Step-by-Step: Blush Blonde

(How-To: Chi)

Summer is in full swing, and clients are all about going lighter and brighter for the warmer months. For your adventurous clients who still appreciate a hint of subtlety, blush blonde is the perfection option. Combining shades of pink and peach, we predict blush blonde to be one of the hottest shades of the season. Better yet, we think it's the perfect transition color for cooler months, too!
