    Create a horizontal guide on the sides by taking a horizontal parting at the top of both side sections. Distribute and elevate the hair 90-degrees from the top of the section and cut square to create a stationary guide. Distribute all the hair below the section to the stationary guide and cut square.

    Distribute the top to natural fall and take a central vertical section from the crown to the front hairline. Distribute and elevate the section 90-degrees and cut increasing in length at the front using a slide cutting technique. Continue working through the top of the head until the front is complete.

    Use surface slicing to soften the look. To strengthen the fringe, square off the right corner. Distribute the fringe onto the right side, elevate one finger’s depth and cut square in the comb. Continue to hold the hair in the comb and connect the rest of the fringe into this shape.
