#MakeoverMonday Featuring Nicole

On June 29, 2015 by Corey Powell

Nicole has been coming in to get a bleach and tone for a while. Last time she came in she said, “I want healthy long hair.” So when she came in this time we decided on a medium brown color. Nicole’s hair is naturally almost black, so looks pretty natural, I think.


I love working with Nicole because she’s not afraid to try new things. As a transgender person, she pull off almost anything!

What do you guys think, do you like her better blonde or brunette?

#MakeoverMonday with Allyson

On June 22, 2015 by Corey Powell

Allyson is a talented singer/musician and knows my friend Sandy. Sandy had told her she needs to come see the #kingofblonde. I love a good project, Allyson wanted granny gray hair. We spent the day together with 7-stage bleaching and toning. I used Olaplex, Loreal Professional, Dialight-Rechesse, and Redken Shades. IMG_7656

#MakeoverMonday with Longtime Client, Susan

On June 15, 2015 by Corey Powell

FullSizeRender-6Susan has been a longtime client. I usually paint some Balayage highlights creating a natural beige-y blonde. This time, we decided to create a warmer, golden, strawberry blonde. Using #Inoa by #Loreal professional then painting a few Balayage highlights adding #olaplex for healthy hair. Sometimes just little change, slight adjustment, creates amazing results, what do you think?

IMG_7542Ellen Hollman was referred to me by Ann Morgan – the key hairdresser on AMC’s new TV show, ‘Into The Badlands’. The show needed Ellen to go platinum blonde for her character, Zypher. This was a super fun and challenging job. I love it, they love it!

#MakeoverMonday Featuring Roxy Sorkin

On June 1, 2015 by Corey Powell


Roxy came in recently looking to brighten up her look. Her mother, Julia Sorkin says I’m the #KingofBlonde. So I did my magic with two multi-tonal techniques – balayge highlights, and created a halo of light.


#MakeoverMonday Featuring Virginia

On May 25, 2015 by Corey Powell

This week’s #MakeoverMonday is the definition of makeover. My client, Virginia, an art school teacher, sought me out because she loves Margot Robbie’s hair color.

As you can see in the before shot, her hair was nowhere near Margot’s or anywhere near blonde. We brainstormed a bit and upon finishing the consultation, decided to take it a step farther than Margot’s look— bleach and tone it! What a transformation. IMG_7149

Virginia looks like a whole new woman! Not only does the color change up her entire look, but it’s sexy, fun and edgy. The added texture she has from bleaching it will also allow her to try out all different kinds of short, fun styles.

Although an overall bleached look like Virginia’s requires consistent upkeep, the right techniques (like toning) and proper every day care will keep your hair looking bright and healthy.


#MakeoverMonday Featuring Georgia Connick

On May 18, 2015 by Corey Powell

Georgia ConnickI recently had the pleasure of working with Georgia Connick, daughter of Harry Connick Jr., who came in and told me that she needed something new to brighten up her style. Georgia’s mother, Jill who is also a client of mine, told her daughter that if she wanted to go lighter/blonde that she had to see Corey Powell, ‘The King of Blonde.”

Her hair was light brunette to begin with, so I hand painted and balayaged some highlights throughout to create a beautiful blonde look with depth and texture. As you can see in the photo, the highlights brighten up her whole face, and now here eyes really pop! It’s a great look on Georgia for summer.

This look is great if your hair is on the darker side and you want to go lighter for the warmer months, without changing your look too drastically. I love her new look!




#MakeoverMonday with Kayslee Collins

On May 11, 2015 by Corey Powell

Kayslee Collins had an important meeting to attend for a job and came in to see me to have the pink removed from her hair and bring her back to her natural color, blonde. We removed as much of the pink as possible in one day without compromising the integrity of her hair. We had her come in the following day to add some balayage highlights and lowlights to create some contrast. Kayslee has beautiful hair and is such a beautiful girl! She is stunning as a natural blonde, do you agree? Leave comments below!

PEOPLE.COM: Michelle Monaghan

On September 8, 2014 by Corey Powell


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.
