Apply the mixed Formula A to dry, unwashed hair from roots to ends, and develop for five minutes. (Wella's new Color Renew reduces undesired oxidative color without lightening the natural haircolor.) Rinse hair well only, and dry the hair completely. Then, section the hair as shown—from ear to ear, one section in the back and a large triangle section on top.
