough to make the look interesting but not boring.
