    Step 1
    Divide the head into 4 quadrants. Starting in the right side at the nape, place a ¼” fine weave onto a horizontal foil and apply Lowlight Formula from scalp to ends. Close and secure foil. Continue working up the back of the head, ending in the parietal area. Repeat in the back, on the left side.

    Step 2
    Continue on both front quadrants, this time using a vertical placement.
    Tip: Make sure not to place the lowlights too close to the front hairline.

    Step 3
    Rinse, then shampoo with Color Extend. Dry the hair.

    Step 4
    Apply Glaze Formula to Zone 1 (regrowth area). Immediately apply to Zones 2-3 (mid-shaft and ends). Process for 20 minutes at room temperature. Follow with a Redken Chemistry Color Extend Shot Phase. Process for 5 minutes and spray with Shot Phix 3.5 pHix pHase sealer. Rinse and condition with Color Extend.
