Circular Sections With Graduated Colour Tutorial

With Tracey Sajno
Duration25 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Tracey Sarno's hair colouring tutorial works with the movement and over-directed graduation of Graham Oglesby's haircut with simple circular sections. Tracey begins with pre-pigmentation, because her intended base colour is a deeper level than the natural colour. She then uses a slicing technique with a black veil to outline, followed by a warm blonde tone to enhance the disconnection. The result is a dramatic colour fusion reflecting the modern, youthful attitude of the haircut.

Watch the accompanying haircut video tutorial here.

In addition to the video, members can also find below a step by step guide that takes you through the whole process of doing circular sections with graduated colour hair.
