Gradated Color Effect from DCI Education

This twist on traditional global color placement, from DCI Education, features an urban update with a gradated effect. Lighter color placed towards the perimeter is juxtaposed against the flash of rich interior color, drawing the attention to the eyes and the textured edges of the haircut. It’s the perfect technique to introduce color variation to an all-over high-lift blonde color client.
