Jo McKay's colouring tutorial begins with a perimeter base colour using a basic tint application, and includes a base colour and high lift on the ends for an amalgam of oyster and caramel tones. The result is a beautiful colour melt to perfectly compliment the disconnected elements and defined base shape of the haircut.
