- Create an oval-shaped segment starting about 1 1⁄2 inches from the front hairline, all the way around the head.
- Begin the application in the front, taking 1⁄2-inch diagonal sections, with a teasy highlight technique using Formula 1. Work up to the top of the segment and mirror on the opposite side.
- Move to the back segment, working diagonally from the corner of the nape. Take 1⁄2-inch diagonal sections with the same teasy highlight technique using Formula 1. Continue foiling until you reach the top of the segment and mirror on the other side.
- Move to the top segment. Working in a chevron pattern, take 1⁄2-inch diagonal sections, tease and apply Formula 2.
- Process for 55 minutes, rinse and shampoo with Paul Mitchell® Color Protect® Post Color Shampoo.
