HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1
  • 2

    Cut the excess length off in a ponytail and create a horseshoe parting from recession to recession to divide the head shape. Use a block graduation technique to eliminate length and weight by cutting a 1-inch section below the horseshoe to 1-inch in length.

  • 3

    Using a scissor-over-comb technique, create a slight taper from the hairline to the block graduation weight line.

  • 4

    Release the top of the horseshoe and take a section along the natural parting, elevating perpendicular to the head shape, then point-cut short to long in the front.

  • 5

    Overdirect parallel sections to the previous guide to increase weight towards the sides of the head shape.

  • 6

    Dry the rest of the hair with a flat brush and customize the shape with deep parallel point-cutting and channel cutting through the length. Style the shape with wax using your fingers to comb it back.
