    Take an off-center part (or your client’s favorite part location) to ensure this area is softened with highlights. Divide the hair into three sections: one on each side of the part (from the ears forward) and one in the back. Separate the fringe at the very front and center.

    Divide the back section in half with a horizontal part, then pin the remainder out of the way. Divide the lower section in half vertically, then pin the other half out of the way. Take the top half of the back section down and divide in half horizontally. Pin the top half out of the way, then divide the lower half into three vertical sections or columns.
