Skill levelFoundation


Tracy Hayes’ colouring tutorial features a classic foil highlighting technique to produce a perfect, natural iridescent colour created using three tones of blonde and gold.

Tracy uses permanent colour and achieves the look by combining strategic colour placement sectioning with slice and weaving techniques.

The result is a pretty, healthy and understated finish to lift the blondes and leave the client glowing.
