    PAUL MITCHELL COLOR FORMULAS
    formula a/retouch: Paul Mitchell® the color 1 oz. 9CB + 1 oz. 8CB + 3 shots Violet Color Shots® + 2 oz. 20-volume Cream Developer
    formula b: Paul Mitchell Shines XG® 1 oz. 10 WB + drop of 8C + 1½ oz. 5-volume XG Processing Cream
    formula c: Paul Mitchell Shines XG® 1 oz. 7NB + 1½ oz. 5-volume XG Processing Cream
    formula d: Paul Mitchell Synchrolift® + 20-volume Cream Developer

    Color Retouch: Section the hair into four standard segments. Clip away for control. Apply Formula A onto the new growth, and process for 35 minutes. Shampoo and condition with Paul Mitchell Color Protect® Post-Color Shampoo and Paul Mitchell Color Protect® Daily Conditioner or Paul Mitchell Color Protect® Reconstructive Treatment if necessary. Blow-dry the hair.

    Divide the head into four segments, slightly off-center at the front hairline to the center nape, from the crown to the front of each ear. Clip away for control. Start on the front, right side, taking a vertical, diagonal back section that is parallel to the hairline. Slice out the section and underlay with a piece of foil.

    Divide the hair into two sections. Apply Formula B to one of the sections of hair, placing the brush at a slight diagonal at the scalp. Feather through all the way to the ends. On the same piece of foil on the second section of hair, apply Formula C.

  • 3

    Fold the foil form corner to corner, creating a triangular origami foil packet.

  • 4

    Slice a diagonal back section and place the hair on a foil. Spray Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Moisture Mist® in a 1/4-inch ribbon at the scalp to diffuse and soften Formula D. Next, apply Formula D with the brush at an angle, and feather through areas that need to be lightened.

  • 5

    Continue up the segment until you reach the top slice. The top slice should end almost parallel to the center parting, and the foil folded square.

  • 6

    Move to the opposite side and replicate the same sectioning, color placement and foil fold, alternating colors as desired.

  • 7

    Move to the back. Starting at the nape and using horizontal, diagonal back section, alternate the color formulas and apply in the same manner as the front segments.

  • 8

    Process for 25 minutes, then shampoo and condition with Paul Mitchell Color Protect® Post-Color Shampoo and Paul Mitchell Color Protect® Daily Conditioner or Paul Mitchell Color Protect® Reconstructive Treatment if necessary.
