Soft Velvet Hair Colouring Video

With Charmaine Piche
Duration22 minutes
Skill levelAdvanced


Charmaine Piche’s tutorial is a soft and luxurious velvet colour beginning with a pre-lightened section running parallel to the parting. A purple toned base colour is then added to the model's remaining hair using a basic tint technique. Charmaine then applies three alternating colours, blue violet, violet cyclamen and violet in the pre-lightened top section using slices and ensuring even coverage and saturation.

The final result is a velvety purple hue using close complimentary colours for a luxurious finish amd forms part of the Fitz collection from Mazella&Palmer.
