    The structure graphics show graduation on either side with solid nape lengths. An off-center diagonal section incorporates a combination of uniform and increase layers at the top and graduation at the back.

    The nape is sectioned at the occipital with diagonal-forward partings on ether side. Begin in the nape with the head tilted forward. Use comb control and the notching technique to sculpt a concave line. Point the tips of the shears toward the center of the line.

    Tilt the head forward. On the left side take a thick diagonal-back parting encompassing the front hairline.

    Work toward the ear using the same technique. Continue using comb control and the notching technique following the established stationary design line.

     Project straight up and sculpt with a deep notching technique to blend the sections and create additional softness. Work toward the back using the same technique.

    As you reach the back, begin projecting the lengths at 90 degrees and continue to use a deep notching technique.

    To blend the back lengths, use the top of the left nape section as a guide. Distribute lengths to the guide with medium projection.

    Air form the hair and part the interior on the right side. Tilt the head slightly forward. Slide cut through the longer strands from the top to create a soft, textured point.

    Start in the nape and apply a level 8, warm blond demi-permanent color with developer. On the left side, take diagonal-forward partings, apply a level 10 natural blond, demi-permanent color with developer from base to ends. Repeat on the opposite side. Move to the triangle at the front hairline and apply level 8 color from base to ends. Then, release the last section and apply level 9, golden blond demi-permanent color with developer from base to ends. Process, rinse, shampoo and condition prior to styling.
