Take her blonde down a few temps to a lovely shade of platinum ice. This striking formula, courtesy of hairstylist Chipo Mulenga from Modesto, CA, is winter wonderland chic, turning a traditional frozen blonde into a white-hot platinum blonde. “I have always loved making a statement in everything I do—dramatic and bold colors that stand out have always been my absolute favorite when it comes to the overall vision of my work,” shares Chipo. “When fall was approaching these colors definitely stood out to me because they are not so common in the small town that I live in, so I wanted my clients to stand out from all the other women with ordinary blonde hair.” According to Chipo, these bold colors aren’t for just anyone, they are for the ladies who want to turn heads as they walk into a room. Here’s his chillingly, cool formula!
