Andreas Kurkowitz's colour tutorial begins by pre lightening the hair to a blonde base to provide a clean palette and applying a dusty purple base. Then, Andreas applies a combination of subtle orange copper, violet and grey tones through the top.

The final result references a vintage form refreshed by the use of a finite current palette.
