How To: Peacock-Inspired Color Formula For MenAPPLICATION
Beginning at the nape, create a one inch section and apply Formula 1 from roots to mids. Begin working up toward the front, alternating all of the formulas from roots to mids. Carefully wipe gloves between each section application. Once all sections are saturated, return to the nape and begin alternating the formulas on each section from mids to ends. Carefully "melt" the color where the two formulas meet in the middle. Work quickly and without foils.
