blonde pastel

There are lots of ways to wear the pastel trend that don’t involve a full head of carnation pink, a la Nicole Richie. Pale silvery white blonde accented with hidden panels of pink or purple provides an understated version of the trend. This unique and subtle color is easy to wear. Get the formula and application tips in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
