FORMULA STEPS

1. Apply Formula A to the roots, then use Formula A to paint lowlights throughout. “As for my placement, I was inspired by our Dynamic Dimension technique and strategically left out highlights in certain areas and focused more around the face,” shares Briana.

 

2. Gloss with Formula B, then do another round of gloss with Formula C. “We felt she needed a little bit more of a punch up so I glossed her twice,” notes Briana. “Never be afraid to take your clients back to the bowl to get that right answer.

 

3. Let process, rinse, then style as desired. “The processing time with both the base color and gloss is key as you want to make sure all of your hard work doesn’t get rinsed out after one shampoo.
