Tracy Hayes’ head block colouring tutorial demonstrates a classic foil placement of half-head straight-up highlights. This technique converts easily into a full-head of foil highlights. Tracy's detailed explanation guides you through the correct pattern placement for successful results every time.

This tutorial is performed using a hairdressers training head, which can be used to safely master the techniques prior to transferring to a live model or client.
