FORMULA STEPS

Apply Formula A to the root area. “You can adjust this ratio depending on the desired amount of depth,” he advises. For dimension in the midlengths and ends, apply Formula B and Formula C to create highlights and lowlights. Process for 15 minutes, then thoroughly rinse and towel-dry the hair (three towels). Glaze all strands at the shampoo bowl for 10 minutes using Formula D.

 

To style the hair, Kody stuck to his belief that, “Sexy hair isn’t perfect. It should be perfectly imperfect, but still better than what you were born with!”  Mission accomplished! Apply Minardi Luxury Color Care Root Lift Elevating Mist to the roots and a mixture of Minardi Abundance Volumizing Foam and Minardi Glisten Color Reflecting Drops worked through the midlengths and ends before drying!
