FORMULA STEPS

1. Prelighten the hair with Formula A, lifting to a pale yellow.

 

2. Shampoo, condition and dry the hair.

 

3. Section the hair as shown below.

 

 

4. Apply Formula B from scalp to ends on the underneath section and cover with foil.

 

5. Working through the top section, smudge Formula B to create a deep smudged root.

 

6. Apply Formula C from scalp to ends on the top section, applying over the smudged root to soften the color and create a nice blend.

 

Pro Tip: Always paint hair in the direction of the cuticle, starting at the root area and pulling through to the ends.

 

7. Process for 20 minutes. Shampoo, condition and style.
