Paired with edgy hair piercings, the look goes from romantic to tough, adding a fun twist to the pastel hair trend and providing all the inspiration your client needs for the upcoming summer season.

To recreate Christina's lilac locks, PRAVANA Stylist Jamie Muniz put together the following formula using ChromaSilk Express Tones and VIVIDS for long-lasting, beautiful color that your clients will love!
