CUTTING & STYLING: Strong and detailed, textured and shapely
Fashion-led, this isn’t a look for the shy & retiring type. Using power play as a cutting agent puts the smooth texture in place. Matte Separation Wax keeps it looking strong.
Prepare the hair using Wise up Shampoo from Bed Head for Men.
Apply Power Play Gel as a cutting agent.
To start the cut take a high recession horseshoe.
Blow dry the underneath area before proceeding.
Using the #1 blade attachment establish the foundation for the skin fade at the temple level horizontally all around the head.
Now using the clippers over the comb create the block graduation weight line along the horseshoe section.
To complete the fade, alternate the blade attachments on the clippers going from larger to smaller until the graduation appears seamless from the hairline to the horseshoe section.
Now take a radial division to separate the crown from the front.
Pivot around the crown and remove weight using point cutting following the head shape on both sides of the head.
In front of the ear continue with horizontal sections and follow the guide from the back creating a subtle disconnection from the underneath area.
Over direct the front section to maintain length and weight through the fringe.
Repeat the same technique on 14B. the opposite side.
Blow dry forward with a small paddle brush.
Detail the disconnection as well as the interior using parallel point cutting.
Reshape the fringe by point cutting at a low elevation across the forehead.
Finish the cut using Matte Separation Wax to give hold and definition to the texture.
