HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Paint micro babylights throughout the entire head using Formula A to establish a lighter base and place the hair in foils.

  • 2

    Then, paint Formula B on the hair left out of the foils using an open air balayage technique. Process for 45 minutes.

  • 3

    Shampoo the hair using Oribe Signature Shampoo, but do not use conditioner. Towel-dry to prep the hair for the shadow root.

  • 4

    Starting at the back and working your way up, apply Formula C from the scalp to about 2½ inches down, smudging the root as you go along. Work your way to the front, leaving the face-framing money pieces out until the very end.

  • 5

    Rinse, then apply Formula D all over the hair. Process for 8 to 10 minutes, then condition with Oribe Singature Conditioner.

  • 6

    Prep the hair with Oribe Super Shine Moisturizing Cream, blow-dry and style with loose waves. Finish with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.
