FORMULA STEPS

1. Touch up the roots by applying Formula A and let process. 

 

2. Rinse, then apply Formula B over her pre-existing balayage and let process.

 

Pro Tip: If a client’s red hair seems to brown out, don’t tone with demi-permanent color. Elise says toning with semi-permanent color instead will make everything POP.

 

3. Shampoo with Vibrant Sexy Hair Color Lock Shampoo, then apply Vibrant Sexy Hair Vivid Memory before blow-drying. “I love using the shampoo to scrub the hairline after applying a fashion color,” shares Elise. “No one wants a harsh look, and I can feel confident that it won’t pull the color off her hair or alter the look!”

 

4. For the style, create loose, lived-in waves with a 1-inch curling iron. Then, apply Vibrant Sexy Hair Color Lock Hairspray for extra hold and Vibrant Sexy Hair Rose Elixir for added shine.
