TECHNICAL STEPS

  • STEP 1

    The hair was pre-lightened using Formula 1 before applying a toning technique to towel-dried hair.

  • STEP 2

    Create a profile parting, followed by a radial parting. Create a semi-circular section working back from the radial parting, incorporating the crown area.

  • STEP 3

    Next, create an irregular square section on either side of the profile parting, finishing 2 inches above the ear on each side and 2 inches back from the hairline. Secure sections with TIGI PRO sectioning clips.

  • STEP 4

    Put on protective gloves, take a centre profile parting from the crown to the nape, and starting at the nape take horizontal slices and apply Formula 2 from the roots to the ends. Repeat on the opposite side.

  • STEP 5

    Working from the radial towards the hair line, take ½ inch vertical slices applying Formula 2 from the roots through to the mid-lengths and ends.

  • STEP 6

    Repeat the same technique to the opposite side and isolate using TIGI copyright©olour meche strips.

  • STEP 7

    Progressing into the crown area, sub-divide the section into 2 for ease of application. Take horizontal slices applying Formula 2 to the roots, blending Formula 3 through the mid-lengths and ends until the section is complete. Repeat on the opposite side and isolate using TIGI copyright©olour meche strips.

  • STEP 8

    Within the remaining 2 sections, take horizontal slices applying Formula 2 to the roots, blending Formula 3 through to the mid-lengths and ends.

  • STEP 9

    Process visually for up to 20 minutes, then emulsify, rinse and remove using Bed Head by TIGI Urban Antidotes Recovery shampoo and conditioner.
