After my first few weeks attending the L’Oreal colour specialist degree course I am starting to look at hair colouring in a whole new light.

Each of us has our own natural hair tone that determines how colour will react and reflect, taking into consideration the distribution of pigment can make a real difference to colour placement.

It’s fascinating to learn how expert colour diagnosis leads to the perfect colour placement to give the best results. I loved the creative toning we did with more playful colours in palest pink, lavender and blues to give pre-lightened hair a new look. I also looked at colour placement using a ribbon technique to create subtle, sophisticated tones to give my model an individual look.

Looking forward to the next step in my course, each week there is something new to learn. I will post another blog soon.
