How-To: Vibin’ Red

Not only is L’ANZA Global Healing Color Director Leah Freeman a bad-ass colorist behind the chair who also slays on the stage, she has a wealth of knowledge and she loves to share it with her fellow colorists! Check out Leah’s tips, insight and the how-to below to see her killer VIBES color work!

One tube of color, but 3 jobs! Leah talks about why she loves L’ANZA HEALING COLOR®.

Leah talks girl power! “Just know when you stand onstage with anybody, whether it is a male or a female, your strength and presence is important!”

Leah says the consultation is the key to successful color!

She shared that the consultation is key because a client’s lifestyle changes. “Clients want you to do what you did last time, but the challenge is: what happened from this time to last time?” Leah says. Leah doesn’t even allow her stylists to write down color formulas, because it should be different each time and it should take into consideration the client’s current hair condition.

BTC had a blast hanging out with Leah at her salon!

Leah gets B.I.G. (believe, inspire and grow) with L’ANZA! She is proud to be a part of their Healing Haircare family because the belief in supporting hairdressers by making sure their professional products are diversion-free. She is also inspired by the brand’s commitment to being a green, PETA-friendly company, and one that makes sure hairdressers are growing as an individual and as well as a member of the L’ANZA team.

Education is so important to Leah—her salon is set up for hands-on classes of 36 participants and up to 70 stylists for a demo class!
