Inspired by how well his Frozen Blonde color came out, Joseph Cuozzo, Cuozzo Studio for Hair, Oranjestad Aruba (Opening January 1st!) and Owner of Zion The Hair Salon in Madison, NJ, decided to create a progression of his frozen blonde hue. By infusing any icy blonde with highlights of icy teal, Joseph was able to create his multidimensional, concrete blonde shade. Best of all, Joseph was able to achieve this color on Level 3 hair!
