1. Section the hair and identify the natural parting so you know what section to isolate. Apply formula 1 to the right side of the head. Work horizontally up the head using a medium weave and x12 foils.

2. Apply formula 2 on the left-hand side of the head working horizontally with a slice. Develop for up to 20 minutes under heat or 30-40 minutes without heat.

3. Rinse, shampoo and apply Blondor Seal & Care for 5 minutes and rinse. Towel dry and apply formula 3 at the backwash section-by-section all over. Develop for 5-10 minutes. Rinse and apply INVIGO Post Color Treatment for 5 minutes. Style as needed. 

"This result shows grey blending is not always about going lighter. It can be a combination of adding depth and tone whilst working with accent areas of lightness and grey to accentuate the haircut."
