    Using Formula A, baby light the full head in foils, starting in the nape and working toward the front.

  • 3

    Rinse, shampoo and condition using Oribe Signature Shampoo and Conditioner. Towel-dry.

  • 4

    Apply a shadow root using Formula C. Process for 10 minutes, then rinse.

    Tone using Formula D. Process for 8 minutes, then rinse.

  • 6

    To style, Erik applied Oribe Imperial Blowout Transformative Styling Crème and Davines Oi All In One Milk, then blow-dried the hair. He used a Hot Tools 1¼ inch Marcel Iron to create soft waves and finished with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray and KEVIN.MURPHY POWDER.PUFF.
