HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Natural Color: 5

    Formula A: Flamboyage Meche + 30g A New Colour Bleaching Powder + 90g A New Colour Activator 10-volume

    Formula B:
    Flamboyage Meche + 30g A New Colour Bleaching Powder + 90g A New Colour Activator 30-volume

  • 2

    Create ½-inch sections, beginning in the front top section.

  • 3

    Lift the section 90 degrees from the head, place a Flamboyage Meche behind the small and press the section of hair onto the meche to secure. Paint small, rectangular freehand patterns, alternating Formulas A and B. The pattern should look like a stretched checkerboard.

  • 4

    When you have completed the section, roll up the meche and secure it at the base with a small clip to prevent the colors from mixing. Repeat this process with each section, always leaving out a ½-inch section of hair between each painted section.

  • 5

    Continue this technique on both sides of the head, working upwards to the sections in the crown area. Process to desired level of lift, checking regularly, up to 40 minutes. Rinse and shampoo with Davines Nounou Shampoo.

  • 6

    Tone with Formula C. Process up to 10 minutes, checking visually until you’ve reached the desired shade.
