Alfaparf Acqua Trend Collection: Watercolor

Alfaparf Acqua Trend Collection introduces Watercolor. The color plays a fundamental role to create the volume sensation. So, just as the sun effect, the natural shade lifts gently towards the ends contributing to add fullness to the part framing the face. The plays of copper and golden re”ections, fading one into another, add movement and lightness to the cut.


HOW-TO STEPS

  • close formula
    1

    Create a square panel from the temples to the crown.

    2

    Separate a triangular panel that, starting from the panel just created, goes to the occipital bone.

    3

    Starting from the top of the triangle, take a curved line that goes up to the right part of the back nape.

    4

    Start the cut taking sections that pivot to the center. Work taking each section to the central point. In this way create a concave shape having more length and weight on the sides and the forehead. Pay attention while defining the length of the first section because this will determine the length of the whole cut.

    Work on the disconnected triangular section. Start from the partition and choose a suitable length to lay on the concave section. Cut bringing each section on the first one through the triangle. Elevate each section to avoid creating an heavy perimeter.

    Once all sections have been cut, dry and refine the shape. Include the squared section of the forehead following the sides and nape profiles.
