Hair How-To: Feminine Active Catwalk Edutorial – Pernilla

The Feminine Active trend from Essential Looks 1:2019 is all about gently undone looks with genderless, yet feminine finishes; think street style where fashion goes from the sidewalk to the catwalk and back again.

The Key Feminine Active Catwalk Look has been cut by Schwarzkopf Professional Editorial Stylist Tyler Johnston and coloured by Colour Experimentalist Edoardo Paludo. The final look is a shorter style, coloured an icy IGORA ROYAL blonde with a modern colour edge using BOLD COLOR WASHES in BLUE.

To recreate this cool colour look, watch our edutorial video featuring Edoardo Paludo below or follow the pictorial steps:

Here Colour Experimentalist Edoardo Paludo details the #INANDOUT colour technique to create this totally wearable, modern colour:

  • After sectioning the hair as detailed, Edoardo works through the sections using the #INANDOUT technique; he starts at the back of the head creating back-to-back slices, alternating between colour 1 and colour 2
  • Colour 3 is then applied towards the top of the back-to-back slices, at the front of the head. This technique helps to add colour depth and a more natural, undone colour effect
  • After completing the back-to-back slices around the head, Edoardo applies colour 4 to the roots. For a modern colour twist colour 5 is then creatively applied freehand to areas within the hair
