    1

    Start with Formula A, using the balayage technique to create babylights and leaving out the ends to preserve the hair from getting damaged. After processing, apply Olaplex No.2 and shampoo.

    To break the base, apply Formula B for 15 minutes to eliminate any and all gray. Shampoo the hair.

  • 3

    Apply Formula C, and let that sit until an ashy lavender tone is achieved. Shampoo the hair.
