HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Application
    1.
    Begin by applying Formula A, alternating babylights and slices in foils around the hairline.

    2. Starting from the nape and working your way up, balayage the ends using Formula B.

    3. Once you reach the crown, go back through and backcomb random pieces in foils using Formula C. Process for 30 minutes.

    4. Tone using Formula D. Process for 5 to 10 minutes.

    5. Rinse, shampoo with Wella Professionals Elements Sulfate-Free Shampoo and condition using Wella Professionals Blondor Blonde Seal & Care.

    Cut & Style
    1. Section out 1 inch from the bottom hairline. Starting just below the hairline, use a razor to softly remove length. 

    2. Bring down the next ½-inch section, and softly feather away length 1 inch below your bottom section, transitioning you into your undercut. Continue this process until you reach the crown.

    3. Starting on the sides, gently sweep the razor from the length in the back to the front, moving downward to create an angle and save length. Continue this process on both sides, working in ½-inch sections.

    4. When you reach the front hairline, create soft, concave layers around the face, starting below the cheekbones; this will save your length around the face.

    5. Finish by softly feathering out any bulk, thus creating internal layers throughout and allowing movement.

    6. Follow with your favorite root booster and a 1-inch curling iron, barely tapping the ends.
