The Rose by Ann Bray

A rose is a rose is a an updo? You heard us right! Working for Aquage, Ann Bray set a standard for hairdressing that's truly blossomed into something beautiful. Click on the picture to view our gallery of hair roses created by artists from all over the globe.

Ann Bray created The Rose for Aquage in 2012. Since then, the design has bloomed throughout the world, with great hairdressers across the globe creating their own versions of The Rose. It has truly become a standard by which all great and aspiring hairdressers hold their own work -- as well as the creations of their contemporaries: The mark of a true hair artist must include an exquisite rose.

Here, we tip our hats to Ann Bray for planting such a beautiful rose garden... of hair, that is. On the left, check out our gallery of rose-inspired styles that bring new meaning to floral designs!
