When a colorist comes along with both an eye for mixing creative color and placing creative color, the results are often stunning, and this bold transformation created by Goldwell Regional Artistic Team Member Tiffany Blair is all kinds of satisfying.

Inspired by the disconnection portrayed in Goldwell’s D!srupt collection, Tiffany took those elements and translated them into an undercut with carefully placed creative color. Here’s how she did it.
