Women everywhere are embracing the nude look—with highlighters, bronzers, eye shadows, and even lip colors in luminous natural tones that blend beautifully with their skin tone and give off a megawatt glow. Now imagine hair in gleaming nude shades–from sand to sable, beach-bronze and beyond–that makes you look gorgeous and naturally lit-from-within. That’s the brilliance of Glow Lights, a glow-giving highlighting technique perfected using Joico’s Nude Glow Collection, LumiShine’s range of universally flattering, radiant tones that deliver believable, glowing looks… and the healthiest hair imaginable.

First, section the head in half from top of ear to top of ear. Next, divide the hair into six sections: a triangle that extends from the top of the crown to the front hairline, two sections on either side of the front triangle; a triangle that extends from the crown to just above the occipital bone; and two side sections on either side of that back triangle.
Two sections on either side of the front triangle.
Working back toward the crown, take two back-to-back horizontal weave partings (leaving a bit of natural hair between each foil) and apply Formula 1 from mid-length to ends.
Continuing in the same direction, take another horizontal weave parting and apply Formula 5 from mid-length to ends.
TIP: As you work up the section, take larger weaves and tease the base of the hair; this helps add dimension as well as create a more natural-looking, diffused color blend.
Take two back-to-back diagonal weave partings with Formula 1, then another weave parting with Formula 5.
Take one last weave parting with Formula 1, for approximately 8 foils in this section.
Move to the side section on the right. Take a diagonal forward weave parting right off the hairline and apply Formula 2.
Continue working up the section; take two back-to-back weave partings (leaving a little natural hair out of each foil) and apply Formula 2.
Take a third back-to-back weave parting with Formula 2.
Take a weave parting with Formula 5, then move to the opposite side and repeat the process.
Return to the first front side section and continue working diagonally toward the crown following the same foiling pattern: three weave partings with Formula 2 (lightener); one weave parting with Formula 5 (permanent color). For the last 2-3 weave partings in the section, switch to Formula 3, the 20 Volume Lightener formula.Repeat the process on the opposite side section, weaving until you run out of hair.
Move to the back left section. Starting at the nape, take two wide back-to-back weave partings and apply Formula 3.
Take a third weave and apply Formula 5, then move to the opposite side and repeat the process.
NOTE: Notice how low the lightener application starts in each weave.
Return to the first back side section and continue working up the section taking diagonal weave partings following the same foiling pattern: two back-to-back weave partings with Formula 3 (lightener) followed by one weave parting with Formula 5 (permanent color).
For the last five weave partings in the section, switch to Formula 4, the 25 Volume lightening formula. As you work up the head, tease each parting at the base for a seamless, blended color.
Repeat the process on the opposite side back section.
Move to the last triangle section at the top. Starting on the left side of the triangle, take a diagonal weave, tease the root, then apply Formula 4 from mid-length to ends. Feather the foilyage about 2-3 inches away from the root to add depth and dimension to your overall look.
Take a second back-to-back diagonal weave parting and apply Formula 4 in the same manner. Take another back-to-back weave parting and apply Formula 5.
Switch to the right side of the top triangle and continue the foiling pattern: two weave partings with Formula 4 (lightener) followed by one weave parting with Formula 5 (permanent color). Switch back to the other side and continue until the entire top triangle is complete.
Process for 35 minutes. Shampoo with K-PAK® Color Therapy. Towel-dry hair.
Apply Formula 6 in a teardrop shape; lower in the front and deeper as you move toward the back of the head. Process for 5 minutes, then apply Formula 6 to the remainder of the hair (from mid-length to ends). Process for 10 minutes, then shampoo and condition with K-PAK® Color Therapy. For an added boost of shine, treat hair to K-PAK Color Therapy Luster Lock Instant Shine & Repair Treatment or Luster Lock Multi- Perfector Daily Protect & Shine Spray. Blow-dry hair and style as desired.
