    Take a center section from the crown to the front.

    Elevate the section and, starting slightly shorter at the crown, cut the line longer towards the front hairline.

    Using the previous section as a guideline, pivot round to the side of the head following the same cutting angle as before.

     

  • 5

    Once the front quarter is complete, take a small section from the front as a guideline and take a section parallel with the hairline, elevate up and cut the line leaving length towards the outside.

    Continue the sections until you reach the center back. Move to the opposite side and, starting at the front, repeat the same process.
