58 The Colorist | DECEMBER 2018 | amanda warren l + Salon: Beleza Salon; Tulare, California + Beauty school: Milan Institute of Cosmetology; Visalia, California + Color line: Matrix Haircolor specialties: Blondes and balayage. My goals: To excel at being a new Matrix educator and tending to my blog,, which I launched this year to help women worldwide know what products they're using and how to achieve the best results with their hair and other elements of beauty. My best color tip: When applying toner after a lightening service, don't use conditioner in between. It closes the cuticle and makes it harder for the toner or vivid color to really live in the hair (and will ultimately rinse out faster). My favorite color trend/technique right now: I'm loving "micro" highlights and shadowed roots! They always blend so well and look amazing in all levels, plus my clients love the low-maintenance upkeep. @amandawarrenhair joshua boynton s + Salon: Wingate Hair Salon; Smyrna, Tennessee + Color line: #Mydentity @Guy_Tang Haircolor specialties: Balayage, vivids, metallics, pastels, and color corrections— color-correcting is my jam. My goals: I'm looking to open my own salon and buy a house within the next couple of years. A big goal of mine is to just make people happy. As hairstylists that's kind of our job, right? My proudest accomplishment: Since day one I've always thought it would be so cool to go on stage and share with people my love for this industry—and at Austin's World Fair Hair Show I did it! I love being a colorist because: When you turn clients around in the chair, show them their new hair and see their face glow—it's enough for me. My favorite color trend/technique right now: Coral/peach hair is everything. I actually did a look where I used #Mydentity Arctic Blue and Cosmic Coral to create this really cool contrast. I like the idea of putting together colors that we don't normally see in hair to create something new. kaylee smiley h + Salon: Salon 318; Marlow, Oklahoma + Beauty school: Elite Academy of Cosmetology; Duncan, Oklahoma + Color lines: Keracolor, Redken Haircolor specialties: Blonding, including highlighting and hair painting. My proudest accomplishment: Being signed on as a Keracolor platform artist prior to Ž nishing cosmetology school. It was something I had dreamed about attempting during my career, so to be ofŽ cially signed on with a company was a major accomplishment. I look up to: Garrett Roach (@garrettkenroach). We met as platform artists for Keracolor and instantly became great friends. Plus, he's an incredible artist and is always willing to share career as well as life advice. My best color tip: Try enzyme-based developers for blonding instead of peroxide developers. You'll get a lot of lift with a lot of protection. My favorite color trend/technique right now: I've just recently become obsessed with "teasy-lites." @kayleesmileyhair
