Colours for Mid Brown, Dark Blonde & Blonde Hair with Spectrum Noirs

Another Spectrum Noir question I have been asked a number of times is “What colours do you use for hair” so here are the colours for Mid Brown, Dark Blonde and Blonde hair

On all of these I have started with the darkest first, but these colours should work whatever way you prefer to colour, a little tip for you that I find helps me when I am trying to find colour combos for whatever pens I use, stamp out or print 2 of the images you are working on use one for practise and when you are happy colour the final image, it looks quite funny when you have an image with rainbow coloured hair but this works for me, I then file the image I used for practise with a note of the colours in my colouring folder.

Hope this helps, if there is anything else I can help with let me know.  I will be back later with a card.

Really helpful Jacqui, I have a similar chart for copics but this helps as I am (slowly) going to get the spectrums too! I used the speccies in my copic airbrush and apart from opening the plastic grip by about 1mm they work really well and give excellent coverage as to me, they seem wetter than copics (which I love anyway!)I am spraying roses at the moment and the results are fab :)
