FORMULA STEPS

1. Divide the hair so you have one section in back, three in front: a Mohawk section down the center and two on each side of the head.

 

2. Using an alternating pattern of two medium weaves sections to one babylight, apply Formula A to the back section, working from the hairline up to the crown. Sara says this will save you time, foils and product.

 

3. Then, apply Formula B to the front sections following the same pattern you used in Step 2.

 

4. For the money piece, micro weave the hairline followed by two back-to-back slices and continue applying Formula B. Process for 30 minutes—15 minutes in open air and 15 minutes under heat.

 

5. Apply Formula C to the roots and let process for 5 to 7 minutes, comb through to the ends and rinse.
