FORMULA STEPS

1. Start by applying Formula A to the roots. Then, apply Formula B to the old balayage to add dimension and melt the two formulas together. 

 

2. For a pop of brightness in the face-framing area, use Formula C to paint a strong money piece. Process for 30 minutes.

 

3. Rinse, then tone all over with Formula D.
