Dimension is IN and clients everywhere are craving a rich, high-shine, multidimensional blend. So we had Larisa Love (@larisadoll) take over our Facebook Live where she demonstrated her go-to dimension technique—the fusion method!


Here’s how it works. The fusion method lets you blend three tones together—a base, a lowlight and a highlight—to create that beautiful, multi-tonal finish. The key to this method is alternating the application of your formulas, and switching up your sectioning depending on the area of the head. Check out some of Larisa’s top tips, then watch the full video below!

Larisa’s Top Takeaways


  • When creating a rooty look, Larisa recommends applying your base color in a teardrop pattern to ensure a seamless blend. Start by applying your base formula in the front toward the top of the head. Then, as you make your way around the shape of her head, apply that same formula lower in the back.


  • To better understand the fusion method, think of it as a pattern—the first weave is your lowlight formula, the second weave is a color melt and your top weave is the highlight formula.


  • If you use your hands to blend, always wipe your gloves clean before you apply the next formula! Clean hands plus cleans sections equals a beautiful finished look.


  • When applying the fusion method in the back, follow a V-pattern. Once you move to the sides, switch to diagonal back partings. Why? This ensures you avoid creating harsh lines.
