Sugar Colour By Aimee Penco

Sugar Cubed’s award-winning senior colourist and salon manager, Aimee Penco introduces four new colouring techniques to change your hair colour game forever.

Similar to makeup, hair trends are constantly evolving and sometimes even overlapping. In keeping with the popular makeup trend of contouring and highlighting, each of Aimee’s colouring techniques can be used to compliment facial features such as the eyes and cheekbones.


This technique has the ability to completely alter face shapes by using light and dark tones to give hair shadow and depth. Features such as eyes and cheekbones will pop!


Following the same rules as you would when applying highlighter to the face, strobing aims to enhance your natural hair colour by introducing lighter pieces (baby-lights) surrounding the highest points of the face.

Dual Colouring

Dual colouring is bolder and more dramatic than traditional high and low lights, perfect for clients seeking a dramatic change


Shading creates depth and shine through the marbling of light and darker tones. This technique frames the face beautifully.

According to Aimee, all four techniques are all centered around ‘face-framing’ and flattering each client’s facial features.
Not only are these new techniques kind to the face, they’re also kind to your hair with no harsh pre-lightening involved. Each of the four techniques can be used on any hair type in order to transform your entire look.
