Step 1: Using the balayage technique, create shadows and lighter highlights in wide horizontal sections. Base color:  L'Oréal Professionnel Dialights 7 with 9 volume developer.

Step 2: To the lengths apply Mulitechniques powder with 40 volume and Olaplex. 

Step 3: Process for 45 minutes. Shampoo.

Step 4: Tone with equal parts Dialights 9.11 and 10.21 blended with 6 volume for 10 minutes.
