"If you want to make “super shiny hair” here is how I (Kaly) do it. I color with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and the complete list of colors and some other details you can find on the Spectrum Noit Blog. We‘ll color a funny pinkish-red hair with 3 shades of “pale pinks” and 3 shades of “dark reds” to this lovely detail from Lady with Antique Bicycle.
Firstly I cover almost the entire hair with the lightest color and leave a white space where the highlight should be (*).
Next steps are to apply two layers of darker pinks. With every layer I cover a little bit less than the lighter color before.
After that I switch to the darkest of the color combination and I put just tiny strokes in the spaces where the most shadowed regions should be. Then I overlay with the lighter shades of red.
At this point we have all our colors in and a distinctive difference between “pinks” and “reds”. For blending it I use the “darkest off the lights” and I cover the middle region.
If you are satisfied with the result you can live it like that, but I tend to go back and forth with “lights” and “darks” in overlapping layers until it looks perfect. Then we color the braids, the face and clothes and we have a sweet girl with super shinny hair.
And if you want the things even funnier I added my favorite color combinations for all kinds of non-traditional hairs on this chart that you can download from here.

Today we are starting with a new program her at MilkCoffee headquarters. As we are going to show you many different ways of how to colour hair and more.....
I will start this fun event with how I colour different colours of hair with pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I printed my samples on Stamplinen from Joycrafts. The pencils that I use are Derwent colour soft- Koh I Noor- PolyChromo's by Faber Castel and Prismacolor pencils. I always start with the darkest colour and add lighter next then I blend it together with the odorless mineral spirit (sansodor). The fun part about colouring on stamplinen is that you see texture coming thru, or should I say I love that hahaha.
Here are the list of colours I used for each hair...
Kin = Koh I Noor
PC = Prismacolours
DCS= Derwent colour soft
Hair colours are dark to light
