CHROMA EDITOR’S NOTEBOOK PERMANENT CREME COLOUR Love Is in the Air Hairstylists don’t need Valentine’s Day to be reminded how to show their love. CDP C O M P L E X CONDITIONS weightlessly, exactly where needed DEPOSITS high definition pigments PROTECTS February can really be a downer of a month. It’s cold, dreary and, if you’re not in a relationship (and sometimes even if you are), the middle of the month can be downright depressing.

So the next time you’re feeling down or overwhelmed by the world, just remember this: There’s a whole network of stylists out there, just like you, who are making the world more beautiful one head at a time. And while your hard work and dedication to your loved ones may not make national headlines, it certainly makes millions of people happy—and this editor sublimely proud.
