Step 1: Section your hair
Take a small section of hair from above your Style Strand highlight and clip it out of the way.
Step 2: Open the micro-bead
Using a pair of household pliers, gently squeeze the ends of the micro-bead in order to open it up into a circle. The gently force you apply to the ends of the micro-bead will cause the micro-bead to go back to it's original form.
Tip: Do this slowly. If you are too aggressive you will cause the micro-bead to go from flat, to open and back to flat. The key is to gently squeeze it just enough so that it opens up enough for it to slide off your hair.
Step 3: Slide the highlight down your hair
Now that your have opened your micro-bead your highlight will slide down your strand of hair and off. Simply place two fingers around the ring and gently guide it down.
Tip: Do not pull on it. If you find it is not moving, you will need to go back to step 2 and open the micro-bead some more.
Step 4: Reapply, store or toss
Now that you have removed your Style Strands highlight, you can reapply it (instructions below), store it in a dry place for later or if your highlight has seen better days and finally exceeded its lifespan - say goodbye.
Step 1: Re-thread the micro-bead with threading loop
Remember the threading loop we told you to keep in the Apply section? This here is why! Take this threading loop and thread it up through the bottom on the micro-bead. The small plastic end of your threading loop should be on the side with the highlight, and the fishing-line-looking loop will be at the very top - just like when you first applied it!
Step 2: Apply
