  1. Balayage all hair using Whittemore House Clay Lightener. Process 20 minutes, then rinse and shampoo.

Take horizontal zigzag sections within them as you apply the Formula 1 shades working down the lengths. First, apply Smoke Screen to the base area. Then blend Divine Wine into the Smoke Screen and continue down the lengths approximately 6 inches. Next, blend in Red Velvet and continue down another 6 inches, before blending in Solar Yellow and extending it to the ends.
  3. Now, move up the head and repeat taking 1-inch bands and horizontal zigzags within them. Apply the Formula 2 shades in sections, working down the hair. First, apply Smoke Screen to the base area. Then blend Celestine Blue into the Smoke Screen and bring it down 6 inches. Next, blend in Serpentine Green and extend it for another 6 inches before blending in Solar Yellow and extending it to the ends.
  4. Continue alternating formulas using this application pattern throughout the head. Then process as desired.
