- A technique using dark and light tones to accentuate shadow and depth on the face.
- If your face is round or square you can colour areas to specifically elongate or create a more oval shape. It can also work to shrink your forehead or define your cheekbones.
- A lot of consideration is taken into which tones work best for you and how much colour placed around the face to achieve the best results.
Light pieces are woven around the jawline and ears to soften the bottom half of the face. By mixing fine light tones with depth at the roots a more oval shape can be created.
Multi-tonal layers of light and dark are applied to all corners of the face shape, around the jawline and temples. This softens any hard lines and creates depth and texture.
Deeper tones are applied to the root along the parting merging into lighter pieces weaved from above the ears to the ends of the hair. This will create an illusion of cutting off the face to create a slimmer and shorter shape.
Ligher tones of colour are applied around the hairline from ear to ear to elongate the face and add brightness. Darker tones are applied to the underneath of the ears and the lower ends of the hair around the face to give the face shape more of a point.
Not the only shape that suits most styles and colour but it is seen as the most desireable – all most the hourglass figure of face shapes. A completely bespoke colouring scheme can be created to add in depth thickening texture and shine.
