FORMULA STEPS

Starting Level: Previous Level 6 balayage

 

Before Starting, Know This!
Briana didn’t use any lightener to create the color. Here’s why: There was no artificial pigment to lift through, so she went straight for the color. If she had prelightened the hair before putting on the red, the hair could have experienced premature fading and the end result wouldn’t have looked as natural.

 

1. Apply Formula A to the root area only. Briana created this formula specifically to avoid “hot roots” from occurring.

 

2. Then, apply Formula B from where Formula A stops and through to the ends that were not previously lightened.

 

3. Next, alternate applying Formula C and D onto the previously lightened ends. This will create more dimension in the end result.

 

4. Let process, then rinse, wash and style as desired.
