How to get the romantic colour

The recipe for Natural level 7/4
Formula 1: System Professional Repair Conditioner Mask 80g
Crazy Colour Orange 30g
Crazy Colour Pinkissimo 5g

1. Start by pre-shampooing the hair, towel dry and comb through.

2. Starting at the nape, take 1-2cm alternate horizontal slices and apply formula 1 from the roots through the lengths and ends. Continue working through towards the crown.

3. From the crown area, take 1-2cm diagonal back slices towards the hairline, applying formula 1 to the roots through the lengths and ends. Once complete, leave to develop for 30 minutes, rinse and remove.


How to style romantic waves

1 Apply mousse to towel-dried hair and blow dry. Once almost dry, re-apply more mousse until the hair is back to a wet stage for a thicker and coarser feel.

2 Finish drying hair using a bristle brush for shine.

3 Crimp the hair until below the temple area, this helps to add volume and structure to the style.

4 Begin sectioning the hair one-inch size sections, then tong each side vertically in the same direction towards the back of the head.

5 Starting at the nape, brush each section through working through the crimped area. When brushing the curls through, be patient until all the hair locks together.

6 Finish with hairspray and shine spray.
