Colours Used
  • The organic pixel technique is a very visual technique combining sharp, graphic lines and colour gradings. The positioning of the pixels depends strongly on the haircut, therefore shape and length need to be considered before colouring



  • Start creating pixels at the front, taking very fine horizontal slices
  • Apply the lightener with a very precise line at the bottom of the pixel by using the Schwarzkopf Professional Silicone Brush whilst creating a soft grading towards the upper end of the pixel by using a normal Schwarzkopf Professional tint brush


  • Pixels should be slightly staggered and overlapped in each slice (similar to a brick wall pattern) to reinforce the pixel effect
  • Work your way through the front still using the lightener only, layering and fixing slices on transparent foil with hairspray as you go

Pixel Effect Colours


Pixel Effect Colours
  • Section the pre-lightened hair into six horizontal sections working backwards through the parting
  • Colours 1, 3, 4 and 5 should be alternated onto the pre-lightened base to achieve a balanced end result; always check your technique visually from section to section to ensure the desired balance of shades
  • Start colouring on one side, at the front of the hairline, applying one colour to the pre-lightened pixels in each section
  • Work your way through each of the sections (alternating colours); working like this means that each of the six sections will be subdivided into fine back to back slices
  • Develop all colours according to appropriate timings
  • Rinse, then shampoo the hair with FIBREPLEX Shampoo and treat with FIBREPLEX N°2 Bond Sealer to create new bonds within the hair fibre for noticeable strength, suppleness and shine
