Sectioning 

  • Create a profile parting from the center of the forehead to the nape of the neck and a radial parting from the control point to behind the ears, separating the hair into quadrants. (Fig. A-B)

Application

  • Working in the back quadrants, work left to right starting at the top of the occipital bone, apply Formula 1 in horizontal extra fine stitches. Apply highlights in a brick lay pattern up to the radial parting. Isolate with the double fold foil method. (Fig. C)
  • Moving to the front right quadrant, apply Formula 1 in diagonal back extra fine stitches, working up to the part line. Isolate with the double fold foil method. (Fig. D)
  • Repeat technique on the opposite side of the head.
  • Process to desired level of lightness and rinse and remove.

Colorist Tips

  • Distribute the product evenly from retouch to ends for complete saturation within the highlight.
  • Babylights can be achieved with foils or open-air lightening techniques.

 Removal and Rinising 

  • Wet, emulsify, rinse and shampoo twice with L’Oréal Professionnel Post Color Shampoo.
  • Condition and lock in the color with Série Expert Powerdose Color A·OX in-salon treatment.
