    Section a triangle-shaped fringe from each recession area extending to the highest point of the head and clip away. Divide the front from the back vertically from ear to ear. Using upward curving partings, section the nape from ear to ear around the head. Make a second curved parting approximately 1-2 inches parallel above.

    Start in the center back section, cut an upward curved guideline with the longest points behind the ears. Graduate the hair in this section by elevating very slightly to the guideline. Clean up the hairline.

  • close formula

    Cut the hair from the section above by directing to the guideline to create a soft bob line, elevating only slightly. Connect the sides allowing the curvature to become longer at the front.

  • close formula

    Adjust all hair at the back and sides to the curved guideline shape. The elevation determines the amount of graduation.

    Blow-dry completely. Take fine sections and cut the fringe into an organic, asymmetric shape. Start at eye level and continue longer at the side. Do not connect the lone end with the side. Then start with a vertical section at the back to connect the graduation, work parallel to the head shape radiating around the head and pivoting from the top of the head. Then connect the length at the back with the fringe. Work from the shortest to the longest point at the front. Work all sections by radiating and pivoting from the top of the head and over-direct all sections to the short guideline maintaining length and asymmetrical shape.

    Section hair into three eyelets as shown. Color will be placed in horizontal slices within Eyelets 2 and 3 and in diagonal slices within Eyelet 1.

  • close formula

    Using the classic cross parting technique, start at the back of the head and apply Formula A to all regrowth. Process for 45 minutes without heat; when 10-15 minutes remain, apply remaining color to the fine hair around the hairline. Rinse, shampoo and dry.

    Create the eyelet sections as shown in the sectioning diagrams.

    Begin in Eyelet 1. Using the back-to-back foiling technique, slice slightly diagonally and apply alternating formulas B and C.

  • close formula

    Repeat Step 3 in Eyelet 2.

    Continue as before in Eyelet 3. Place a connecting slice between Eyelet 1 and 3 and apply Formula B to this section. Apply Formula D to all remaining hair. Process 20 minutes without heat. Rinse, shampoo and condition.
