    To establish the fringe section, roll the comb from the corner of the eyebrow up to the top center of the head. Tuck the hair behind the ear to clear the temporal area, then condense the hair to the tip of the nose to maintain a longer outside corner of the fringe. Using the tip of your shears, snip a straight line to create the fringe perimeter, then release the section.

    Take a vertical section right behind the fringe and side section from the center top part down to mid ear. Divide that section in half, then comb the lower subsection down to the guide. Condense and cut. Next, bring the top subsection down, swinging the hair around to the cheek. Keep the elevation minimal.

    Take a second vertical section from the top of the head directly to the back of the ear. Divide this vertical section in half where the ear meets the face. Comb the front portion of the subsection and condense the section over the cheekbone. Line up your fingers on the diagonal and connect the line. Next, comb the back subsection behind the ear. Line up your fingers with the longest point of the front section to connect the line and cut.

    Create a parting from behind the ear across and down to the center nape, and comb a portion of the diagonal neckline parting down behind the ear. Line up the tip of your fingers with the last guide, and using the tips of the shears, snip down and around to maintain maximum length.

    Continue up the back half of the head with diagonal partings. Check the guide and continue the same cutting angle with low elevation. Take controllable subsections to create steep connection from shorter to longer.

    Comb the hair thoroughly from behind and check to make sure the angle is consistent on both sides and that you have created a long point in the center of the back. Divide the hair down the center of the back, moving each side in front of the shoulders.

    Take a small central fringe section and slide your fingers down to the ends. Use a razor to lightly tap out bits of hair horizontally above your fingers. Repeat on either side of the center fringe section.

    Once you reach mid-ear, carve a diagonal parting from the front central part to the central nape. Separate only this new section away from lower sections to avoid over-razoring the hair.

    Overdirect the back with the same angle and elevation while tapping with the razor. Continue up the head with diagonal parts, eying the weight and density as you work. Repeat on the opposite side.
