Daniel Roldan: Going Blonde

Web Editor | July 10, 2011 | 6:06 PM
When Nicholas French learned his friend wanted a major hair cut and an 18-year-old student wanted to go blonde, he recruited them as models for our special makeover issue. French asked colleague and fellow Matrix Global Artistic Designer Daniel Roldan to offer his color expertise.

The second model, Chrissy, had a more dramatic color change in mind. Although she wanted to go platinum, Roldan decided it would be too extreme on her natural Level-3 shade. Instead, he lifted the base three to four levels and used two different shades for highlights.

MAKEOVER: Basic Blonde To Purple/Lilac Melt

Maggie Mulhern | February 9, 2017

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was. She wanted to be an all over platinum blonde at first, but then had mentioned how she's always wanted to have purple hair. Her dream came true that day." Details here.
