Pro Tip

Minerals are found in 85% of household water which can cause lightener to puff and swell or color to take inaccurately.

Step 2: Section

Divide the hair into the PRAVANA standard four quadrants by taking a radial parting from behind the ear to behind the ear and a second parting from nose to nape.

Pro Tip

If your client has gold banding from previous applications, stretch the lightener application over the band to even out the hair.

Process up to 55 minutes checking every 5 to 10 minutes. Cleanse the hair with PRAVANA Intense Therapy Cleanse. Rinse, towel-dry and apply Silk Degrees Prep & Treat for 5 minutes at the basin to equalize the porosity and provide anchoring sites for your color application.

Step 4: Toning

Apply the Toning formula from roots to ends.

Process 5 minutes at room temperature. Rinse and dry the hair completely making it as smooth as possible, flat-ironing if necessary.

Step 5: Holographic Color Application

Divide the hair into the PRAVANA standard four quadrants as in Step 2. Beginning in one of the front quadrants, find the natural part and take a horizontal parting about one inch below creating a rectangle. Holding the rectangle in its natural fall and beginning ¼” down from the top of the rectangle, paint ¼” stripes alternating the three VIVIDS Formulas, leaving a little space in between each stripe, and repeat on the other side. (Just one on each side).

Pro Tip
