Before

2

Apply Formula A to the regrowth area. Process for anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes, or until desired lightness is achieved.

3

Rinse, then wash the hair with PRAVANA The Perfect Blonde Shampoo. Blow-dry until hair is 100 percent dry.

4

Take small sections and tease a little at the root to create a softer look. "For this balayage I switched up my patterns and split all my sections in half,” says Nicole.

5

On one section, hand-paint Formula B and place in foil. Directly next to that first foil, apply Formula C and place in foil.

6

Work your way up the head taking the same split sections and teasing at the root. Then, apply Formula D to one section and Formula E to the following. “For some of the pieces around the hairline and on the crown I skipped the step of teasing and just free hand-painted which ever color I wanted to appear there,” shares Nicole.

7

Let process for 25 minutes, then rinse with cool water. Wash and condition with PRAVANA ChromaSilk VIVIDS Color Protect Shampoo and Conditioner.

8

Apply PRAVANA ChromaSilk VIVIDS Color Protect Aftercare along with Wella Professionals EIMI Sugar Lift Spray and blow-dry straight.

9

For looser curls, take large sections and spray Wella Stay Firm Hairspray. Leave the ends out and curl each section in opposite directions, giving you a textured finish when you run your fingers through.
