HOW-TO STEPS

  • close formula
    1

    Carlijn wants to retain some length, but wants a funky look with more color variation in the front.

  • close formula
    2

    A planar form results from the combination of increase and uniform lengths in the interior. Graduated lengths in the back exterior and increase layers on the sides are combined with long disconnected solid lengths in the nape and sideburn areas.

  • close formula
    3

    Section the interior with a slightly off-center line on the left side. Section the sides from the interior sectioning line to behind the ear. Isolate the nape with a large zigzag line along the occipital area and a small triangle shape in front of each ear.

  • close formula
    4

    Section the interior with a slightly off-center line on the left side. Section the sides from the interior sectioning line to behind the ear. Isolate the nape with a large zigzag line along the occipital area and a small triangle shape in front of each ear.

  • close formula
    5

    Section the interior with a slightly off-center line on the left side. Section the sides from the interior sectioning line to behind the ear. Isolate the nape with a large zigzag line along the occipital area and a small triangle shape in front of each ear.

  • close formula
    6

    With the head slightly tilted forward, begin sculpting the lower crest on the left side. Take a digonal-forward parting, distribute perpendicular and project at a medium angle. Position your fingers parallel to the part and notch to create a stationary design line. Work through the section and repeat on the opposite side.

    7

    Subsection the interior diagonally from the left recession area to the point where sections 2 and 5 meet.

  • close formula
    8

    With the head upright, take a horizontal parting at the back of section 3. Project straight up and notch a horizontal line using the lengths from the crest as a guide. Then sculpt a planar form throughout the section using the horizontal parting as a mobile design line.

  • close formula
    9

    Release a vertical parting from behind the left ear. Project straight out and notch with your fingers parallel to the parting, using the interior lengths as a guide. Work toward the front hairline using a mobile design line.

     

  • close formula
    10

    In section 5 take a vertical parting, project straight out and notch with your fingers parallel to the part. Use a length guide from the interior.

  • close formula
    11

    With the hair air formed straight, take vertical partings throughout the crown area, use high projection and notch deeply to blend.

  • close formula
    12

    Release a diagonal-forward parting in the fringe and slide cut while opening and closing the shears. Take a second parting and repeat.

  • close formula
    13

    Next, tilt the head forward and slide cut over the surface of the hair with the shears open for more mobility.

  • close formula
    14

    In the nape, point cut with the tips of the shears toward the ends of the strands for visual blending. If necessary, texturize the lengths in the sideburn and nape areas.

  • close formula
    15

    The art shows the application of the high-lift color with 40 volume (12%) developer to the back and sides and the parting pattern used to apply the highlights.

  • close formula
    16

    In the exterior, apply a cool ash-blond high-lift color with 40 volume (12%) developer to the lengths and ends. Apply a level-6 violet ash brown with 10 volume (3%) developer to a slice at the front hairline of the fringe. Then, apply lightener with 20 volume (6%) developer to the next slice.

  • close formula
    17

    Repeat this alternation throughout the fringe placing foils back to back. Use level-6 ash-blond with 10 volume (3%) developer from base to ends in the side sections. After placing all the foils, apply the high-lift color to the base of the remaining hair. After processing the hair, rinse and tone the lightened sections with a pastel-silver toner. Process, rinse, shampoo and condition prior to styling.

    Symmetrical lengths and natural tone-on-tone colors bring Carlijn a back-to-nature feel with a modern twist.
