TECHNICAL STEPS

  • Step 1

    Create a profile parting from the forehead finishing at the top crown.

  • Step 2

    Create a circular section from the profile parting sitting 2 inches back from the hairline, finishing at the high recession. Continue by taking a larger circular section from the high recession, finishing behind the ear and secure with TIGI PRO Sectioning Clips.

  • Step 3

    In total, this creates two sections around the perimeter. Repeat the same process on the opposite side. Create a horizontal parting from radial to radial at the low crown and secure the back two sections with TIGI PRO Sectioning Clips. This creates a total of six sections.

  • Step 4

    Put on protective gloves. Start by taking a horizontal parting and apply Formula 1 to the new growth area through to the lengths and ends. Protect the nape area using a TIGI copyright©olour meche strip. Continue working through to low crown.

  • Step 5

    From the low crown take horizontal partings and apply Formula 1 to the new growth area through to midlengths. With a freehand blending technique, apply Formula 2 to the lengths and ends. Isolate the section using a TIGI copyright©olour meche strip.

  • Step 6

    Progressing into the side circular section, take a slight diagonal parting. Apply Formula 1 to the new growth area through to the mid-lengths. With a freehand blending technique apply Formula 3 to the lengths and ends. Isolate the section using a TIGI copyright©olour meche strip. Once complete, repeat on the opposite side.

  • Step 7

    Progress into the last section, take fine slices and apply Formula 1 to new growth area through to mid-lengths. With a freehand blending technique, apply Formula 3 to the lengths and ends. Isolate section using TIGI copyright©olour meche strips. Repeat the same process on the opposite side.

  • Step 8

    In between each slice, apply Formula 1 on the new growth area through to the mid-lengths. Process the colour for 20 minutes, then emulsify, rinse and remove using Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Shampoo and Conditioner. Tone the pre-lightened sections with Formula 4, process visually for up to 20 minutes, then emulsify, rinse and remove.
