Christiano Lanza demonstrates a half head of foils using a double herringbone foiling technique and an application of toner. Christiano passes on expert tips on  placement, weight lines and colour palette within the tutorial. 

The final result is a coalescence of counteracting warm toffee and cool ink tones to release movement and texture and to provide definition and drama through the longer layered lengths of the hair.
