HOW-TO STEPS

    Begin by sectioning the front of the hair from ear to ear.  Just below the crown from side to side, create a new section and secure it with a clip.  Take a deep V section beneath the crown, encompassing the entire occipital and nape area, leaving out a section behind each ear.

    This sectioning technique creates two large triangles, one in the crown area and the other one at the back of the head.  The fringe area is clipped away, securing it in front of the ear.

    Starting wiht the triangular section at the back of the head, cut the first section to create graduation.  Subsequent sections are cut working toward the center back of the head using the previously cut section as a guide.

    The same cutting technique is then repeated on the other side of the head until the entire back section is complete.

    Work through the triangular section up to the crown area by taking fine sections and pulling them up at a 90 degree angle to the head.  Cut using the point of the scissors.

    Working forward from the crown, elevate all sections up and over direct them back to retain the length through the front.

    Repeat the same technique on the other side of the head until the entire section is complete.

    Blow-dry the hair and use a flat iron to achieve a smooth finish.  Refine the entire hair cut using a pointing technique.

    Use a slicing technique to refine and soften the edges of the haircut.

    Move to the fringe area and cut it visually using the point of the scissors.

    14

    Continue cutting the fringe with the point of the scissors.

    The fringe is slightly longer on one side and is textured, not solid.  It is important to visually adapt the fringe to each individual client.

    After drying the hair, secure a small triangular section over each ear and a small oblong section behind each ear.

    Color the triangular and oblong sections with the second color, taking back-to-back slices.  Color the remaining hair with the third color, from scalp to ends.
