“This makeover gives us a chance to really celebrate the new Matrix ColorInsider Permanent Haircolor,” says Sandra Smith about the new line launching in March. “Although the cut itself will be dramatic,” says Brian Smith, “I want to give her a new shape that will give her movement, options and a flattering fringe. That, combined with the color, will make the finish that much more interesting and fashionable.”
