    1

    Create a horseshoe shaped section on the top of the head—this is Section 4. Create a parting from behind the ear to the top of the parietal on both sides and secure—these are Sections 2 and 3. The entire back is Section 1. Subdivide for control.

    In Section 1, above the hairline, create a fine center slice. Apply Formula A from scalp to ends.

    Skip a half-inch section. Towards the right, create a diagonal slice. Apply Formula A scalp to ends. Leave a small space and create a diagonal weave. Apply Formula B. Create another diagonal weave directly above, again using Formula B.

    Leave a small space and create a diagonal weave beginning just behind the temporal region. Foils will begin pivoting and staggering. Apply Formula B. Create another diagonal weave and apply Formula B. (Tip: Slightly staggering the foils at the temporal region will help you to avoid a bright spot of color.) Continue working in the same manner, placing a slice and two weaves, all pivoting from the temporal region. Repeat in Section 3.
