Half-Head Foil Highlighting Technique With Colour Balancing

With Tracey Hughes
Duration34 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Tracey Hughes’ colouring tutorial shows how to blend existing light colour with darker roots using diagonal sectioning with a half-head highlight application and an in-between demi-permanent colour to blend.

The final result is a unifying synthesis of colour grades and highlight placement for a natural coastline look for a warmer climate.

If you are a member of MHD, you can also download a guide that covers the essentials of this foil highlighting technique.
