Transform Your Men’s Hair Colouring Skills
It’s sad but true: men are often neglected when it comes to hair colour. So, this week we’re doing our bit to redress the balance by showcasing 5 intermediate-level colouring tutorials to help you transform your skills and offer your male clients the inspiration and service they deserve!
From the shine line to the half head of foils and flat matte blue green colour, our expert colourists – including Christiano Lanza, Charmaine Piche and Andreas Kurkowitz – offer pointers, insight and demonstrations to help you learn and embed new colouring techniques.
