When coloring a client’s gray or white hair, root touch-ups are at the center of the entire process. Using his new launch #LiftMeUp, Guy Tang created this how-to video to demonstrate a one-step process for base color and gray coverage.

Get The Look
Step 1: Base Formula
Mix these products to cover gray rootage.
- 5NI Natural Ice
- 7GG Permanent Gold Gold
- 7CRC Copper Red Copper
- 30V Thicc Balayage Activator
- 10V Developer #MyHero Collagen Powder
- Dash of Olaplex
Apply this formula at the parting where you see gray hair most. Make sure you apply the color immediately after mixing it. Move quickly and cross-check your coverage when done.
Step 2: Highlight Formula
Mix these products for the highlights.
- #LiftMeUp Empower Oil Lift Booster
- #LiftMeUp Passion Bright Blonde Liquid Toner
- 20V Developer
- #Magnum8 Powder Lightener (or #Big9 Crème Lightener)
- #MyHero Collagen Powder
Step 3: Lowlight Formula
Mix these products for the lowlights.
Part hair with thin rat-tail comb and apply highlight formula over base color. Use different color foils to distinguish between the highlight and lowlight formulas.
Apply the lowlight formula on a section of hair right above the highlighted section. Use a different color foil. Leave a small portion of hair in between the highlighted and lowlighted sections to maintain a base formula layer.
Repeat foilling until you reach the top.
Step 7 (Midnight Formula):
Mix these products for the midlight formula.
Apply this formula to the base color layers left outside the highlight/lowlight foils.
Let the color process for 30 minutes.
