    Color Formula
    Pravana 8NtL + 8GL + 10-volume developer

  • close formula

    Divide the front of the hair into two sections; along the natural part-line to the crown and down to the front of the ears.

  • close formula

    Through the back, create a zigzag parting from the crown to the occipital. Then, section out large, diagonal sections off of the zigzag.

  • close formula

    Create a triangle section from the corners of the nape to the occipital. Apply 8GL from roots to ends in this section.

  • close formula

    Working off the diagonal of the triangle section, take 2- to 3-inch wide slices in a brick-lay fashion, working up the back of the head, and leaving ½- to 1-inch sections out between the lowlight slices.  Alternate the application, applying two 8GL slices for every one 8NtL slice. Tip: You may use foils or cotton to separate the lowlight slices. 

  • close formula

    Once you reach the crown, begin working into the sides of the head, taking 2- to 3-inch wide slices in a brick-lay fashion and leaving ½- to 1-inch sections out between the lowlight slices, alternating the application of two 8GL slices for every one 8NtL slice. 

  • close formula

    Continue working this way until you reach an inch below the natural parting. Leave out the section around the natural lighting to maintain lightness.
