“When asking your colorist for something similar, you want to stress that you’re looking for a color melt look that starts more warm-toned at the root but transitions to ash on the ends,” Olivia Smalley, a colorist in South Florida, told Allure. “The key here is making sure there is a complete elimination of gold on those lighter ends, while maintaining gold on the roots.”
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
