Coachella weekend two starts today, and we are just only on the cusp of festival season coming into full swing.

Last weekend, Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas, along with Matrix stylists Cory Hoffman and Victor Mendoza, created trendy and Coachella-ready looks at weekend one that you can replicate for your clients for this weekend and the festivals that are to come this summer in your own cities and towns. 

Papanikolas used the new Matrix Color Melting technique which is the use of multiple Matrix SOCOLOR, Color Sync and Color Graphics Lacquer shades fused together to create the ‘melted’ effect. For styling, he used the new Matrix Style Link Air Dry BOHO Creams along with products from the Matrix Style Link and Matrix Biolage R.A.W. lines to create a Bohemian-inspired look perfect for festie season

Click through the slide show to see how Papanikolas, Hoffman, Mendoza, with the help of stylists Erica Reynolds Keelen, Ursula Goff and makeup by Alex Faction, achieved these looks.
