Formulating customised brights or natural-looking results for red and copper clients whilst working behind the salon chair (with any professional hair colour brand) just got a whole lot easier with my proven Hair Painting Redheads 5-6-7-8 system.

Let me guess…

You are currently struggling with painting reds and coppers in the salon

There are 5 huge mistakes I see when people try to paint reds and coppers. They are;

  1. Hot roots or glowing colour on the scalp
  2.  Banding and uneven patches of colour from roots to tips
  3.  Hair that looks artificially dyed which doesn’t suit the client's complexion or match their inspiration photos or suit their rebooking schedule
  4. The most common mistakes that Hairdressers make with Grey Coverage for Redheads, is inconsistent banding and fluorescent roots without 100% coverage
  5.  Flat copper or red colours that lack dimension, variation and texture

let me ask you?


How would your salon business be different if you could advertise you’re a Red Hair Expert?

Some salons believe their location will not have any red requests, but in fact, it’s because they are not offering reds they are not getting these requests. Redheads need a great hairdresser (like you!)


can you imagine formulating every warm hair colour request with artistry and confidence?

Hair Painting for Redheads is a misunderstood niche area of hairdressing. If  you are avoiding painting reds or coppers to avoid making mistakes it's time to remove your fear!



how would it feel to transform into an expert hair painter for redheads?

This program is designed to support your transformation from Artist to Expert. You will have a strong understanding of advanced colour theory and techniques necessary when hair painting redheads.

I've been there, too…

red hair colours are challenging

I am not sure about you, but I have accidentally dyed clients hair very bright at the roots in the past and needed to correct my own colours (whilst trying to smile and pretend everything was fine with my clients). I used to get some Reds gorgeous and others looked like patchy Blueberry packet dyes… until I studied Colour Theory for 3 years at Art School, and I flipped the techniques from art school to suit salon life.

Let me remove your fear of hair painting redheads by teaching you my unique approach to Creative Colour Theory so that your Redhead new booking requests skyrocket in your salon!

I want to help you see the same
success I did.

Frustrated & overwhelmed with all the options in your colour chart confusing you
