“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, but it is also a wide subject studied as part of aesthetics, culture, social psychology and sociology. Today, cosmetology and beauty treatments that range from hairstyling to nails polish, with their sophisticated and innovative applications of color, play a key role in our society, in particular related to fashion trends and identity formation.
With this special session, we aim at gathering together scholars and experts of color in the field of beauty care and hairstyle for sharing their views, experiments and best practices involving color and coloring. For instance, which are the best practices for obtaining a homogenous color and well-balanced color schemes? Are there any specific techniques to stabilize the result? How to assess the final quality of makeup? Is color analysis a key point for defining makeup or clothing? These are merely some of the open questions characterizing the field.
In order to stimulate discussion and foster innovative research, we are looking forward to receiving abstracts that address the specific topic of this session.
