RETOUCH

Step 1:
  • Divide the head into 4 quadrants: left and right front, and left and right back.
  • Beginning at the top of the right front section, apply the Retouch Formula (2 oz. 4Bc + 2 oz. 20 volume Pro-oxide Cream Developer) to Zone 1; continue the application in all four sections. Set the timer for 25 minutes.
  • When the timer rings, re-set the time for 10 minutes and apply the remaining Retouch Formula (2 oz. 4Bc + 2 oz. 20 volume Pro-oxide Cream Developer) through random sections in Zones 2 and 3. Tip: Applying color randomly in Zones 2 and 3 retains some of the existing color, enhancing dimension.
  • When the timer rings, rinse, shampoo and condition with Color Extend. Gently dry the hair.
  • Step 2:
  • Separate the front from the back with a parting that moves from the high point of the head to the top of each ear. Make a front center part, creating two sections. Split each of these sections in half, ending with 4 triangle sections in the front. Tip: Use a clip or ponytail to isolate sections, control hair and keep sections neat
  • Create three triangle sections in the back, using the occipital bone as the base and the high point of the head as the point.
  • HIGHLIGHTS

    Step 1:
  • Begin highlight application in the left front triangle. Remove hair from ponytail or clip. Take a 1/4" slight diagonal slice from just above hairline. Split this slice in half, allowing the left portion to fall. Place a foil under the remaining hair, apply Highlight Formula 1 (2 scoops Up to 7 De-dusted Lightener + 2 oz. 20 volume Pro-oxide Cream Developer) from scalp to ends and cover with foil. Leaving a 1/4" section in-between, take another 1/4" diagonal slice. Split this slice in half, allowing the right portion to fall. Place a foil under the remaining hair and apply Highlight Formula 2 (2 scoops Up to 7 De-dusted Lightener + 2 oz. 30 volume Pro-oxide Cream Developer); cover with foil. Continue this application in the same manner until the section is complete. Move to the right front triangle and complete; be sure to alternate formulas and drop the side of each slice. Complete the remaining front triangles.
  • Step 2:
  • Repeat this technique in the back. Begin in the left back triangle, moving to the right and finishing at the center.
    Tip: Completing the sections in this order results in lighter pieces near the face and sides, with the darker toward the center back.
  • Step 3:
  • On select surface strands, apply Highlight Formula 2 (2 scoops Up to 7 De-dusted Lightener + 2 oz. 30 volume Pro-oxide Cream Developer), from mid-shaft to ends, using the Redken Etching Wand. Focus on hair remaining between foils.
  • Process until the foils and select strands reach a level 7 orange undertone. Rinse, shampoo and condition with Color Extend. Gently dry the hair.
  • GLAZE
  • Divide the head into 4 quadrants and begin at the top right side. Taking 1/4" partings, apply Glaze Formula 1 (2 oz. 07GB Butterscotch + 2 oz. Shades EQ Processing Solution) to Zone 1. Then immediately return to your starting point and bring the mixture into Zone 2. Apply Glaze Formula 2 (1 oz. 07GB Butterscotch + 1 oz. 000 Crystal Clear + 2 oz. Shades EQ Processing Solution) to Zone 3.
  • Process for 15 to 20 minutes at room temperature; rinse and shampoo with Color Extend.
