HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Create a center parting from the front hairline to the nape. Then, take a parting from across the top of the head, extending it from the top of the ear to the top of the other ear. Secure all sections for control.

  • 2

    Apply Formula A from the scalp to the midlengths, then apply Formula B from the midlengths through to the ends. Use a Kabuki Brush where the two colors meet to blend the color and create a seamless transition. 

     

    Pro Tip:  When applying Formulas A and B, place them higher on the hair strand around the face and lower in the back around the occipital. This mimics where the hair would naturally be lighter from the sun.

  • 3

    Repeat this application method until all sections are complete, then let process up to 20 minutes at room temperature. Rinse thoroughly, apply BOND Ultim8 Step 2 for 10 minutes and then rinse again.

    Finish the service with Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo and Conditioner, and send your client home with a BOND Ultim8 Step 3 weekly for additional nourishment at home.
