Highlighting Horror Story (02:58)
In one publicized case a client was injured when bleach leaked through a worn-out cap. Check hair after 15 minutes when using bleach.
Pulling Hair Though Cap Holes (05:44)
Mcloughlin demonstrates how to put a cap on the client and techniques for using a hooked needle or crochet hook.
Technique #1: Alternating Rows (04:28)
Pull hair through the cap in alternating rows and holes. Take extra hair in the fringe area.
Technique #2: Clusters (02:07)
For a less structured look, pull hair through holes in groups of five.
Technique #3: Alternating Holes (03:29)
In a brickwork pattern, pull hair through alternating holes in each row. Hold the cap to prevent movement.
Technique #4: Every Hole (03:16)
Pull hair through each hole of the cap in this quadrant.
Mixing Color (05:29)
Wear a protective apron and gloves. For this demonstration, Mcloughlin mixes equal parts of color and peroxide.

Use a brush to quickly paint on tint. Comb through hair for even distribution then apply a second application. Leave to develop per package instructions.
Checking Hair (01:52)
Comb through the hair to see if the color is taking.
Final Results (03:40)
