Tracy Hayes' colouring tutorial is a seamless toned blend between a rich smooth marmalade with the fringe areas tipped in a velvet orange. The combination sits vividly with Tim Hartley's bow fringe elements. 

Tracy demonstrates the line and sectioning of the pre-lightened area and chooses a smooth Marmalade for the base colour. She then sections with clear and thin pre-lightened slices in a four part section set back from the fringe area to lay with the same tone but formulated to a stronger intensity.

The result is a stunning transformative play on bold orange tones, rich and youthful and a perfect compliment to the classic shape.
