Charmaine Piche's colouring tutorial demonstrates a pivoting colour gradient technique which carefully places a lighter shade on the longer lengths of the haircut and gradually deepens to a deep base to reveal and accentuate the layers. The result is a striking spectrum of orange and reds pivoting through the front to accentuate the longer lengths and reveal the detail of the layering framed by a rich red base.
