    Create three triangles on top. Divide the front from the back by taking a vertical part that starts at the high point of the head and ends at the top of each ear. From the high point, divide the left from the right with a center part.

    Return to the high point, and take a diagonal parting that ends at the outside corner of the right eye. This is section 2.

    On the right side, and take a horizontal part that starts at the outside corner of the right eye and ends at the vertical part above the ear. The top right triangle is section 1.

    Repeat on the left side to create Section 3.

    Start in Section 3, the left side. Begin by taking ¼-inch horizontal slice from the bottom of the section. Apply Highlight Formula from scalp to ends—do not cover with a foil. Continue taking ¼-inch slices, directing hair to the same foil and apply. When section is complete, cover with foil.

    Process Sections 1 and 2 for 35 minutes and rinse. Process Section 3 for up to 50 minutes or until pale yellow. Rinse and shampoo with Extreme.
