TECHNICAL STEPS

  • STEP 01A

    To start the cut, take a vertical section from the crown to the forehead. Comb and elevate the hair 90˚ to the head. Then, using a razor, establish a layering guide from the interior towards the hairline, following the head shape.

  • STEP 1B

  • STEP 02

    Continue pivoting sections towards the sides.

  • STEP 03

    Upon reaching the temple area, take a diagonal back section to isolate and protect the side perimeter.

  • STEP 04A

    Working with pivoting sections, continue towards the ears and layer consistently throughout the interior, while dropping out the perimeter to save the length.

  • STEP 04B

  • STEP 05

    To maintain a visual disconnection, gently blend the long side panels at a 45˚ elevation.

  • STEP 06

    Continue using the same layering technique, pivoting around the crown.

  • STEP 07

    In the nape, work from slightly short to long to keep length and maintain softness through the perimeter.

  • STEP 08

    Continue until the entire back area is completed.

  • STEP 09A

    Maintain the hand position and repeat the same technique on the other side of the head.
