Color How-To: Chocolate Raspberry

Red hair is having a well-deserved moment in the spotlight (seriously, just look at the #redhair hashtag on Instagram). Arguably the best part about the haircolor is that it comes in all different shapes and sizes, and there are enough variations to suit anyone's fancy. 

For example, take chocolate raspberry, a delectable blend of colors named and created by San Antonio hairstylist Brittany Banda (@texasbalayage). Ideal for clients who aren't ready to fully commit to red, the color combo mixes reds and browns for the perfect warm shade.
