1. Start by painting two back-to-back super fine sections, weaving from the front. “You’re basically trying to capture all the hairline so that when it’s processed, it’s really, really pretty and really close,” notes Jack.


Note: Jack says weaving from the front is important for those first two sections because it’ll allow you to get super close to the root.


2. Then paint another, slightly thicker, section behind the first two.


3. For the next three sections, take finer slices and weave each one the traditional way.  “So already you’ve got some hair left out there so that negative space will start showing,” shares Jack.


4. Repeat the same sectioning on the sides.


5. Let everything process but be sure to keep an eye on the hair, then rinse. “The finer the hair, the quicker it’ll lift,” advises Jack.
