HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Create a center parting from the front hairline to the nape. Then, take a parting from across the top of the head, extending it from the top of the ear to the top of the other ear. Secure all sections for control.

  • 2

    Starting in the nape, take a diagonal slice and, with a freehand technique, apply Formula A at the midlengths and ends feathering up toward the scalp but staying a few inches away. Repeat until all sections are complete, let process until desired lightness is achieved, then rinse. 

  • 3

    Next, to create a deeper base, apply Formula B to the new growth. Then, working down the hair strand, melt Formulas C, D and E (in that order) using a Kabuki Brush for a seamless blend.

  • 4

    Repeat this application method, alternating the formula order, until all sections are complete. Then, let process up to 20 minutes at room temperature, rinse thoroughly, apply BOND Ultim8 Step 2 for 10 minutes and rinse again.

    Finish the service with Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo and Conditioner, and send your client home with a BOND Ultim8 Step 3 weekly for additional nourishment at home.
