Application

Step 1: Prep and Section

Spray Purify & Revive PRIME, comb through and allow to sit for 3 minutes to diminish minerals in the hair and then create 4 sections: First, divide the hair in half by parting behind the ear to behind the ear across the front of the crown. Next, using the Parietal Ridge as your guide, create two side sections. The remaining hair in the front becomes your top front section and the remaining hair in the back becomes your last section.

Pro Tip

Find the Parietal Ridge by laying your comb vertically against the temple, tip the comb and take a horizontal parting where the head begins to round.

Step 2: Lighten

Take a ¼” diagonal back parting in a side section at the hairline, teasing the hair once or twice micro stitch (- – -) and apply the lightening formula avoiding the tease. Drop out ¼” and repeat throughout the section and on the other side creating 7-9 highlights in each section. Next, taking horizontal partings, create 3 of the same highlights in the top/front section dropping out ¼” in between. Shampoo with Color Protect Cleanse and apply Silk Degrees Prep & Treat for 5 minutes, rinse and towel-dry.

Step 3: Color and Shadow Root

Apply the Color Formula to the entire back section and on scalp to create a Shadow Root.

Pro Tip

Drag down the Shadow Root deeper in the back and more shallow towards the front.

Step 4: Tone

Apply the Toning Formula to the remaining mid-lengths and ends and process all 20 minutes at room temperature. Rinse only and condition with Color Protect Condition.

Pro Tip

Blend the transition area well between the Color Formula and the Toning Formula using your brush and your hands for a seamless result.

Step 5: Style

Detangle with Intense Therapy Leave-In Treatment. Apply Full Volume to the root for lift and Polish & Reunite throughout the mid-lengths and ends for hold. Spray lightly with Hydra Pearl Mist for thermal protection and comb through for even distribution. Style as desired.
