FORMULA STEPS

1. Before

2. Before the lightening process, section the hair into quadrants. Using 2-inch subsections, apply Moroccanoil®️ Color Complete ChromaTech PRIME evenly from regrowth to ends.

 

3. Then, use a wide-tooth comb to evenly distribute the leave-in treatment, priming the hair and scalp for the lightening process.

 

Pro Tip: Farhana recommends using the two-step, in-salon ChromaTech system to reduce scalp sensitivity and seal in longer-lasting haircolor. Plus, this add-on treatment is an easy opportunity to maximize profitable color services. 

 

4. Starting around the face frame, take shallow diagonal sections and apply Formula A to begin building a seamless gradient.

5. Continue the balayage technique using Formula A and finish in the crown—where you want to maintain the most depth.

 

6. Process until desired lift is achieved, then rinse. Apply Formula B in Zone 1 and 2, process for 10 minutes and rinse. Since brunettes naturally live in the orange zone, toning with natural ash will cancel out the maximum amount of warmth.

 

7. Then, apply Formula C all over and process for 10 minutes. Rinse and wash the hair with Moroccanoil®️ Color Continue Shampoo for optimal color retention and instant repair.

 

 

8. Towel-dry the hair, then apply a generous amount of Moroccanoil®️ Color Complete ChromaTech POST from roots to ends. Process for 5 minutes and rinse thoroughly.

 

9. Style the hair with loose waves using Moroccanoil®️ Hydrating Styling Cream and Dry Texture Spray to accentuate the dimensional color.
