FORMULA STEPS

1. Starting in the back, alternate between painting teasy lights and foilayaging with Formula A. Then, switch to Formula B as you work your way to the front of the head. Process until she reaches a Level 9.

 

2. Gently brush out the tease, then rinse.

3. Then, apply Formula C to Zone 1, Formula D to Zone 2 and Formula E to Zone 3. Use a wide-tooth comb to seamlessly blend all the formulas, then let everything process for 8 minutes. 

 

4. Rinse, then apply Olapex No.2 and leave on for a few minutes before rinsing again.

 

5. Cut the hair into an on-trend lob, then blow-dry and finish by creating lived-in beach waves.
