 How-to:

  1. Apply BASE Color in traditional manner. BASE 1 at root area. BASE 2 through mid lengths and ends. Process 30 minutes. R/S/C Blow dry
  2. Paint. Throught the head, customize and paint the canvas over BASE shade using the volume technique from CoCre8. This is formed using "V" shapes, panels, and points, in rotation, leaving hair in between each paint zone. Process 30 minutes. R/S/C Blow dry
  3. Glaze. Take 4 Deep Zig-Zag sections at nape to occipital, occipital to crown, part line and hairline
  4. Alternate GLAZE 1 and GLAZE 2 in each zone. This creates a multidimensional glaze to illuminate the volume in the color.
  5. Process 20 minutes with or without heat. R/S/C

Look 3: Bright Blonde Bun

LIFT: L’ANZA Powder Decolorizer + 20 vol. (6%) - to clean 9/10

A platinumizer is a slow moving alkaline pastel used to neutralize warmth from cortex out.
BASE SHADOW: L’ANZA VIBES (direct dyes) - SMOKE + CLEAR S= 5g C= 40g
MID SHADOW: L’ANZA VIBES (direct dyes) - BLUE + CLEAR + SMOKE B=.5g C=30g S=5g
ENDS: L’ANZA VIBES (direct dyes) - CLEAR + VIOLET C= 30g V= .5g

How-to:

  1. Lift the canvas to a clean level 9/10. Treate the zones with correct lift tool to prevent banding. Process R/S/C
  2. Apply Platinumizer to clean, damp hair. This cools off and drives excess warmth out of the cortex. This also ensures color longevity. Process 5-10 minutes. R/S/C
  3. Apply BASE SHADOW. Only draw up as amuch color as needed to prevent color bleeding. Saturate.
  4. In triangular sections, saturate middle with MID SHADOW COLOR. Diffuse with the side of your brush for seamless blend.
  5. At tips of triangle, apply and blend ENDS color.

  2. By applying a total of 10 foils in the correct places, you will achieve the look of a heavier application:
    2 horizontally on frontal slop
    2 horizontally at crown
    2 across the round of lid on a diagonal
    2 vertically on each side of the top application
