TECHNICAL STEPS

  • STEP 01A

    Take a horseshoe section around the head at the low recession, slightly dipping down at the occipital bone.

  • STEP 01B

  • STEP 02

    Commence the cut at the side by using a block graduation technique. Comb the hair perpendicular to the parting, elevate to 45˚ and blunt-cut parallel to the parting.

  • STEP 03

    Continue working evenly around the horseshoe, creating a uniform shape throughout the underneath area.

  • STEP 04A

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

  • STEP 04B

  • STEP 04C

  • STEP 05

    Further detail the underneath area using freehand visual blunt-cutting.

  • STEP 06

    Then take a radial parting from ear to ear across the crown, and a central vertical section from the crown to the occipital bone. Comb and elevate the hair to 90˚ to the round of the head and blunt-cut squarely to reshape the layers.

  • STEP 07A

    To complete the layering behind the ears, over-direct all the remaining hair back to the centre guide.

  • STEP 07B

  • STEP 08

    In front of the ear, take a central vertical section from the crown to the front hairline. Comb the hair 90˚ to the head and elevate 90˚ to the crown. Blunt-cut the layers from short to long towards the face, using the guide from the back.

  • STEP 09A

    To complete the layers, over-direct the remaining hair back to the centre on both sides of the head to create an inversion.

  • STEP 09B

  • STEP 10

    To reshape the length, comb the hair to its natural fall, elevate to 45˚and blunt-cut, increasing length towards the face while maintaining disconnection to the hairline.

  • STEP 11A

    Using Foxy Curls Extreme Curl Mousse, twist two strands of hair into one, then secure at the roots with a clip. Repeat this method until all the hair is clipped.

  • STEP 11B

  • STEP 11C

  • STEP 12

    Thoroughly blow-dry the hair using a diffuser.

  • STEP 13A

    To create a natural separation, divide each strand then gently shake out the hair while blasting with the dryer.

  • STEP 13B

  • STEP 14

    Finish with Get Twisted Anti-Frizz Finishing Spray to minimise frizz.
