social media feeds rocking decadent darks. Chocolate ombre—especially how it
looks on Priyanka Chopra or Selma Hayek—only sweetens the deal.
If sugar isn’t your clients’ thing, remind them: you can always go darker! Daring?
Perhaps, but it is genius to make an iconic statement by going blacker. That glossy
sheen will shimmer like the northern lights on a snowy night. If you want to draw
