HOW-TO STEPS

1

Create micro babylights throughout the entire head using Formula A to establish a lighter base. Place the hair in foils.

2

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

6

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