Formula One: CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener + 30 Volume CHI Color Generator (Mixing Ratio 1:1.5)

 Formula Two: CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener + 40 Volume CHI Color Generator (Mixing Ratio 1:1.5)

 Formula Three: CHI Shine Shades 8V + CHI Shine Shades Clear + 10 Volume CHI Color Generator (Mixing Ratio 1:1:1)

Step One: Apply CHI Bond & Seal Treatment from scalp to ends.

 Artist Tip: Use a paddle brush after adding CHI Bond & Seal Treatment to remove tangles and to achieve a more even distribution.

 Step Two: Using Formula One, do a zigzag part from the apex down to behind-the-ear on both sides of the head. Leave the back as a third section. This will make three full sections.

Step Three: Starting at the temple area, take a diagonal section approximately ¼ in width.

Step Four: Back comb the roots.

 Artist Tip: Apply CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener to the foils prior. Then apply additional product over the hair strand.

Step Five: Just under the back combed section, apply a generous amount of CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener by pushing the product into the hair.

 Artist Tip: To add extra dimension, concentrate on the mid-shaft pushing the product into the hair. Keep foils neatly folded for secure placement.

Step Six: Keep taking diagonal sections on both sides of the head.

Step Seven: Using Formula Two, start in the nape area, and take two V-shaped sections. Using horizontal sections, back comb and apply CHI Bleach & Shine Lightener from mid-shaft to ends. Finish the crown of the head with diagonal sections.

 Step Eight: Rinse well, and use your favorite CHI Shampoo and CHI Conditioner.

Step Nine: Apply Formula Three to desired areas for 15 minutes. Rinse, shampoo, condition, and style as desired.

Melissa Gonzalez Recap: The Art and Science of Hair Color – Sombre

Elite Artist and Educator Melissa Gonzalez was able to create subtle brightness for her model by using the CHI Infra High Lift Colors. She shared some amazing tips on how to achieve the perfect Sombre color using a creative hand painting technique.

Color Formula: 1 oz. CHI Infra High Lift Cream Color in BB + ½ oz. 20 Volume CHI Color Generator + ½ oz. 30 Volume CHI Color Generator.

Step One: Section hair into 4 equal quadrants. Starting in the nape, take ½ inch diagonal subsections. Hand paint color in a “V” pattern taking color higher and lower to create dimension and movement. Continue until you reach the front fringe area.

Artist Tip: When applying the color you can brush up the section with your color brush in a “backcombing” motion to create more of an even blend in the final result.

Step Two:  Pick up front fringe area straight up at a 90 degree angle, over direct back and paint the color on in the “V” pattern getting closer to the roots to create brightness around the face.

Step Three: Process at room temperature for 20 minutes. Rinse the hair until water runs clear, shampoo with CHI Infra Shampoo and condition using the CHI Infra Color Lock Treatment for 5 minutes. Style as desired.
