Another great day in my career welcoming the most beautiful and elegant talk show host and entertainer @sharonosbourne for a complete transformation. Sharon has 100% white hair and she was coloring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years. she explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation long time ago but every time she attempts it ends up with a disaster. Sharon was very tired of coloring her hair once a week and she was obligated to since she is on tv almost every day hosting her popular tv show @thetalkcbs . I didn’t promise Sharen anything but I told her I will try my best, it took me a total of 8 hours from start to finish to get her to a platinum blonde so she doesn’t have to be committed to coloring her hair once a week anymore. I had great time spending my day off with this gorgeous, humble, and sweet soul. ____________________________________________ Products used in this transformation.

She spent 8 hours in the salon where she ditched her signature red hair for a platinum white look in the hopes that the new look will not require weekly dyeing.

Explaining her decision on The Talk, Sharon said she is fed-up with going and having her hair dyed. The decision also led her to question why she was trying to be something she’s not, so she ultimately decided to embrace her true self.
