You know those amazing cuts and colors that make you stop and go, "Oh my gosh, I have to know—who does her hair?!"? Well, take a look at Kristin Chenoweth, who's starring in the fall show Pushing Daisies. I love this modern cut, and the depth of the color is beautiful. The man behind Kristin's new hue is Carlos Rodriguez of Privé Salon in Los Angeles. With 23 years in the business, he knows how to create contemporary, beautiful color. Along with coloring Kristin's hair, he's worked with Paulina Rubio, Kim Raver (you know, Audrey from 24), Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster.
I spoke with Carlos this week, and he was nice enough to share the details of Kristin's hair color—along with his thoughts on hair trends for fall. There's a wealth of expert information, so read on!
I love Kristin’s color—it looks really fresh and contemporary. Did you come up with the idea for the color, or did she?
It was a co-collaboration. We wanted to create a current, modern feel and look to the hair, while keeping in mind her new role. We started with a blonde base. I wanted to warm it up by using caramel and honey tones to create dimension. Then I went back in and painted some face-framing highlights in baby blonde tones. They draw out Kristin’s beautiful blue eyes. It shows off the shape of the cut, too.
