Working off the deep part, take a slender, diagonal parting and clip it aside. Start the application on a diagonal-horizontal weave parting and apply Formula C. Hold the brush at an angle to create a solfter line at the scalp about an inch away. Saturate the mids and ends to create brightness towards the ends, forcing an ombré.
