Essential Brands: IGORA #RoyalTakeOver – Lucid Nocturnes

After opening the doors to their IGORA ROYAL colour labs, Schwarzkopf Professional have already seen two inspirational IGORA #RoyalTakeOver collaborations with hair artists and influencers:

  • In January 2018, Schwarzkopf Professional Global Colour Ambassador, Lesley Jennison (@lesleyjennison) and Brazilian Colour Specialist, Jean Philippe Santos (@phjean) re-invented red with their Dusted Rouge collection
  • In March 2018, Australia-based, International Schwarzkopf Professional Ambassador, Matt Clements (@mattclements_colourist) and Spanish Colour Visionnaire, Jorge Cáncer (@expresioncreativos) developed a new take on nude shades with Disheveled Nudes

What is it?
The third instalment of the IGORA #RoyalTakeOver sees Schwarzkopf Professional North American Colour Director, Rossa Jurenas (@rossajurenas) and Californian colour-trendsetter, Linh Phan (@bescene) take back the night with their seductive Lucid Nocturnes tones!


What can you do with it?
IGORA #RoyalTakeOver Lucid Nocturnes is a collection of six deep and seductive, highly-pigmented, midnight shades that provide a punky colour twist with a radiant finish. The creative influence from both Rossa Jurenas and Linh Phan have paved the way for a modern take on darker tones with gothic nuances and vibrant contrasts.


What is the big deal?
From hues of blue and purple to burgundy and ivy, two new in-salon colour services – Total Eclipse and Tainted Love – have been developed to create the key looks:

  • Total Eclipse – Rossa Jurenas’ signature look
    A seductive look created with the Eclipse Visor Technique; deep shades of iridescent purple and blue tonal placements spotlight the fringe, adding a punky twist to shorter styles.
  • Tainted Love – Linh Phan’s signature look
    A striking yet sophisticated look created with the Tainted Veil Technique; warm burgundy and dark ivy tones frame the face, adding contrast and character to longer hair.

Give me the facts!

  • The third IGORA #RoyalTakeOver offers a modern take on midnight colour through six co-created shades from team Lucid Nocturnes
  • All IGORA #RoyalTakeOver shades can be completely customised to create amazing pastel colours thanks to the IGORA #RoyalTakeOver Pastelfier
  • Both IGORA #RoyalTakeOver looks are featured in this season’s
    Essential Looks collection with catwalk and salon variations
