    Next, subsection the front from the back interior. Take a vertical parting in the center of the crown and project at 90°. Position your fingers parallel to the curve of the head to sculpt uniform lengths using a length guide from the previously sculpted section. Repeat on the opposite side.

    10

    Next, subsection the interior with a side part extending from above the middle of the left eye to just behind the apex. Release a 1” (2.5 cm) wide horizontal parting around the fringe.

  • close formula
    11

    With the head slightly tilted forward and the hair in natural distribution, take a horizontal parting in the fringe. Use a nonparallel finger position for a diagonal-back line to connect with the shortest lengths on the left side. Sculpt parallel to your fingers. Then sculpt the other side of the fringe. Create a steeper diagonal-back line for a length increase toward the right side.

  • close formula
    12

    Take a pivotal parting along the lighter side of the part, project straight up, position your fingers for a slight length increase toward the front hairline and sculpt parallel. Repeat on the heavier side of the side part.

    13

    Take vertical partings and texturize with gentle razor strokes along the midstrand and ends of the hair.

    Use the shears with the channeling technique in the back interior to break up the texture.

    15

    Apply a level-7 ash permanent color with 10 volume (3%) developer to the base throughout the entire head.

    The art shows an alternation of slices following the hairline on the front and the sides. Begin at the right front hairline with an alternation of colors: level-9 ash demi-permanent color with developer; pastel beige demi-permanent color with developer; leave the next slice in its existing color.

    17

    Continue the alternation throughout the design. Process, rinse, shampoo and condition prior to styling.
