This advanced hair colouring course covers a variety of ice-cream inspired shades producing soft, feminine and on-trend colours for female clients of all ages. Over the five lessons of the course, some of the best colourists working today will provide you with expert guidance on colour placement and tint selection to give you the ability to recreate the looks in your salon. The course begins with a tutorial from Creative Colour Director for La Biosthetique Andrea Bennett from Austria, then moves to Aveda’s Artistic Director and educator in London, Paris-born Bruno Elorrioroz’s beautiful melted balayage. Lesson three introduces two-time winner of the Colourist of the Year at the Shwarzkopf Hairdressing Awards in Germany, Andreas Kurkowitz. British colouring legend Tracy Hayes, Global Head of Technical Training for Fudge Professional presents lesson four, before one of London’s most in-demand colourists, Bee Dixon concludes the course in lesson five. On completion you can download, print and share an exclusive City & Guilds CPD Certificate of Recognition.
In lesson 1, Creative Colour Director for La Biosthetique Andrea Bennett demonstrates an intricately placed fusion of interlocking multi-coloured pastel shades of strawberry cream, peach apricot and lavender, balanced against a pastel beige base, applied with curved sections to emphasis the versatility of the haircut.
For lesson 2, Aveda’s Artistic Director in London Bruno Elorrioroz demonstrates how to do a multidimensional melted balayage technique. Within the hair colouring tutorial, Bruno provides essential advice on colour range, triangular placement and saturation. The end result is an understated melting of soft tones bringing a colourful twist to this modern classic technique.
In the third lesson, Andreas Kurkowitz uses a cyclamen base below a series of silver, grey and Eau de Nil panels, to accentuate the haircut’s internal shape. Andreas’s tutorial produces a fusion of glassy pastel and steel tones of cyclamen, Eau de Nil, violet and silver grey to add colour and movement to the freehand interior, sweeping fringe and veil of diffused length of the haircut.
Lesson 4 is presented by Global Head of Technical Training for Fudge Professional, Tracy Hayes. Her colouring tutorial teaches how to do a three tier colour application following the graduation of a Firefly haircut. Tracy builds on the colour with the first tier of soft charcoal grey, and the second a strong violet. For the final tier, Tracy applies a mixture of conditioner and violet pure pigment.
Bee Dixon presents the final lesson to conclude the course, demonstrating a classic technique with a twist, to complement the radical haircut. Bee takes a neutral tone as the key colour using a simple basic application, but uses an intimate knowledge of primary colours as accents to complement the skin and haircut. This advanced colour technique requires pre-bleaching.
