Colour Correction 3 - Lightening Dark Hair Colour

With Tracy Hayes
Duration18 minutes
Skill levelAdvanced


Tracy Hayes’colouring tutorial tackles a common colour correction problem - heavily tinted black on hair with a very small re-growth and the client wanting to go for a much softer velvety brown. This tutorial guides you through the bleach foil process to pre-lighten the hair, then how to apply a base colour to blend and fuse the colours together.

This tutorial should be used in in association with Parts 1, 2 and 4, which cover pre-pigmentation, grey hair with faded tints on the ends and grown out bleach with a large area of regrowth.

For these colour techniques Tracy uses a training head that many colour houses also use to teach their students. The block has been broken up into four segments. On each segment Tracy demonstrate a different technique for colour correction.
