While Vanessa works well with all hair colors, her specialty are blondes “I am very good at blonding. Platinum blonde is really in right now and so it had been fun getting people to that color while sometimes pushing the limits with getting people outside of their color comfort zone.” Vanessa also specializes in extensions. Most people want extensions for length, style, or volume, but she really encourages people to get extensions for color “with blonding, sometimes we don’t realize that people have in blonde extensions to make them blonder.
