FORMULA STEPS

Before shot.

 

1. To start, babylight super fine sections with Formula A. Let process until the hair reaches a pale yellow and then wash out completely.

 

2. Next, apply Formula B all over, then Formula C at the root and stretch down about 1 inch. Leave on for only 5 to 10 minutes and watch carefully at the bowl.

 

3. Once color is achieved, rinse, blow-dry and style using a 1-inch iron and texture spray to create lived-in waves.
