Prep the hair by spraying Purify and Revive PRIME generously throughout the hair, combing through for even distribution and allowing to sit for 3 minutes (no rinsing or shampoo required). This will diminish any hard water minerals prior to any chemical service.
Minerals are found in 85% of household water which can cause lightener to puff and swell or color to take inaccurately.
Take a radial parting from behind the ear to behind the ear. In the front section, take horizontal partings at the parietal ridge on each side to create two side sections and one mohawk section. In the back, take a horizontal parting at the top of the occipital bone, then divide the hair above it horizontally to create two 3” crown sections above the occipital bone leaving the hair out underneath as your first section.
As you create each section, wrap them into a knot so you can secure them up and out of your way as you work.
Beginning in the lower back section at the top of the occipital bone, take horizontal sections and utilizing an open-air balayage free-hand painting technique, create “V” and “W” shapes to cover ground quickly for a natural lightening effect.
Work in a bricklay pattern to avoid laying lightened sections over sections left untouched for pockets of depth.
Moving to the side sections working in the same balayage fashion, paint slanted patterns to create high points around the face.
With a light touch, feather your lightener up to blend into the root area.
In the mohawk section, utilize a detailed French Balayage technique directing 1” subsections back, and hand painting highlights until reaching the face frame.
Process at room temperature until you reach a Level 9. Shampoo with PRAVANA’s Intense Therapy Cleanse, then apply PRAVANA’s Silk Degrees Prep and Treat for 5 minutes. Rinse and dry the hair completely.
Divide the hair into the PRAVANA Standard 4 quadrants and apply Formula 1 as a base in a teardrop pattern dragging it down 3”, then apply Formula 2 to the mid-lengths and ends blending the transition point.
Drag the base color down further in the back and just tap it towards the front for a brighter face frame.
Process 30 minutes at room temperature, then Cleanse and Condition with PRAVANA’s Color Protect Regimen. Style as desired.
