FORMULA STEPS

Starting Point: Natural Level 5, Lightest Brown

 

Sectioning:
Working from a deep left side part, create a triangle-shaped section and secure.

 

Then, create a horseshoe-shaped section, making a part that extends from the outside corner of the eyes around to the crown area.

 

Application:
1. Starting in the front of the ear, take a ¼-inch diagonal back slice and place on a foil. Apply Formula A to the midlengths and saturate through to the ends. Cover with a foil to secure.

 

2. Continue to drop down sections until this side is complete, then repeat on the opposite side.

 

3. Next, release the triangle-shaped section and starting at the front hairline, take a ¼-inch slice and place on a foil. Apply Formula A to the mids and saturate through to the ends. Cover with a foil to secure. Continue to drop down sections until the triangle section is complete.

 

4. Starting in front of the ear, apply Formula B to the hair that is not placed in the foils and process at room temperature until pale yellow or up to 50 minutes. Shampoo with Redken Chemistry Extreme for dry hair.

 

PRO TIP: To prevent staining, rinse between foils and before removing them.

 

5. Apply Formula C using a global application, making sure to fully saturate prelightened sections.

 

6. 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.
