FORMULA STEPS

Starting Point: Natural Level 3, Medium Brown. 

 

1. Apply Formula A in ¼-inch diagonal back foils with a micro-stitch along the hairline.

 

2. Then, apply Formula B at the roots using a global application. Isolate the crown area and melt it into the midlengths with Redken’s Edging Brush.

 

3. Process for 35 minutes. Shampoo and condition with Redken Chemistry Extreme for dry hair.

 

4. To add hints of sun-kissed color, isolate the top and crown area and create triangle subsections. Apply Formula C using a balayage technique. Process at room temperature until orange, or up to 50 minutes, then shampoo with Chemistry Extreme.

 

5. Apply Formula D using a global application. Process at room temperature for 20 minutes and rinse, do not shampoo. On towel-dried hair, apply pH-Bonder #2 Fiber Restorative Pre-wash Concentrate for 10 minutes. Rinse and follow with Color Extend Magnetics shampoo and conditioner.

 

After.
