Shadow and Light Hair Colour Tutorial

With Louise Reeves
Duration27 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Louise Reeves’ salon creative tutorial is a technique based on the concept of shadow and light, which is the effect of dark and light colours on framing suitability.

Louise works throughout the head with the three mix of colours, alternating with each section to achieve a fusion of dark chocolate, maple and honey reflections. The result is a play on shadow and light dancing through the contours of the haircut; with flashes of light tones to accentuate the elongated areas.
