FORMULA STEPS

1. Starting at the nape, take 2-inch sections and apply Formula A in a bricklay pattern. Work your way up the head until you reach the perimeter.

 

Pro Tip: To create natural dimension throughout, simply leave some sections of hair unpainted to act as a lowlight.

 

2. Once you reach the perimeter, start at the hairline and overdirect the top section forward. Paint Formula A higher up on the sections closest to the hairline and paint lower on the rear sections that are further from the front.

 

3. Let process for 1 hour, then rinse.

 

4. Next, tone by applying Formula B to the roots and Formula C from the midlengths to the ends. Melt the formulas where they meet for a seamless blend, then process for 10 minutes.

 

5. Rinse, blow-dry and style as desired.
