Steps to get the look
1 Begin by sectioning a crescent shape on each side of the head, just above the partial ridge.
2 Section another crescent section just above each ear.
3 Create your third crescent section close to the hairline, pointing away from the temple.
4 Use a freehand ribboning technique to create pops of colour using formula A and B alternately.
5 Refresh the mid-lengths and ends with formula C for 20 minutes.
6 Styling: To keep her hair feeling in great condition and to shield against heat damage, Miracle Creator 20 was applied to damp hair before blow drying.
