Led by colorist Chelsey Pickthorn and Creative Brand Director Jocelyn Simone, We Color Live has been spreading style, color and badass music across the States and into British Colombia. The all-star team of 10 packed into a tour van named “Gus,” working with over 100 hair students and 80 musicians during the course of 35 non-stop days. The tour was one of the first of its nature, featuring a two-day stylistic education workshop focusing on a new style concept of slow hair color (transformative hair painting and shaping). Chelsey and Jocelyn set out with the intent of using We Color Live as a platform for content creation and artist development for both hairdressers and musicians.
