by Jamie Newman | August 3, 2017

Zachary Dillon Mesquit created his own hashtag called #BleachItAgain. His page makes you want to push the envelope and take that level 9 client to a 10, and then take her even beyond that! In Mequit's work, platinum isn't light and bright enough! His page is a mix of perfect icy blonde hair and his hilarious personality. It really doesn't get better than that!

Valsamis used GL Tapes from Great Lengths to give this braid depth and thickness.
