FORMULA STEPS

1. Start applying highlights with Formula A. This process takes Nicola an hour, so she works with a lower developer in the foils.

 

Pro Tip: Nicola always adds Virtue® ColorKick™ (the first-ever human keratin hair filler to every color formula to protect hair and maintain shine.

 

2. While the foils process, immediately apply Formula B to the base. Then allow everything to process and rinse.

 

3. Wash with Virtue® Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner to replenish strength and maintain softness and shine.

 

4. Towel-dry and apply Formula C to the roots. Then, apply Formula D from the midlengths to ends. Process and rinse.

 

5. For added moisture and shine, apply the Virtue® Restorative Treatment Mask all over and process for 10 minutes. This transformative treatment features Alpha Keratin 60ku™, so it has the power to bind directly to damaged areas and repair. Rinse, blow-dry and style as desired.
