    Step 1:  Section an elongated triangle over either eye to create a veil of interest that will accentuate her fringe, creating a soft focal point.

    Step 2:  Over each ear, section two upside down triangles, with points directly over each ear.  The widest angle of the triangle will provide a wider space for color. 

    Step 3:  Slice and weave foils alternately within each triangle on diagonal towards face. 
    Foil Formula:  BW2 Powder Lightener plus 10-volume Pure White Developer. 
    Process to Level 7 Gold. 

    Step 4:  Apply Formula 1 to re-growth.  Time for 45 minutes for optimum gray coverage 
    Formula: 1 1/2 oz parts 46D/4A plus 1/2 oz 85N/5N part plus 2 oz Clairoxide Clear 20-volume developer. 
    Note: 20-volume developer allows for maximum deposit on the gray. 
    Tip: Make sure to keep partings neat and fine for even saturation. 

    After shampooing and towel-drying, apply 93DN/7A plus equal parts 10-volume Clairoxide developer for 20 minutes to create a brightening effect with control to combat brassiness
