1. Take a halo section along the crown and place in foil. Using Formula 1, pre-lighten the halo section and the fringe area by gently feathering it toward the base. To create depth at the base, stay ½-inch away from the scalp. Process 30 minutes, shampoo and dry.
2. Next, apply Formula 2 to the pre-lightened sections, from the base to the midshaft.
3. Then apply Formula 3 on the ends. Process 30 minutes. Shampoo, condition and style.
