    Section a triangle on the right side of the middle part.

    Apply backdrop color to all hair except for the triangle section. Apply color staying 1/8th of an inch off the scalp.

  • 3

    In a triangle section, slice back-to-back foils alternating the 2 accent colors. Start with Infra RO and 20-volume, apply lightener staying 1 inch from the base (root area). Slide foils down to keep the high lift color off the base or root area. Next, apply the second accent color, Infra RR with 10-volume. Repeat sliding down foil to keep color off base or root area.

    Once foils are completed, go back in between the foils and smudge the backdrop color to the base (root area) left out. Use a color brush or tail comb, lift the colored hair away from the scalp to allow oxidation of color. Process at room temperature for 30-45 minutes or you may use 10 minutes at a low heat and 20 minutes at room temperature for color deposit.
