1
Create a large triangular section, placing the widest part of the triangle above the occipital bone and the peak beneath the crown area. Isolate the hairline section, then subdivide the remaining sections—nape, occipital to crown, crown to front hairline and hairline—creating smaller triangular and rectangular sections.

2
Starting in the nape section, take a horizontal weave and apply Formula A. Fold the foil gently in two without any tension to avoid pulling away from the root. Then, take a slice above that first section and apply Formula B. Continue alternating between the two formulas as you work your way up the head.

3
As the section becomes two foils wide, be sure to place the same formula in the adjacent foil. Once you reach the top of the head, the foil will take on a more triangular shape, allowing it to stay closer to the root area. For a softer result at the crown, the last two foils are weaved, not sliced.

4
Repeat the same steps on the opposite side of the head, making sure to always apply the same formulas adjacent to each other.

5
In the front hairline section, switch to a backtoback slicing technique. To create a more solid effect through the front, do not leave any hair out between the foils. Also, avoid placing color on the roots.

6
In the section behind the backtoback panel, resume the regular slicing technique. Once again, hair is left out between the foils.
Show Steps
7
Return to the backtoback panel. Pulling the foil away, apply Formula A to the root and process to the desired lift before rinsing.
Show Steps
8
Resection the hair, isolating the backtoback hairline section. Then, subdivide the section at the center and apply Formula C to tone, extending the application down through the sides.

Isolate these sections in foil and process according to manufacturer’s instructions.
