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! "
