VVV Magazine: Noomi Rapace

On October 5, 2014 by Corey Powell


See this amazing before and after transformation on usually brunette actress Noomi Rapace for the cover of VVV Magazine. I took her super blonde and to a very sexy champagne tone that complimented her shimmery skin tone. This was a pretty big dramatic change for the “Promethius” actress that not only took some time to achieve, but also required some major skills to get her hair light enough to then tint to a champagne hue with very little damage.




Michelle Monaghan: The Best of Me

On September 29, 2014 by Corey Powell

Take a look at my most recent work on Michelle Monaghan‘s hair for her upcoming film “The Best of Me”. Like I mentioned in the past, I take many things into consideration when changing an actor’s hair color for a role. In this case Michelle’s hair was previously very reddish brown and the job required a more neutral/natural brown hue with light, soft, painted highlights for that “as close to real life” look that transmits perfectly on the big screen.

I hope you all get to see this beautiful love inspiring film.


2 Colors 1 Face

On September 23, 2014 by Corey Powell

Part of my job as a colorist working on celebrities and their forever changing looks is making sure that no matter what the demand of the look for a role is it should always still look flattering. Whether you go from light to dark, dark to light, and anywhere in between the hair should still look natural on the actor for a “as close to real life” effect. Here is a dual look on my client Alexandra Daddario from the hit show “True Detective” with light hair for her role on the show, then darker richer brunette for real life. key focal points for determining the right tones for both were her beautiful big blue eyes.

Staying true to her natural beauty, my client Michelle Monaghan has remain a brunette for many years. We have played around a little with her hair color by adding a few subtle highlights here and there to help lighten her hair up just a little bit for a more sun-kissed look. This time, we decided to take it to the next level and take her hair as light as possible with a very light natural looking honey blonde hue. Which was a very different look from her usual brunette locks we have seen in the past and on “True Detectives”.

Take a look at the before and after looks from coverage on People.com HERE.

Blonde is not just a color for Summer, especially with beautiful celebrities like Margot Robbie making their blonde tresses a staple to her signature look. Making sure that the correct blonde that is complimenting to a woman skin, eyes, and over all look is achieved is a challenge on its own. But it can be done! Take a look at a recent interview with The Huffington Post on achieving the right blonde for your “Blonde Ambition”. Click Here to read the article.

When Benicio asked me to come to his room and style his hair for the Academy Awards, I was stoked, sexy man. He was favorite to when for the movie Traffic. When I arrived he was in his underwear, in his underwear the entire time I was fixing his frock, I was nervous, SEXXXY.
