  • Step 1

    To begin, take a center profile parting from the forehead to the nape, then create a radial parting on each side of the head.

  • Step 2

    Start 0.5 inch away from the hairline and take a rectangular shape towards the radial section, 1 inch under the profile parting, sitting 1.5inch above the ear.

  • Step 3

    Repeat on the other side and clip away the remaining hair using TIGI Pro sectioning clips. You will now have a total of 8 sections.

  • Step 4

    Take a horizontal parting at the nape area and apply Formula 1 to the new growth through to the mid-lengths and ends of the first 2 partings on each side.

  • Step 5

    From the third parting, apply Formula 1 to the new growth, and using a freehand blending technique, alternate between Formula 2 & 3 through the ends. Continue working the same way until the section is completed.

  • Step 6

    Progressing onto the side section, take a horizontal parting and with a freehand blending technique apply Formula 1 to the new growth area and Formula 2 to the lengths and ends.

  • Step 7

    Moving onto the rectangular section take a 0.5 inch deep parting and apply Formula 1 to the new growth (0.5 inch deep) then apply Formula 3 through the mid-lengths and ends. Repeat on the other side.

  • Step 8

    For the remaining 2 sections, at the top crown area, apply Formula 1 to the new growth and Formula 2 to the mid-lengths and ends.

  • Step 9

    Process the colour for up to 40 minutes. Emulsify, rinse and remove using the Bed Head Colour Goddess range. Apply Formula 3a to the pre-lightened areas and process for up to 20 minutes. Remove using Bed Head Colour Goddess range.
