FORMULA STEPS

1. Create a middle part, then starting in the front, work in diagonal sections and apply Formula A to the base. 

 

2. Take 2- to 4-inch panels and gently tease the hair. Then, paint highlights with Formula B starting in the back and place each section in foil.

 

Pro Tip: Make sure to leave large sections of the base color between each highlight so the color will pop!

 

3. Process for 20 minutes, then shampoo, condition, blow-dry and style as desired.
