1. Establish a 2-inch section at the front hairline to the top of the ear with a diagonal-zigzag parting. Then section the center top, starting at the crown and moving to just behind the top of the ear. Use a drop-diagonal zigzag pattern. Then drop the front section, apply Formula 1 and cover it.
2. Drop down the top-center section next and apply Formula 2, blending it to the midshaft area. Process about 35 minutes, until the top section reaches level 9. Then rinse with lukewarm water until the water runs clear; shampoo and re-rinse.
3. Use Formula 3 to tone from the scalp to the midshaft. Be sure to fully saturate the hair, blending the front and top sections with your fingers. Process 20 minutes, then rinse as before. Cleanse and rinse; do not condition.
4. Following the pre-lightened sections, paint Formula 4 on the front section, Formula 5 on the center top section and Formula 6 on the back. Completely saturate the end sections and blend toward the scalp for a dramatic effect. Process 30 minutes, then rinse as before. Seal and condition, then rinse and towel dry.
