HOW-TO STEPS

    Separate a triangular section from temple to temple, braid it, secure ends using an elastic band and pin flat with bobby pins. Then use wig clips to make the hair flatter.

    2

    Separate an inch and a half U shape section behind the first section and clip it out of the way. (Make sure your parting is clean as this is where Quikkies will be applied later).

    Pre-cut Quikkies 13-13** in half to create thinner pieces of color.

    Apply Quikkies 65/13* about 2 inches from the hair line along the parting.

    Drop down section that has been pinned up and then repeat steps 3-5 by using opposing colors placing darker (65-13) Quikkies on either side of lighter (6-65*). Alternate placement of Quikkies to give more dimension to the color.
