Ever since I’ve lightened my hair I’ve been carving for a nice chartreuse shaded piece. Read a long time ago a nice article about how this color is very hard to handle and wear and got this thing on my mind about how I should get a fabulous piece in this color to try to style it.

Similarly chartreuse yellow is a yellow color mixed with a small amount of green that was named because of its resemblance to the color of one of the French liqueurs called yellow chartreuse, introduced in 1838.
The term chartreuse was first used to refer to “a pale apple-green” in 1884
