Celebrity Colorist Corey Powell Creates Signature Looks for the Upcoming HBO Drama, "True Detective"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2013) - Known as an expert in beauty, as well as a consultant and colorist on such films as Walk the Line, Little Miss Sunshine, and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, Hollywood hair guru Corey Powell ( has once again brought 30 years of hair coloring expertise to the set of the upcoming HBO crime drama, True Detective.

As the series' go-to hair colorist, Corey provided the distinctive looks for several of the show's actresses including Michelle Monaghan (Source Code, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol), Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson), Azure Parsons (2 Guns) and Alyshia Ochse (Parker).

"One of the most fun and creative challenges came from maintaining the ebbs and flows of each character's color to fit the style over the show's 17-year timeframe," says Corey. "There's nothing better than collaborating with the hairdressers, and talented actors on set."

True Detective isn't the only card that Corey Powell has up his sleeve. Sally Hershberger's top colorist has been painting Michelle Monaghan's tresses for two additional projects starring the actress, A Many Splintered Thing, and Better Living Through Chemistry, both films scheduled for release in 2014.

Corey has also recently served on the glam squad for Australian actress Margot Robbie, who is starring in the upcoming Martin Scorsese biopic, The Wolf of Wall Street, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and due in theaters December 25, 2013. See Corey's genius color on Margot in her new movie Focus, releasing in 2014, and in print where she is featured in Glamour Magazine's December issue and Vanity Fair's Hollywood issue on newsstands this February.
