The iso-education never stops for team Chumba!

Just as we were starting to feel a little bit too isolated from the rest of the world here in Melbourne, we were fortunate enough to attend the online, live show from O&M’s flagship salon in New York, O&M.nyc @originalmineralnyc.

Colour Specialist Stephanie Clark @stephanieatnyc also demonstrated her amazing hair painting skills and Colourist Paprika (Papi) Velour @bleotch giving us a taste of her specialty, the ‘bleach and tone’.
