TECHNICAL STEPS

  • Step 1

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

  • Step 2

    Take a large irregular section from the profile, starting 2 inches away from the hairline, finishing at the top of the ear. Subdivide the section for ease of application.

  • Step 3

    Repeat the same process on the opposite side. This creates a total of 4 sections around the front hairline.

  • Step 4

    To continue, take a curved section starting from radial to radial, incorporating the crown area. Secure all sections with TIGI Pro sectioning clips.

  • Step 5

    Take horizontal partings through the back section and apply Formula 1 from new growth to lengths and ends.

  • Step 6

    To complete the section, continue working in the same way.

  • Step 7

    Progressing onto the top section, take horizontal partings and apply Formula 2 from the new growth to the lengths and ends. Complete the section.

  • Step 8

    Proceed onto the perimeter section. Take diagonal partings and apply Formula 2 to the new growth. Use freehand blending and apply Formula 3 to the lengths and ends. Continue until the section is complete.

  • Step 9

    Repeat the same process on the opposite side. Process the colour for up to up 20 minutes, then emulsify, rinse and remove using Bed Head Dumb Blonde shampoo and conditioner. Tone the pre-lightened sections using Formula 3a. Process visually up to 20 minutes, then emulsify, rinse and remove using the Dumb Blonde range.
