  1. Divide hair from the parietal ridge down and from the base of the crown to the nape.
  2. Starting at the hairline, take a diagonal-back slice if hair is fine or a woven section if hair is denser. Apply Formula 1 at the top of the foil, then blend in Formula 2 through the ends.
  3. Continue around the head, maintaining diagonal foil placement within triangular forms and leave centers out.
  4. Once foils are complete, use Formula 3 to balayage all interior triangles that were left out.
  5. While foils are processing, apply Formula 4 to remaining hair left out of the foils in the top section. Process until desired lift is achieved. Then cleanse and condition.
  6. Now apply Formula 5 to the highlighted areas. Process for 20 minutes, then cleanse and condition.
