Short Take, Shine Line

This disconnected undercut with a heavy top portion gets special treatment with a shine line that highlights its curves. The look is one of the standouts in Schwarzkopf Professional’s latest Essential Looks Collection. “When creating a disconnected undercut with a heavy overhanging top shape, always check the balance throughout the haircut,” advises Schwarzkopf’s Richard Ashforth. And here’s a color tip from Julie Alvarez: “When creating a shine line with color, always look at and follow the haircut shape even if you have to realign your sections.

    1

    Create a horseshoe section. Note that the shorter area underneath will not connect to the longer top area. Create a slight diagonal section at the front hairline and cut to desired length. The hair will be slightly longer through the temple area and shorter in the hairline area.

    Use a scissor-over-comb technique throughout the hairline and perimeter to refine the hairline and create a close-fitted head shape. Always work with the natural hairline growth pattern.

    Proceed to the side and back overhang. Create horizontal sections, and cut to desired length. Point-cut for softness, and cut through the comb for control. These sections will not connect to the underneath area.
