  • 1

    Shampoo and condition the hair with Styleshots Extreme Straight. Apply Candy Fixations Glaze Haze to the entire head. Take a horseshoe section at the high point of the recession.

  • 2

    Starting at the sides take slightly diagonal back sections. Comb the hair perpendicular to the parting and elevate to 90 degrees. Remove weight by point-cutting squarely to the head shape.

  • 3

    Cross-check before proceeding behind the ears.

  • 4

    Continue with the same technique towards to back until the center back is reached.

  • 5

    At the back, above the occipital bone, lower the elevation to build weight below the crown.

  • 6

    Note the change of hand position and repeat the same technique on the opposite side. For a balanced end result keep the technique consistent.

    Repeat the same technique.

  • 8

  • 11

    Take a central vertical section from the horseshoe to the front hairline.

  • 13

    Pivot around the crown and continue with the same technique.

  • 14

    In front of the ear use horizontal sections. Overdirect all sections up to the square layering level and point-cut to remove weight from the top.

    Keep hand and body position consistent and repeat the same technique on the opposite side.

  • 16

    Overdirect the hairline back to maintain length and weight throughout the fringe.

  • 17

    Cross-check before proceeding.

  • 18

    Blow-dry the hair working with the direction of the hair growth.

    Comb the fringe forwards and reshape using point-cutting at a low elevation in the comb.

    Using point-cutting, further detail the fringe for shape and softness.
