Step 1: Apply Formula 1 to all hair, using a double-process application.

Step 2: Create an elongated diamond shape—keep the top point even with the top of the right ear and the bottom point even with the end of the left eyebrow. Leave out roughly ¼ to ½ inch of the front hairline, depending on the hair’s density. Then release a ½-inch sliced section in front of the diamond and apply Formula 2. Work through the entire diamond shape in this manner.

Step 3: Glaze all remaining hair with Formula 3. Process for 15-20 minutes. Rinse the foils until the water runs clear, then rinse the rest of the head. Condition with Semi Di Lino Nutrative Mask, but do not shampoo.
