  • Step 1

    Pre-lighten canvas with Formula A, applying to deepest areas first, using a color board and working quickly. Process 15 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Shampoo with Keratin Complex Timeless Color™ Fade-Defy Shampoo. Then, create 3 rounded triangle sections with the points starting at the crown.

  • Step 3

    In the triangular sections, alternate Formulas B, C and D on ¼-inch subsections, using back-to-back slices. Do not fold the foils. After the application is complete, roll the foils as one unit to ensure even uptake.

  • Step 4

    Around the foiled sections, apply Formula E from scalp to mid-length, angling the tint brush in varying ways for a feathering effect. Then, marry Formula F from mid-length to end. Process 35 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Shampoo the hair with Timeless Color shampoo, then towel-dry. Apply Formula G to entire head and process for 20 minutes.
