Charmaine Piche's colour tutorial introduces the idea of pure veils of colour to enhance the perfect balance of round and square shapes by framing the dramatic fringe area with a veil of dark tone in a V-shaped section. Charmaine also places a further fine bleach panel, with simple back-to-back slices, worked with a hint of deep blue tone which doesn't overpower the fringe section. Finally, the secret detail of short areas and base colour are workedwith a warm dark tone, to produce a final result with an enriching fusion of warm tones with a powder blue to perfectly complement the underlining colours and the model's skin tones.
