Outline Water Shadows Pastel Hair Colour

With Jo McKay
Duration19 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Jo McKay’s creative hair colouring process uses an oval shape through the top area to which she adds a soft raspberry pastel. She then works the left hand border section, with a soft mushroom shadow outlining the fringe sweeping section.

Finally Jo works the right hand border with a pastel light violet blue softened with natural tones to achieve an effortless melt of pastel watercolours with a defining shadow effect through the sweeping fringe to perfectly compliment the haircut by Bastian Casaretto.
