Before starting your T section, ensure a thorough consultation including hair growth patterns and the clients position of the parting. This may affect the placement of sectioning.

 The hair is neatly divided into 4 sections. The parting section is evenly placed through the parting at the top of the head, one continuing to the crown and a section either side above the ear. Ensure that your section is no wider than a foil, with even width.

The crown section is your first section to weave. The thickness of the weave will be dependent on the hair texture, density and desired effect. 
Starting at the bottom of the section take a slice of hair with the pin tail comb. Weave the tail of the comb through the slice in an up and down motion until an even weave is achieved.

 

 Keeping the comb in your hand, place the woven slice of hair onto the matte side of the foil and lie the hair flat against the head.

 Using a small amount of product on your tint brush, stroke colour from the root to ends, leaving a small gap at the top of the foil to avoid colour seepage onto the root area.  Lightening product should not be overlapped onto pre-lightened hair and only painted onto virgin hair.

 With the pin tail comb, secure your foil into place with a half way up towards the root and then fold in each side to secure the packet in place during development. Repeat the process by taking a new slice and weaving out an even weave on your next section. This time, leave the woven hair out of the packet as natural hair left in-between the packets. This will result in a natural effect.

 Once the back section is complete, follow the same process through the side sections, starting at the bottom at the ear and working up to your parting section.

 On completion of side sections, a slice is then taken to weave from the parting section at the crown. Working towards the half way of the section. Once half way, get your client to face you and then work from the front of the hairline through the remaining hair. The parting is done last, unless the hair in this area is resistant.

On completion, the hair through the top and side are foiled, leaving the hair in between out.
The colour is now allowed to develop according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Please note that added heat should be avoided when using lightener to avoid expansion and seepage.
