HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Mix in a bowl Evolution of The Color3 5.5 with Oxid’o Alfaparf Milano 10-volume, dilluiion ratio 1:1,5. Apply the chosen basic color all over the hair from roots to ends.

  • 2

    After applying the basic color, comb the hair into the place of the final styling. Mix in a bowl Supermeches+ High Lift with Oxid’o Alfaparf Milano 20-volume, dillution ratio 1:2.

  • 3

    Choose an area where you wish to see a lighter effect on the midlengths and ends. Pick up the hair in a V-shaped section, narrow at the sides and deeper in the center. Start to paint the bleaching mixture onto the section.

  • 4

    Work in a V shape so that the application is thinner at the edges of the section and becomes denser in the center of the section.

  • 5

    Choose another place on the head where you want to see an area of lightness and repeat the same sectioning and application technique.

  • 6

    Repeat the application on the opposite front side of the head. Here we selected two V shaped sections at the back of the head and one for each side.

  • 7

    Develop the color for 35 minutes and shampoo. The finished result shows a lightening effect where the tones harmonize perfectly together.
