  • 1

    Apply Formula A, then use a comb to pull the formula down about 4 inches.

  • 2

    Using Formula B, balayage in between strips of EmBee Meche with heavier concentration toward the front pieces. Process for 30 minutes.

  • 3

    At the bowl, barely get the hair wet, then emulsify Formula A further down to the midlengths for 3 to 5 minutes.

  • 4

    Rinse and tone with Formula C for 10 minutes. Add the front pieces in the last 5 minutes for added brightness around the face.
