Chocolate Chip Mint

What better way to say hello to summer than with a mint chocolate chip-inspired color? This dreamy pastel creation comes to us from Erin BonneyHassell (@erin.boha_hair) of Boha Studio in Washington, North Carolina. Her model (read: best friend) frequently lets her experiment with her hair, so it’s safe to say Erin had a lot of fun with this one!

 

“The before picture is the result of a vivid color we did about a month ago that faded beautifully. The ends had completely faded out, but the midshaft and root color were still pretty vibrant, so I worked on only lifting that and rinsing one section at a time, so as not to overprocess her hair.”

 

Here’s Erin’s formula and how-to for gorgeous, mint perfection!
