First, get the hair

He recommends people t not o go with the change before their have some experience with a platinum blonde wig. It is a big change, for both their hair and overall look, so it is important for you to get used with how you will look. According to your skin tone you will have to choose the level of platinum your hair should be, because it is crucial it to be the right one for your eye colour and skin. The hair is the one that will make or break your Yeezy look.
First, and most important DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME!!! Platinum blonde is not the type of colour you obtain at home with products purchased from your local store, or worse from an online store. Only a professional can achieve the right platinum level that will complement your features and they will make sure it will not get damaged.
