Zachary Mesquit, aka @platinum_perfection, loves crafting the perfect blonde tones.Over the last few years, it’s become my specialty to do ultra platinum/white blonde hair,” Zachary reveals. “I love doing blonde hair because no two blondes are ever the same, and I love how eye-catching platinum blonde hair is—you can easily spot a client of mine in any crowd.” Not only is this white and gray blonde absolute perfection, it was a color correction! We needed to get the info and Zachary gave us the details. Check out the formula below! 

 

Starting Level:
“This client came in with hair that had previously been colored with black box dye that she had attempted to strip out herself,” Zach explained. He had quite the task ahead of him!

 

Cost:
“The whole process took about 6 hours and the cost was about $600,” Zachary shared with us.
