HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Starting in the nape region, take a diagonal slice and apply Formula A using a freehand technique in a “V” shape to the midlengths through to the ends. Feather the formula up toward the scalp for a soft diffusion of color. Continue this application until all sections are completed.

  • 2

    Let process until desired lightness is achieved or up to 50 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly and towel-dry.

  • 3

    Next, starting in the nape, apply Formula B to a large triangular-shaped subsection. Then, create another triangular-shaped subsection and apply Formula C. Continue to take triangular-shaped subsections and alternate formulas until all sections are complete.

  • 4

    Process up to 20 minutes at room temperature, then rinse thoroughly, apply BOND Ultim8 Step 2 for 10 minutes and rinse again.

  • 5

    Finally, cleanse and condition using Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo and Conditioner.
