Take a horseshoe section from recession to crown and clip. Drop rest of hair down to do root shadow. The horseshoe section will then end up being divided into 6 subsections. Each subsection will have 2-6 V’s- 2 point balayage.
Creating a horseshoe subsection around the parietal ridge, secure this section and release the remaining hair. Apply Formula 3 to new growth of the hair below the top section.
Use Sweet Meches to isolate each highlight before releasing the hair from the top section. Release the top horseshoe subsection and create 6 horizontal subsections moving back from hairline.
Paint V’s (2 point balayage) with Formula 1, utilizing Formula 2 inside every other V in back 2 sections. Use Sweet Meches to isolate. Process to desirable result, rinse thoroughly and towel dry.
Gloss and Treat:
Apply Formula 3 globally, process 2-10 minutes, depending on desired result, rinse thoroughly.
Removal and Rinsing:
Wet, emulsify, rinse and shampoo once with L’Oréal Professionnel A-OX Vitamino Color shampoo. Condition and preserve color radiance with a Serie Expert Powermix Color A-OX in-salon treatment.
