4. Section the top out, from the recession, along the parietal ridge to just below the crown. Alternate Formula 2 and Formula 3, making sure to create odd sections. That way the same color will appear in each side of the front hairline. Blend the formulas where they meet.

5. In the last, top section, part out about 1” of the fringe in the front hairline. Apply Formula 3 through the remaining pre-lightened ends. Blend the formulas where they meet.

6. Apply Formula 2 through the pre-lightened ends of the fringe.

6. Finish braiding through the length of the hair.

7. Secure the ends with an elastic band, leaving a small strand of hair out. Wrap the strand around the elastic band, then secure with a bobby pin.

8. Sprinkle NEVO Lived-In directly onto the completed braid and pat into the hair. Gently pull the braid strands out to fatten and add volume to the braid.
