California Dreaming Desert Rose Gold Formula

Desert Rose Gold Formula

The new California Dreaming collection from Paul Mitchell took inspiration from the landscape and lifestyle to create three iconic looks: Palm Springs, Big Sur and Malibu.

Mimicking the desert sunset, the Palm Springs hair colour features creamy yellow, lustrous rose gold and flamingo pink.
