Hair How-to Rocking Red

Slice a horizontal section across the fringe approximately from middle eyebrow to middle eyebrow.  Section should be between 1/16 to 1/8 thick depending on hair texture.  There should be a thin slice of hair left at the hairline.   Apply Pure Light power lightener mixed with appropriate developer, just off scalp through ends on foil.
Continuing at the same angle, slice another section ¼ inch under and 1/2 inch into the last foil.  Apply Pure Light mixture just off the scalp through the ends on foil.  Same section will be repeated on opposite side. Total foils: 7-9. 

A glaze of  Pravana Chromasilk Creme Hair Color is placed on remaining hair.
Mix 1 oz 5N + 1 oz 5 R with  2 1/2 oz  Pravana Zero Lift Developer.
Once color is done processing and the hair in foil has lifted to desired level, shampoo, condition the hair with Pravana Color Ensure. This enriched formula will extend color protection and further revitalize and hydrate color-treated hair.

Dry the hair and overlay pre-lightened pieces with RED Chroma Silk Vivids and process 20 minutes. Shampoo and Condition. 
Hair is micro crimped to create an interesting texture for a modern finish. Comparing the hair to fabric, this technique this will build bulk and morph fine silk strands into pliable corduroy. 
Begin at the bottom and work your way up using small sections.
Pravana Super Shape Hair Spray provides heat protection and ultimate shine.
