How-To: Pink Pixie Base Blend

When BTC reached out to Doug and Stevie Theoharis of Hugo Salon in Kensington, MD to ask if they could recreate one of their styles, we were completely floored to see an email in our inbox two hours later. They leaped at the opportunity to be featured, called in a favor from a friend and recreated this style, making sure to snap a photo of each step!


When asked why they wasted no time, the answer was simple: within one day of reposting the original style on our Instagram, Doug saw his books fill up and his Instagram activity go through the roof! That is what we love to see here at BTC—we live to showcase your works of art! So thank you to Doug, Stevie and their model for recreating this asymmetrical pink pixie base blend
