Charmaine Piche’s advanced tutorial guides you through a graduated colour technique using back to back slices to create a gradient of colour from dark to light. The technique is worked in three parts for ease and cleanliness with four colours, ranging from depth of level 10 to 7 and tones of red, orange and ash. These colours are arranged in three areas in different patterns to achieve a subtle gradient of colours. The result is a seamless transition from a warm and vibrant red to blonde, which defines and enhances the haircut’s graduation and complexity of lengths.
