FORMULA STEPS

  1. Apply Formula A and create teasy babylights around the hairline, starting 2 inches back and leaving no hair out in between foils.
  2. On the rest of the hair, alternate between two techniques—paint the surface of the hair on two V-sections, then create one teasy babylight. Repeat this pattern throughout. Diana recommends saturating the last 2 inches of hair at the ends, and using foils throughout for maximum lift.
  3. On both sides of the head, apply Formula B on V-sections and babylights.
  4. Throughout the back, apply Formula C on V-sections and Formula B on babylights.
  5. Process for 50 minutes, then rinse and comb through.
  6. Apply Formula D from roots to midshaft, leaving out the hairline. Then, apply Formula E from midshaft to ends, and on the front hairline from roots to ends. Process for 10 minutes, then rinse.
  7. Apply Olaplex No.2. Process for 15 minutes, then rinse.
  8. Shampoo and condition with Revlon Professional Nutri Color Creme 1002
