Victor Piccolotto’s hair colouring tutorial is a two-tone base of cool mushroom and silver blonde with an accent of lemon and grey tones to enhance and lend vibrancy to the movement in the haircut using semi-permanent colour. Vic uses a number of techniques to achieve the result, including back to back foils and slicing and teaches important lessons on colour and foil placement.
In lesson 2, Romy Jugg demonstrates a combination of warm blonde tones. The video includes advice on colour palette, placement and diagonal sectioning. The final result is an amalgam of soft tones of tangerine, coral, mink and champagne, perfect for the festival season and summer holiday spirit.
Aveda's European Education Specialist in Colour, Jo McKay presents a creative colouring process using an oval shape through the top using a soft raspberry pastel, followed by a soft mushroom shadow outlining the fringe sweeping section. Jo completes the look with a pastel light violet blue softened with natural tones to achieve a subtle melt of pastel watercolours with a defining shadow effect through the sweeping fringe.
Creative Colour Director for La Biosthetique, Andrea Bennett’s tutorial demonstrates a creative shadow outline colour application using zig-zagged slices with advice on colour choice and how to use diffusion for colour. The result is an on trend pastel blonde infused with a melt of denim blue colours for a fun and upbeat statement hairstyle.
Charmaine Piche completes the pastel blondes course with a colouring tutorial with Pure Veil colour technique, using slicing techniques to enhance colour placement in the fringe. Charmaine also uses weaving techniques to avoid hard lines in the crown. Charmaine uses a high lift tint to place the base colour and a V-shaped section in the fringe area. The end result is a soft blend of copper tones to complement skin tone and hair shape.
