GET THE LOOK: Shine Line

STEP 1: Create a triangle that extends from the outside of the corner of each eye to top of head. Clip for control.

STEP 2: Starting approximately 1 inch from the hairline, take a horizontal slice and place on foil. Using a side-brushing technique, apply formula to mid-section only. This technique is designed to accent the shine line.

STEP 3: Working your way up, continue to take horizontal slices and lay directly on top of previous section. Using previous section as a guide, repeat application of formula in same manner. Lay foil on top to protect and process accordingly.

STEP 4: Rinse thoroughly, cleanse and condition.

Pro Tip: For a more subtle shine line, do not color the last top section of hair. Protect the uncolored hair by placing a foil beneath the last section.
