Kaleidoscope: Anthony Grant Brings Color To Life with Matrix Haircare

Renowned and award-winning stylist Anthony Grant brings us his latest collection, Kaleidoscope, a stunning adventure in color and texture. As a long time master of color using Matrix Haircare, it’s no surprise that this newest collection features bold and vibrant hues.

Anthony has spent the last 27 years honing his craft. Now as a member of the Jamie Stevens Salon team, he’s had a chance to truly blossom and share his creative vision with the world. His large and loyal clientele includes high profile names such as award-winning Broadway star Patina Miller, who often fly him internationally to help with hair on sets. Along with his celebrity work, he has contributed to London, Milan, Paris, New York and South African fashion weeks. Thanks to his talented and creative styling he’s also worked with designers like Valentino, Versace, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Narciso Rodriguez, Gareth Pugh, and Stella McCartney.

“My inspiration for this collection started when looking through a kaleidoscope and visualizing the wide spectrum of colors, I created my own unique color palette,” Grant explains. “Working on natural Afro hair has enabled me to introduce vibrant color and set new trends. It’s about girls who have an alter ego, having the confidence to express themselves through their hair using strong, bold colors, introducing the illusion of texture & movement. I infused colors, textures to my kaleidoscope collection, creating a fresh new look with an editorial vibe. These girls don’t follow trends, they dictate them.”
