3

Apply Formula A using a feathering technique to create either a V-pattern or a W-pattern.

 

Tip: Lay the foils flat, so the hair closest to the scalp (the natural, virgin hair) gets an accelerated lift. Lay the panels flat, so the hair is evenly penetrated with lightener.

Formula A

Formula B

#mydentity Misty Mauve Demi-Permanent X-Press Toner + 6-volume developer  + Olaplex No.1

Formula D

4

Continue to section the hair and apply Formula A, taking smaller panels of hair to stay close to the scalp.

 

Tip: Backcomb the whole panel (opposed to smaller highlights) to completely erase any brass by overlapping all of the hair in each foil. If you’re working with a layered cut, overdirect the hair before you backcomb to get as close to the scalp as possible.
