Before

2

Babylight throughout the entire head using Formula A. Separate each section with foil, but leave the ends out. "It's important to take very fine sections close together to be able to cut through her brassy red base," shares Jenn. 

3

Using Formula B, paint the ends of the hair that were left out of the foils. Let process.

4

Rinse, then shampoo the hair. Do not condition yet. Apply Formula C starting at the nape and work your way forward. Comb the formula down about 2 inches using a wide-tooth comb, continuously moving the color around. Process for about 12 to 15 minutes. 

5

Rinse the hair, then towel-dry. Apply Formula D all over, fully saturating the hair. Let process for 15 minutes. 

6

Condition, then style as desired. To achieve Jenn's beachy waves, curl the hair with a 1¼-inch Hot Tools Pro curling iron and spray with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.
