Platinum Blond: Gwen Stefani

Celebrity colorist Sharon Dorram of Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger says that Gwen’s platinum is perfect because there is no yellow residue, which can make this almost-white shade of blond look harsh. 

Cutler/Redken senior colorist Rachel Bodt adds, “It’s creamy and icy, but still striking.”
