Having Balayaged hair for over 20 years, Shaw's latest Pinwheel collection was inspired by her new movement in haircolor, painting the breaks of hair. "Haircolor has to move with the haircuts of today which have more air and pieces" says Candy Shaw. "Also, when you paint the breaks or peaks of the hair you bring highlights forward to reflect the light, " Doing it in a pinwheel formation follows the shape of the head and helps to identify where the hair opens and closes. In some cases Shaw teases the scalp and only paints the ends when using multiple colors.
