    Start by applying and processing custom-colored extensions. Dip-dye 10 Hairtalk Original Tape-In Extensions in Color 613 into a bowl of Formula A to create a marbleized jewel effect. Then, squeeze to remove any excess color. Separate the extensions and lay them on a flat surface, then paint over every extension lightly with Formula B.

     

    Pro Tip: When dip-dyeing extensions, don’t completely submerge them into the water to avoid compromising adhesive bands.

    Repeat the same process on 12 Hairtalk Petite Tape-In Extensions in Color 613 by applying Formula C, squeezing any excess color and reapplying Formula C for an extra pop of purple.

     

    Pro Tip: Remember that saturating different sections more than others will create dimension throughout the extensions.

    Then, create the custom-colored shadow root using Hairtalk Original Plus Tape-In Extensions in Color 613 by slightly brushing Formula C over the hand-sewn hair that falls over the adhesive tab.

     

    Pro Tip: Avoid oversaturating the adhesive side and ensure the extensions are completley dry before applying, otherwise the adhesive will be compromised.
