Nothing!” Denis says. Get the steps!

    Break the base with Formula A on the regrowth for 10 minutes to blur the line of demarcation and create a soft, light canvas. Rinse, then blow-dry. Starting at the front hairline, take a vertical weave parting and apply Formula B.

    Lay foils in a bricklay pattern. Remember to include the hairline and the hair over the ear. To prevent bleeding, triple-fold foils lengthwise and fold over the top of the foil-holding weave section.
