Pearl Blonde Ombre Hair Colour Tutorial

With Bruno Elorrioroz
Duration31 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Bruno Elorrioroz’s ombre colouring tutorial starts with a process to unify the model's overall previously bleached hair. Bruno uses a natural light blonde using a basic application with a very natural champagne beige pearl blonde.

He adds weaved low lights around the perimeter and beneath the fringe to create texture. The foil placement follows the pattern of a 1920s Marcel wave to create a cascading texture and adds a cooler feel to the pink and creamy blonde tones.

On the top he applies a semi permanent colour to the roots / regrowth, between foils on one side of the section. This brings depth but avoids the heavy fake roots look, giving a soft but deeper transparency to the root area combined with a natural champagne beige and pearl blonde glow to the ends. The result is fresh, girly and fun.
