From what you can see, that’s exactly how it goes — the mastery behind the canvas starts with testing colors against small strands of freshly bleached locks. When the right color combo and designs are agreed upon, Matthews swiftly works her magic across your follicles blocking off sections with light tape to ensure clean cut edges and smooth gradients throughout the lengths.

“This is the most fun I’ve had with hair color ever! Toxic free lightener and manic panic”

The concept behind the style was to bring out exuberant colors and play with linework and shapes. Using nothing but paint brushes, carefully applying color to the blocked off sections and trying not to cross contaminate colors are the challenge for any level of skill — Matthews, however, paints away like she’s completely a landscape of 10 years. The amount of joy and passion really can be seen with every swipe of color applied to Wallis’ head.
