“This Contour Lightening technique is perfect for the client wanting a couture colour. The lighter canvas around the front area creates details that accentuates the face and enhances the complexion,” says TIGI US Technical Creative Director Richy Kandasamy. The technique uses four different lighter colours variants to create a contouring effect, defining the shape of the hair and promoting shine.

This technique uses 3 different lighter colour variants to create a contouring effect, defining the shape of the hair and promoting shine.

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

2. Start by taking an irregular C section, starting 2 inches back from the hairline, finishing at the nape area. Secure with a TIGI PRO Sectioning Clip.

3. Repeat the same process on the opposite side and secure with a TIGI PRO Sectioning Clip.

4. Through the back area, secure the remaining hair using a TIGI PRO Sectioning Clip. In total, this creates three sections. Put on protective gloves.

5. Start the application through the C section. Take a 1-inch deep irregular parting. Apply Formula 1 from the new growth area through to the mid- lengths. With a free-hand blending technique, apply Formula 2 to the lengths and ends. Isolate using a TIGI colour meche strip.

6. From the third slice, apply Formula
1 from the new growth area through to the mid-lengths. With a free-hand blending technique, apply Formula 3 to the lengths and ends. Isolate using a TIGI colour meche strip, repeat the same on the opposite side.

7. Progress into the last remaining section, take horizontal partings and apply Formula 1 from the new growth area through to the lengths and ends.

8. Continue in the same way until the section is completed.

9. Process the colour for 20minutes, then emulsify, rinse and remove using Catwalk Headshot Shampoo and Conditioner. Then tone the pre- lightened sections through the sides using Formula 4. Process visually for up to 20 minutes, then emulsify, rinse and remove, using Catwalk Headshot Shampoo and Conditioner.

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

2. Create a circular section from the profile parting sitting 2 inches back from the hairline, finishing at the
