Ep. 315 – The Power of “Midlights,” Why Demi-Colour Is Your New BFF & The Hottest 2024 Hair Colour Trends We’re About to See Everywhere With Celebrity Hair Colourist Matt Rez

January 10, 2024

New year, new hair colour? Here to usher in your best era yet, we’re welcoming Matt Rez, the global celebrity hair colour ambassador for Moroccanoil who has worked with Adele, Hailey Bieber, Chrissy Teigen, Kendall Jenner and many more. 

Matt fills us in on what’s happening in hair colour for 2024, like is “cowboy copper” still a thing? How about balayage? Plus, we get the hair pro’s best tips for transitioning to grey, how to come back from over-blonding and why demi-permanent cream colour is his favourite discovery that we all need to know about.

Plus, you’ll learn about:

  • Matt’s signature “midlights” technique and why this sister to highlights and lowlights could be the missing link in your perfect hair colour
  • How your eye colour might inform your ideal hair hue
  • The under-the-radar, Japanese hair treatment he swears does wonders on his A-List clientele (Yes, you can find it at Sephora!)
  • The one supermarket hair hack he *would* recommend, that will cost you just pennies 
  • How to break up with a hair colourist the right way
  • The single hair trend that Matt predicts is making a big comeback in 2024, and (surprise!) you can do it at home
