Step 4: Shampoo and blow dry.
Step 5: Section the hair in quadrants. Start weaving 1/2-inch sections starting in the back. If you want to have a pretty dramatic look, go for thicker weaves.
Step 6: Tease the hair about 5 times from mid-shaft to root - the more the better.
Step 7: Apply another lightener but with a 20-volume developer on the ends. Use the brush to give downward strokes to feather the color.

Step 9: Lift the Ombré highlights until desired height is achieved.
