    Using the cut as your guide, slice in the colors in section 1, alternating them as you go.

  • 3

    Follow the hairline, and slice up the left side until the hair becomes very short. Do not leave any hair between the slices.

  • 4

    Continue to slice across the front fringe in section 1.

  • 5

    Move to the right side and alternate slices in sections 1 & 2 up to the crown.

  • 6

    Move to the opposite back corner and continue to slice at a diagonal until you reach the top of the head. You will have created an arc of foils that begins in the front left quadrant and ends in the back right quadrant.

    The two remaining quadrants will be colored the darkest color to enhance the strong lines of the cut.
