If your client loves green, but isn’t ready for Katy Perry’s slime green color, try this soft, multidimensional seafoam green, courtesy of BTC Facebook Fan Alyssa Wiener from Stylin’ Salon in Norwalk, CT. Inspired by the ocean as well as the northern lights, Alyssa wanted to bring these earthy tones to life in a fun, unique way. Minty green and blue pastel shades melt together with vivid emerald and blue to create this sea-inspired hue!
