HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Starting natural base color: Level 4 Dark Brown.
    55% gray in the front; 20% gray in the back. Hair was previously lightened at the base with highlights.

    Base Color (re-growth only): Vero K-PAK Color Age Defy ½ oz 6NN+ and ½ oz 8NGC+ with 1 oz 20 Volume Veroxide (1:1)
    Take fine sections and apply color close to the scalp at the re-growth using a bottle. Tap the color onto the hair with a brush.
    Tip: To minimize staining on the hairline, apply color using the tip of the bottle. Make tiny circles while ensuring the tip maintains contact with the scalp. Follow through by tapping the haircolor along the hairline.

    Lowlights: Vero K-PAK Color Chrome 1½ oz G6 + ½ oz RB4 with 2 oz Chrome Activator (1:1)
    Tip: Rather than just refreshing down to the ends, refresh only selected strands with lowlights to create dimensional color.
    Process accordingly.
