Matrix Color Melting Trends

Festival season is in full swing, and Matrix has the go to looks and steps to inspire us all!

Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas, along with Matrix Stylists Cory Hoffman and Victor Mendoza, created trendy and Coachella-ready looks on Cara Santana, Elaine Daneshrad, Becca Tobin and Remi Ishizuka. George used the new Matrix Color Melting technique which is the use of multiple Matrix SOCOLOR, Color Sync & Color Graphics Lacquer shades fused together to create the ‘melted’ effect.  For styling, he used the new  Matrix Style Link Air Dry BOHO Creams (launching in May) along with products from the  Matrix Style Link and  Matrix Biolage R.A.W.  lines to create a Bohemian look perfect for the festival.

Please see below for the formulas to achieve these Coachella & Music Festival looks on the trendy girl squad!
