How To Do A Steel And Pastel Pigment Hair Colour

With Andreas Kurkowitz
Duration23 minutes
Skill levelAdvanced


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.
