FORMULA STEPS

1. Apply Formula A on the scalp to the line of demarcation from her previous balayage. Process for 45 minutes.

2. Separate the hair into four sections and brick lay panels starting with Formula C to Formula B to Formula D. Continue the pattern all the way to the crown. Process for 35 minutes. “I made sure to place Formula B heavier around her face because she previously had her lightest balayage pieces around the face to start,” shares Frances.

3. Rinse the hair with Sebastian Professional Drench Shampoo and Conditionerand style with Kenra Professional Blow Dry Spray. “Her hair is naturally silky straight so I didn’t feel the need to run a flat iron over it, but I did spray some Wella Eimi Glam Mist for a boost of shine,” notes Frances.
