HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Pravana Color Formula
    8NtL + 8GL + 6GL + 10-volume developer

  • 2

    Section out the highlighted hair in the nape, clipping the hair above the nape and out of the way.

  • 3

    Begin by stitching the grown-out, previously highlighted pieces along the hairline in the nape.  Apply 6GL + 8GL starting at the regrowth and pulling through the ends in foil. Do not apply the lowlight formula to natural regrowth. Tip: The previous color technique will determine the color placement for the lowlights. Stitch out and apply 8NtL to previously lowlighted pieces.  Stitch out and apply 8GL + 6GL mixture to previously highlighted pieces with a greater amount of regrowth. It is important to visually check your placement of color in order to maintain a good balance of highlights and lowlights in the hair.

    Continue working up the back of the head from side to side, taking stitches of alternating previously highlighted pieces and previously lowlighted pieces in a foil, applying the appropriate formula. 

  • 5

    Once you have completed the back, start taking diagonal stitches following the front hairline, applying color in the same fashion as in the back.

  • 6

    Continue to the top of the head, taking diagonal stitches and applying color to alternating previously highlighted pieces and previously lowlighted pieces in a foil.
