TECHNICAL STEPS

  • STEP 01A

    Make a central profile parting from the forehead to the nape.

  • STEP 01B

  • STEP 02A

    Isolate a large fringe area from the top of the head to the low recession area with a crescent-shaped section.

  • STEP 02B

  • STEP 03

    Take a horizontal sub-section.

  • STEP 04

    Comb the hair to its natural fall and point-cut slightly rounded to one finger’s depth.

  • STEP 05

    Comb down the remaining fringe and follow the guide.

  • STEP 06

    Take two curved diagonal back sections from the fringe to the top of the occipital bone, and connect them squarely at the back to create an internal rectangular section.

  • STEP 07

    To separate the front from the back, create a sub-section horizontally at the crown.

  • STEP 08

    Part the top section in the middle, then take a horizontal section behind the fringe. Comb and elevate the hair to 90˚ to the round of the head and point-cut squarely to the head shape, disconnecting from the fringe.

  • STEP 09

    Continue in this way, working towards the back, using horizontal sections to create the layering pattern.

  • STEP 10A

    Maintain your body position and repeat the same technique on the other side.

  • STEP 10B

  • STEP 11

    Now take a vertical section behind the crown. Comb and elevate the hair to 90˚ to the round of the head and point-cut squarely to the head shape.

  • STEP 12A

    Continue working with pivoting sections towards the sides, slightly over-directing each section back to the previous section.

  • STEP 12B

  • STEP 13

    Note the change of hand and body position and repeat the same technique on the other side.

  • STEP 14

    Throughout the interior shape, twist-cut the hair to loosen the texture.

  • STEP 15A

    Continue the technique through the round of the head.

  • STEP 15B

  • STEP 16

    Use point-cutting to reshape the baseline and perimeter horizontally at a low elevation.

  • STEP 17

    Apply Strong Hold Mousse to the hair.

  • STEP 18

    Blow-dry the hair using a diffuser.

  • STEP 19

    Blast the roots to loosen the hair, then finish with Work It Hairspray.
