FORMULA STEPS

1. Divide the hair into five sections: two in the back, one on the top of the head and one on each side.

 

2. Starting in the bottom of the nape, apply Formula A in 1/8-inch sections, using heavy weaves, a teasy highlight technique and foils.

 

 

3. Work from side to side until the whole head is finished to achieve an event lift.

 

 

4. Once you achieve your desired lift, rinse and shampoo with BLONDME Blonde Brilliance Shampoo. Apply BLONDME Keratin Restore Bonding Mask for 2 to 3 minutes at the bowl, then rinse and blow-dry.

 

5. Section the hair into quadrants. Working from the top down, apply Formula B to the base, then Formula H, then alternate Formulas C through G in the shine line (the round of the head), ending with Formula H on the tips.

 

 

6. Process for 20 minutes, then rinse with ice cold water, and use a color conditioner.

 

7. Apply Mizani 25 Miracle Milk Leave-In Treatment and Mizani Moisturizing Fast Drying Foam Wrap. Diffuse.
