Sam Villa “The Bardot” Step-by-Step

Part innocent, part sultry nymphet. ‘50s French screen siren Brigitte Bardot became an international sex symbol when she exploded onto the screen in the iconic film, “And God Created Woman.” Small wonder! He was inspired by the starlet’s iconic style at the peak of her career and her quintessential French attitude…And Sam Villa Created Bardot. Here’s the foundational cut.

HOW-TO STEPS

  • close formula
    1

    Pre-section profile view. Note the isolated areas, a horseshoe section on top and the left and right front areas.

  • close formula
    2

    Pre-section back view. Note the isolated curved nape section and the entire middle back area.

  • close formula
    3

    Elevate the entire curved nape section 90-degrees vertical with your hand up against the head to ensure proper elevation.

  • close formula
    4

    With a 90-degree finger angle, cut a horizontal line and work without over-directing.

  • close formula
    5

    Divide the back area in the center and cut the entire right back section with the elevation 90-degrees vertical and finger angle 45-degree diagonal. Note the over-direction behind the ear to maintain length behind the ear.

  • close formula
    6

    To create a guide for the left back area, take a piece from the left top of the back area and a section from the right top area. Marry the three sections in the center back and cut.

  • close formula
    7

    Note the center back piece from the right back area and the guide just created at the top left back. Now connect the dots.

  • close formula
    8

    Cut the left back section connecting the two dots with an elevation 90-degrees vertical and a 45-degree diagonal finger angle. Once again, note the over-direction behind the ear to maintain length behind the ear.

  • close formula
    9

    Comb the right front vertically to set up the over direction in the front. Now connect this into the right back area.

  • close formula
    10

    Elevate the back with the front 90-degrees vertical connecting the front into the right back area.

  • close formula
    11

    Repeat the same in the left front area combing vertically to set up the over direction in the left front.

  • close formula
    12

    Note a back view of the left front area connecting into the back left area. Elevation 90-degrees vertical and finger angle 45-degrees diagonal.

  • close formula
    13

    Before cutting the top horseshoe area, apply Redken aerate 08 bodifying cream-mousse and blow dry by wrap drying with a flat paddle brush.

  • close formula
    14

    Note profile view. The top horseshoe area will be cut at least two inches longer than the center back. Do not connect.

  • close formula
    15

    Work with horizontal sections across the top horseshoe section, elevation 90-degrees vertical, and deep point cut to create a soft diffused horizontal line.

  • close formula
    16

    Note the elevation at the base of the crown is 90-degrees vertical. Continue to deep point cut each horizontal section, over-directing to a stationary guide to maintain length in front to complete the shape.
