OLAPLEX + Chad Kenyon – A Match Made in Hair Health Heaven 



Want to know who was into the vivids before it was a thing? Say hello to Chad Kenyon. At four years old, he used nail polish and eyeliners to give Barbies their dream hair-do. 

Chad’s journey to success took root in Beverly Hills where he built his career one business card at a time. Today, he’s known for his Colormelt® technique– a blend of balayage mastery and the Chad Kenyon artistic flair, leaving each client with hair that’s as healthy as it is stunning. 

Chad’s love for hair is undeniable and his hustle even more so. All stylists and clients can appreciate his method of in-depth client consultations to make sure there’s a solid game plan that leaves everyone in love.

“Hard work is the most important thing to keep in mind. Being relentless, being consistent, and then comes social media. But without the hard work and the dedication and the love for the art, it’s hard to go anywhere.”

With Chad’s signature Colormelt® look, he has clients flying from around the country for his transformative work. In this episode, he shares with us how his signature look came to be, his essential OLAPLEX techniques and his experiences working with celebrity clients for red-carpet moments. 

Ten years ago, Chad joined forces with OLAPLEX, leveraging their innovative products to elevate his artistry. OLAPLEX has brought Chad’s work to another level, perfectly suiting his number one priority of maintaining healthy, beautiful colored hair.

“OLAPLEX allows me to push the boundaries, it rebuilds all the broken disulfide bonds which gives me a stronger canvas on which to paint and therefore see results on. I look at my old work from over ten years ago and it just wasn’t up to par to what I’m doing now.”

Chad’s ability to customize hair to every detail the client wants, all while keeping their hair looking beautifully healthy, is a topic we could discuss for days on end. And, this podcast ends with a very sneak peek into what’s to come in the innovative world of OLAPLEX.
