Before you begin coloring, divide your hair into four sections. Start by parting your hair down the center. Then split each half with an additional part line that runs across the top of your head from the top of one ear to the top of the other ear. Use clips to hold these sections in place as you color each section. If you do not have clips, you can buy a set of professional color clips in the Madison Reed accessories section of our site. Watch any of our instruction videos for additional information.
