    Take a second diagonal back subsection from the fringe to the crown. Create one large, 3-point “W” highlight in the front, from the fringe to just behind the ear.  Create one large 2 point  “V” highlight in the back, from behind the ear to the crown. Apply Infinie Platine closer to the regrowth area at the front of the “V.” Place cotton under the highlighted piece, and perforated plastic over the highlighted piece.

    Leave out the crown to achieve a natural, lightened-by-the-sun result. Place perforated plastic over the final highlighted section. Tone with DiaLight 9.03 + 6-volume Diactivateur and process for 10 minutes.
