FORMULA STEPS

1. On dry hair, start by applying Formula A to the outgrowth, blending it down to soften the line between regrowth and previous color.

2. Next, take Formulas B and C, balayaging the remainder of the hair. Alternate the lighteners to add variety to the lightening. Process the hair until a Level 9-10 pale yellow is achieved. 

3. Wash and condition the hair with Wella Professional’s Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner and dry the hair.

4. Apply Formulas D and E in diagonal partings, alternating the colors at the roots and melting them into each other as you work down each section.

5. Process for 30 minutes and rinse with cold water.

6. Blow-dry the hair and style.
