Neopolitan Slush with Blush: From Old Blonde to Black Bomb

Anne Moratto | January 6, 2015 | 10:10 AM

Anastasia Amico's inspiration for this look is the Chicago winter snow. "It goes from a pretty white into a deep, dark slush!" says Amico, JAAD Artistic Color Director.  "This also resembles Neapolitan ice cream! Delishhhh! So I decided to allow a color-melt pink strip. Ironically, when we left our building there was a snowstorm outside! "

"This client came in with very brassy, yellow and orange tones throughout her hair," says Austin Senior. "She was all levels 8 and 9 with about 5 inches of her natural level 7 regrowth. Her goal was a very cool platinum blonde with no silver and a shadow root slightly darker/cooler than her natural level." Here Senior shares the details for this makeover.
