Talk about stellar haircolor! Inspired by a photo of an oil spill she found, Suzanne LaRotonda @suzie_larotonda channeled her inspiration right into winning the L’ANZA 2016 B.I.G. Winners of the #MyLanzaVibes Contest! “I already had my model in mind (who is the receptionist at the salon!), so I knew I wanted to do something with an array of vibrant colors—but still keep it very masculine,” Suzanne says. Why does Suzanne love VIBES? “It is such a high-impact color and has awesome longevity,” Suzanne says. “I don’t have to worry about my clients’ hair fading within a couple of weeks.” Want to see how she did it? Check out the full how-to!
