Andreas Kurkowitz's colouring tutorial uses a base of cyclamen and a combination of silver, grey and eau de nil panels to accentuate the internal shape of the haircut. The result is a fusion of glassy pastel and steel tones of cyclamen, Eau de Nil, violet and silver grey to perfectly compliment the freehand interior, sweeping fringe and veil of diffused length of the haircut.

Members can also find below our step by step guide that covers the whole process of this steel and pastel pigment colouring.
