For Malibu C artist Savannah Milner (@blondinggenie), utilizing the brand to boost her color results is a no-brainer. “For big color changes I must have my Malibu C Wellness Remedies—which enhance any color change—and Salon Scale,” she says. “I measure everything with my Salon Scale, which tells me how much product I’m using per client—including the markup for backbar tools. It holds on to all formulas and client information, including inventory!”

Then, I shampooed with Hydrate Color Wellness Shampoo—infused with color-lock technology—and finished with all three of our Concentr8 mixers for protein, moisture and shine. I also employed Concentr8 Klay; it basically works to encapsulate the colors so you can freehand and not have to worry about bleeding.” Check out Milner’s stunning results here, and to learn more about Malibu C, log on to and follow the brand @malibucpro.
