Bee Dixon’s hair colouring technique is a classic convertible colour with a calculated mix of two tone purple shades set against a rich dark palette.

Prior to applying the permanent colour, Bee begins with a lightener. Throughout the video Bee demonstrates adding block colour, colour placement sectioning, foil sectioning roots to ends application and slice technique.

The result is a convertible, switchable colour complimenting natural deep tones - a salon essential.

Watch Stacey Broughton’s accompanying short graduated haircut tutorial to learn how to achieve the haircut.
