Application

Step 1: Prep

Prep the hair by spraying Purify and Revive PRIME generously throughout the hair, combing through for even distribution and allowing to sit for 3 minutes (no rinsing or shampoo required). This will diminish any hard water minerals prior to any chemical service.

Pro Tip

Minerals are found in 85% of household water which can cause lightener to puff and swell or color to take inaccurately.

Step 2: Section

Divide the hair into the PRAVANA Standard 4 quadrants by taking a radial parting from crown to ear on both sides, then crown to nape dropping out your first diagonal back section and finally crown to nose dropping out your first hairline section.

Step 3: Highlight

Highlight the fringe and front hairline sections by utilizing vertical partings and micro stitching to create a heavily highlighted fringe and front halo 2” back from the hairline. Then taking horizontal sections, continue highlighting utilizing micro stitches in the front quadrants and macro stitches in the back quadrants.

Pro Tip

Utilize microstitches (- – -) in finer areas of the hair for a softer blend, use macrostitches (— — —) in thicker areas to cover more ground quickly.
Process at room temperature up to 55 minutes checking every 5-10 minutes until you have reached a Level 10 Pale Yellow. Shampoo the hair with Intense Therapy Cleanse and towel-dry well.

Step 4: Base Break and Tone

Apply the Base Break Formula to the new regrowth only and process up to 10 minutes at room temperature. Shampoo lightly and towel-dry the hair. Apply the Toning Formula all over and process up to 5 minutes at room temperature. Rinse and dry the hair completely.

Pro Tip

“Base Breaking” softens the natural level so there is less contrast against new highlights which can be done at the time of the service and in between touchups.

Step 5: VIVIDS Everlasting Application

Alternate the VIVIDS Everlasting Formulas using your own creativity to add as many or as little pops of color for a fun accent.
Process 30 minutes at room temperature. Cleanse and Condition with PRAVANA’s Intense Therapy regimen.
