• Kelly Bensimon on her colorist, Bradley Irion: “When I met Bradley, he said, your hair has to be natural. So he literally colored my base and let my natural hair color come through. People are constantly coming up to me and touching my hair. That’s what Bradley gave me ... this touchable, gorgeous hair that’s real. He even cuts my dog’s hair.” [StyleWatch/People]
