FORMULA STEPS

1. Using Formula A, start to balayage in the bottom back sections, painting some pieces all the way to the root and skipping every third section.

2. Complete the entire back of the head in this manner.

3. Moving to the sides and front of the head, balayage using Formula B and foils. Let process for 20 minutes.

4. Rinse at shampoo bowl and apply Formula C (the glam bath!). Mallory used this mixture to get an added boost of brightness and to make sure all the purple was removed from her client’s hair. She let the mixture sit for 10 minutes. Then, shampoo with Redken All Soft and rinse.

5. Apply Formula D to midlengths and Formula E to ends, then finish the service with an Olaplex No.2 treatment.
