FORMULA STEPS

1. Apply Formula A for base retouch, let process for 30 minutes, and then wash and dry the hair thoroughly.  

2. Next, section the hair into five equal parts and start to balayage using Formula B. Tease each section slightly and alternate lightener application using a W and V pattern, making sure the ends are saturated.

Pro Tip: Make sure to leave small, thin sections out between your foils from the older color for more dimension in the hair.

3. Once all foils are lifted to a pale yellow, remove and tone with Formula C. Let process for 10 to 15 minutes, then apply Olaplex No.2 for 5 to 10 minutes.
