LumiShine Permanent Creme Color
STEP 1: SECTIONING
Part the hair down the center and create three sections: one on each side of the face (from the back of the ears forward) and one in the back. Create a V-shaped section at the bottom of the back section, then pin the rest of the hair out of the way.
Carve out a section, lay it on a foil and apply Formula 1. Repeat on the opposite side.
Take a horizontal slice section above the V; weave the hair and apply Formula 1. Be sure to fully saturate the ends with Formula 1.
Repeat, taking a V-shaped section above that, then weave and apply Formula 1.
Clip this foil out of the way, then use the “slice, skip, slice” technique to separate another section. Apply Formula 2, leaving the ends out of the foil.
From this point, create a bricklay effect by repeating Steps 1-3 until you reach the top of the head.
STEP 7: SIDES
Take a small section that’s 3 inches wide from the front fringe area and clip it out of the way for now. Take a section along the hairline that extends from the top of the temple to the bottom of the ear, then do a fine weave with Formula 1. Take another section behind the previous and repeat the process. Continue using Formula 1 on the pieces close to the face.
Take another section, then weave and apply Formula 1. Pin section out of the way, then do a slice with Formula 2.
Continue working in slightly diagonal sections to create a bricklay effect until you reach the top.
Repeat the process on the opposite side.
STEP 11: FRINGE
Take fine horizontal sections, weaving close to the front of the head with Formula 1.
