    Color Formulas
    Formula A: 1:1 Equal Parts: CHI Blondest Blonde + CHI Ionic Color Generator 10 or 20-volume, depending on the level of the hair*
    Formula B: CHI Chromashine Vibrant Violet

    Take diagonal backward partings and position the foil under the sliced section. Applying Formula A, start at the roots with the brush angled vertically and move towards the ends horizontally.
