FORMULA STEPS

1. Apply Formula B to regrowth and pull it through 1-inch of the previously colored hair, throughout the entire head.

 

2. Balayage Formula A to every section of hair, in varying lengths, about 2 to 4 inches away from the scalp.

 

3. When the hair reaches the desired level of lightness—a pale yellow—and Formula B has processed for at least 20 minutes, shampoo and condition the hair, then thoroughly towel-dry the hair.

 

4. Applied Formula C to lightened areas through to the ends, and apply Formula D to blend the Formula A at the roots into Formula C to help create a seamless transition of color.

 

5. Process for 20 minutes, the rinse and shampoo and condition the hair. Style as desired.
