A photo posted by (@behindthechair_com) on

Winter goes hand-in-hand with dark and dreary days, which is exactly why we need fashion colors to add some life to the season! If your client is asking for a specific shade of pink, it can be hard to figure out which mix of colors will achieve the exact color she desires. But, if she's asking for a true bubblegum pink, look no further than this "think pink" color formula from Kelly McCormick (@kellymccormickhair), a stylist at Salon 202 in Howell, N.J. Get the how-to!
