The Gherkin - Blonde, caramel and and brown tones

With Bee Dixon
Duration6 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Inspired by London’s landmark Gherkin skyscraper, Bee Dixon’s creative hair colouring tutorial embraces the texture of the hair and enhances the disconnecting lengths, framing the natural features with a soft caramel, broken up by a dark rich brown.

It’s commercial, sexy, and gives you a twist for your blonde lovers!

The tutorial incorporates a range of techniques including back to back foils and foil sectioning, colour placement sectioning, multi-colour block tinting, roots to ends application and slice technique.

Watch the accompanying hair cutting video tutorial by Lee Stafford.
