    Begin by parting a square in the center of the top crown. This allows you a center reference point for parting the rest of the section.

  • close formula

    On each side of the square, part 4 triangles with their bases acting as the sides of the square you just parted. The triangle’s peaks on the sides – go all the way to the ears. The triangle peaks in front – goes all the way to the hairline and in back – all the way to the occipital bone.

  • close formula

    Combine all the sections into one creating a 4 point star.

  • close formula

    Using the edges of the star you just parted, part two diamond shapes on the inside of the back part of the star.

  • close formula

    In the back section, apply the darkest. This color can be either permanent or semi permanent. Apply from scalp to ends and separate with foil.

  • close formula

    Apply a medium color – scalp through ends – to the diamond shaped section, and to the front section and separate with foil.

  • close formula

    The star shape on top of the head is the last section to be applied and will be the lightest color.

    Note: It is always best to start from the bottom and work your way up to the top section. This keeps the process clean.
