1. Take a parting from behind the right ear to the center nape, in order to create a triangular section in the back-right corner. Create a second, front triangular section by taking a part just in front of the left ear, angling it toward the fringe area and stopping at the center of the fringe.
2. Apply Formula 1 to both triangular sections by taking fine slices and applying from base to ends. Do not skip any hair in-between slices. Process until you reach level 9, pale yellow, then shampoo and dry.
3. Next, apply Formula 2 to the pre-lightened areas.
4. Then apply Formula 3 to the rest of the hair. Process 30 minutes.
