TIGI Smokey Lavender Creative Toning Technique How-To

by Elizabeth Jakaitis | May 7, 2015

TIGI Educator Stephanie Senner introduces a freehand blending technique that creates soft tones of pale truffle and smoked lavender.

“As our clients’ skin complexions get warmer during spring and summer, we tend to cool down their hair to create more of a harmonious balance,” says Richy Kandasamy, TIGI U.S. technical director. “Pale, pastel tones like smokey lavender and iridescent violets are going to be the more dominant shades and tend to be quite flattering on most skin tones. Working with creative toning technique or stretching color technique will give those kind of harmonious color effects.”
