Cookie changed her ‘do! Taraji P. Henson, known for her role on the hit show Empire recently revealed a very different look—turning in her long black locks for an iced purple ombré. Courtesy of PRAVANA Guest Artist Marcia Hamilton, Taraji’s bright new strands were created using PRAVANA VIVIDS haircolor, blending to purple perfection with peek-a-boo blue streaks and a gradual fade to silver. The result is a multidimensional stormy dream-—#fabulous!
