Like fine wine, wisdom, and (gasp!) white hair, some things just get better with age.

Sharon Osbourne proved the latter to be true after recently debuting a dramatic white hair transformation. The 67-year-old co-host of The Talk on CBS sported her signature dark vibrant red hair for 18 years before the makeover done by Tustin, CA–based colorist and Jack Martin.

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.

Trained in Paris, Martin specializes in a spectrum of hair colors but most notably white, silver, and gray dye jobs, from the looks of his social media. Clients often travel from Ohio, Tennessee, Florida, and all over the world, for an appointment with Martin. In an Instagram post with a before-and-after photo of Osbourne, he noted the star had 100-percent white hair and previously colored it once a week. “She explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation a long time ago but every time she attempts it, [she] ends up with a disaster,” he wrote in the caption. 

To achieve the white color, Martin used Wella Blondor Multi Blonde Powder Lightener, Olaplex No. 1 and 2 (to aim to repair and prevent hair damage), and Pravana Zero Lift Color Activator with Framar color tools. 

The process took a total of eight hours from start to finish. The good news? This time around, the attempt was a success—Osbourne doesn’t have to make her weekly trips to the salon for color touch-ups thanks to her new white shade. “I had a great time spending my day off with this gorgeous, humble, and sweet soul,” Martin added. 

Earlier this month, Martin spent another seven hours with 82-year-old Jane Fonda to transform the actress’s hair to all-white as well just in time for the 2020 Oscars.

The ice hue may be trending now, but it couldn’t get any more classic.

I had the honor and the pleasure to transform the legendary actress @janefonda hair specially for the 2020 Oscar. Spending 7 hours with this amazing Hollywood star and witnessing her energy, beauty, strength and femininity was so inspiring. For straight 7 hours while I was working on her hair she was writing chapters in her due soon book, and memorizing her lines in the famous tv show Frankie and grace that she is shooting the 7th season now, answering emails and reading her newspapers plus communicating with me and her team with the sweetest, humblest soul, she made me feel ashamed to complain of being tired. This experience was extremely great and I will never forget this amazing day, thanks to the talented @jjhanousek and @deleonmakeup for nominated me to her. Formula: Jane had about 3 inches of her salt and pepper natural roots and the rest was a little tired warm golden blonde, her goal color was a silver icy blonde to surprise everyone at the 2020 Oscar presenting the final award winner for the movie of the year. I started the 7 hours process by giving miss Fonda a platinum card, by bleaching all her hair back to back by taking very thin sections in foils using @oligopro extra blonde with 20 vol and olaplex on the virgin hair and 10 vol with @olaplex on previously colored hair. Once I reached very pale blonde level 11 After 3 hours processing rinsed hair and did olaplex number 2 for 20 minutes, rinsed hair then prtone hair to cancel all the yellowish hue in the hair and prepare a solid white canvas by using @redken shade eq 1/2 oz 9B + 1/2 oz 10vv mixed with 3 once of clear (00) and double the total amount of processing solution for about 10 minutes, rinsed hair, towel dried and apply the final toner by @wellahairusa blondor 1/2 pale silver + 1/2 pale platinum mixed with 6 vol developer for 30 minutes, shampooed, conditioned. Hair felt amazingly healthy and Jane was extremely happy for getting her dream hair that took her a while to find a colorist that can do it perfectly in a very painless process. @modernsalon @behindthechair_com @american_salon #sliverhair #whitehair #platinumhair #oscars2020 #theoscars2020
