FORMULA STEPS

1. Starting at her hairline and angling back, section the hair into four quadrants of vertical slices. Leave a ½-inch section in between each slice for dimension.

2. Apply Formula A in the front quadrants and Formula B in the back quadrants.

3. Tone with Formula C to break the base just enough to lighten her natural hair. Rinse and towel-dry.

4. Tone again with Formula D starting at the base and pulling it all the way through to the ends. Process for 10 minutes.
