Start by applying your lightening formula to zones 2 and 3, placing formula slightly higher near the face to frame and brighten your client’s face. During the last 15 minutes of the lightening process, apply CGL10 to zone 1, dragging down slightly for a soft, blended result. After removing color, apply Shades EQ Gloss to add shine and neutralize any unwanted tones.
