  • close formula

    Horizontal graduation will be utilized to build weight throughout the perimeter while the internal layering pattern is independently disconnected in order to create an anti-directional feel.

  • close formula

    Take a profile parting from the center forehead to the center nape. From the top of the crown, take a diagonal forward parting to the mid-recession on both sides.

  • close formula

    From the top of the parietal ridge, take a curved diagonal back horseshoe from below the crown.

  • close formula

    Below the horseshoe, take a central vertical parting. Take a horizontal section from below the occipital to the base of the ear. Comb the hair at the natural fall, elevate to one finger’s depth and blunt-cut parallel to the part.

  • close formula

    Take a second horizontal section from the occipital to the middle of the ear, combing the hair at the natural fall. Elevate at two fingers’ depth and blunt-cut parallel to the part.

  • close formula

    Take a horseshoe section from above the occipital to mid-recession. From behind the ear, comb at the natural fall, elevate to three fingers’ depth, and cut parallel to the part.

  • close formula

    In the front of the ear, transition your elevation to one fingers’ depth. Repeat on the opposite side.

  • close formula

    Release the remaining hair, working with the same distribution and elevation. Blunt-cut the hair onto the underneath guideline.

  • close formula

    Cross check the line for balance.

  • close formula

    From the top of the crown, take a vertical section using the guide created by the graduation underneath. Elevate the hair 90° from the round of the head and slice parallel to the head shape.

  • close formula

    Sub-divide the guide and continue by taking pivoting diagonal backs from the top of the crown, combing the hair into a T-part and overdirecting the hair to the stationary guideline.

  • close formula

    Release the top triangular section and take a central vertical section from the top of the crown to the center forehead. Elevate the hair to 90° from the section and cut an independent guide square, disconnected from the previous layering.

  • close formula

    Sub-divide the guide and comb the remainder of the hair into a T-part, overdirecting up to the central stationary guide in order to create a square inversion.

  • close formula

    Utilizing a wrap technique, blow-dry with a small cushion brush.

  • close formula

    Detail the base line by cleaning up any unwanted graduation with a wide-tooth comb.

  • close formula

    Elevate the side panels at a low 45 degree angle from the face and point-cut a deep parallel line to create a visual balance.

  • close formula

    Continue with soft surface channel cutting towards the face for separation.
