Neon Hair Battle: Sunset Gladiator

Megan Schipani (@shmeggsandbaconn) brought her A-game to LA as one of the five finalists in the Kenra Professional 2017 Neon Hair Battle, and it was an epic weekend-long neon throwdown. Megan went for a dramatic look by toning with metallics before applying her creative and neon shades. Find out how she achieved this Sunset Gladiator!
