STEP 1. Create a thin, hourglass-shaped section from center front to center back, keeping the wide ends at the hairline. Isolate this section.

STEP 2. Starting on the right side of the head, create opposing triangular sections in a radial pattern around the ear. Isolate each triangle with elastics near the top of the section, dropping 1/4” lower with each triangle. Be sure to alternate the wide end and narrow end of the triangles with each section.

STEP 3. Apply Formula A to each ponytail using thin sections and placing foil between. Process at room temperature until hair has reached a Level 7. Cleanse and condition with Healing ColorCare Shampoo and Conditioner, then blow- dry.

STEP 4. Spray Color Attach Step-1 in the hair and leave in. Working with diagonal back sections, apply Formula B to the first 4” of the hair, Formula C through the mid-lengths, and Formula B through the ends. Using a L’ANZA Color Board, blend the formulas together and isolate with foil. Continue moving through each section until all the hair has been colored.

HOT TIP: The L’ANZA Color Board will help optimize color saturation and control.

STEP 5. Process at room temperature for 35 minutes, and rinse.  cleanse with Healing ColorCare Shampoo, then spray Color Attach Step 2 into towel-dried hair, and comb through.

STEP 6. Apply Keratin Healing Oil Emergency Service Part-A. Cover hair with plastic cap and place under heat for 10 minutes, then rinse. 

STEP 7. Apply Keratin Healing Oil Emergency Service Part-B, comb through, and leave in.
