Amanda George will definitely give you the royal (or ROIL, as it were) treatment at her haute Beverly Hills salon, ROIL.  Her golden girls have included everyone from Charlize Theron and Victoria Beckham to Kate Hudson and Jenny McCarthy. Amanda moved to Los Angeles from Great Britain in the 1990s, where her signature technique and approach made her one of the best-kept secrets in hair. In 2005, she opened her own namesake salon in Beverly Hills, and in 2010 she created her own brand Neil George Hair Care. ROIL is the culmination of her multi-decade career—a combination of products, salons, and lifestyles around the world, embodying all the best that Amanda represents. Says George, “What makes my blondes different Is my technique of being able to multi layer five to sxi different shades at once and lightening the tips at the same time overall makes a really natural blonde. I usually add a faceframe right at the end in another step to really pop the color out, most blonde  clients want the hair around their face to literally frame their features…. for better!”

Riawna Capri colors some of the hottest talent in Hollywood, including Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose, Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Hough, Selan Gomez and Hillary Duff, as well as Kate Hudson, Goldie Hawn, Steven Tyler, Kristin Cavallari, Sarah Hyland and Jessica Simpson. HER blondes are different, says Capri, for three reasons:

  1. I do it the healthy way, if it’s not healthy then I won’t do it. If hair is not healthy then it isn’t pretty! I won’t fry or compromise the hair. I use Olaplex to push the limits of blonde hair.
  2. Each client goes home with a care package to help maintain the brightness. This package includes a Raindrops shower filtration system that traps impurities and keeps the hair from getting dull and also includes a hair mask, leave-in conditioner and purple shampoo.
  3. I like to do sandy neutral/beige blondes. I like the natural, beachy, and effortless look. I tend to stay away from yellow and golds, I love the perfect little girl or surfer look!

NEGIN ZAN OF BENJAMIN WITH NEGIN ZAND

NZ

All ages visit Negin Zand at her hip West Hollywood salon, Benjamin with Negin Zand, including the likes of Gigi Hadid, Jane Fonda and Diane Lane. She began her career in Australia, where she first realized her interest for color development. In 1991, the Iran native relocated to Los Angeles to fortify her talent for capturing the natural effect of sunlight upon hair. Negin was accepted into famed hairdresser Christophe’s salon in Beverly Hills before moving into a partnership with Benjamin Mohapi, where she performs her signature balayage on the daily. Says Zand, “It is different because I do balayage, not foils. Most people think balayage needs to be really chunky at the roots, but I feather it very gently at the root and make it thicker towards the bottom. I don’t like it with too many stripes, that’s why I don’t use foils. Most people think balayage is more damaging to the hair, but it is all about what bleach and what volume peroxide you use and also keeping an eye on it so it doesn’t over process.”

SULEKAH HILTON OF SALLY HERSHBERGER LOS ANGELES

Sulekha2017nbg72ppi

To Sulekah Hilton, color is an artform. Hilton (no relation) painstakingly paints each strand on to the hair and watches it blossom into the perfect blonde with almost a military precision at her longtime digs, Sally Hershberger‘s L.A. salon, which is frequented by celebrities such as Meg Ryan, John Mayer, Jimmy Fallon and Tom Cruise. But then, always knew she would be a colorist. As a child, she fondly remembers playing with color bottles in the bath and grew up experimenting on her friend’s hair. When it came time for her to pick a career, there was no doubt in her mind that she needed to pursue one in the haircare industry. In 2002, Sulekha went to work at the Sally Hershberger at John Frieda Salon. There she trained with Johnathan Gale and Lorri Goddard who gave her the foundation to master both the foiling and balayage highlighting techniques. Says Hilton, “My rule of thumb with blondes is to take it slow. It is safer for the hair to build up the blonde slowly rather than blast it to uber-blonde brightness. My first priority is the hair’s integrity. I’ve learned over the years how to say no. I still struggle with it because I want to please but I’d rather put my foot down than negatively effect the hair.”
