STEP 1:
Protect the hair with Defy Damage Pro Series 1. Shake the can vigorously, then apply it to the hair in two-inch sections starting in the back. Spray in short bursts, then comb through for even distribution.

STEP 6:
Starting with an angle that mimics the hairline at the nape, take a weave parting and apply formula 2 in a foilyage that feathers at the base.

Tip: Keep the lightener away from the base color as to not overlap the two.

STEP 7:
Continue foilyaging the back, working up the sections in angles taking weave partings with Formula 2. When you reach the prelightened blonde pieces, switch to Formula 3.
