Oscar-Worthy Haircolor Formulas by Joico Celebrity Colorist Denis de Souza

It’s Hollywood’s biggest night of the year, and naturally, every celebrity glam squad pulls out all the stops. The gowns, the jewels, the lips, the eyes and of course, the haircolor, must all be perfection for the Oscars red carpet, and the fabulous after parties of course! 

The event makes for ideal trend-spotting for the color designs that salon clients will request for months to come, and inspiration for their hairstylists. Joico Celebrity Colorist Denis de Souza shares how-to recreate the hues of Felicity Jones and Laura Dern, two of the best haircolor looks of the night!
