Textured 70s-Inspired Cut How-To

In this look from Alfaparf’s 70’s Collection, cool, elegant blonde is offset by a darker, face-framing shade for a chic pop of color. The provocative style juxtaposes smooth finger waves with expanded, teased volume.


 

HOW-TO STEPS

    1

    Create a trapezoid starting from ¾ of the outside of the right eyebrow to ¾ of the outside of the left eyebrow and continue up to the level of the crown (panel A). Starting at the base of the trapezoid near the crown, create a triangle with the point facing down (panel B) and then trace a straight line to about 1 cm (0.39 inches) behind the ear, creating the C panels. Trace a line that runs parallel to the shoulders, beginning from the point of section B and going above the ear to create the D panels. The rest of the hair is panel E.

    Panel E: Define the perimeter length 4-5 cm (1.58-1.97 inches) below the shoulders and bring all the hair to this length. Form into a round shape. Continue to loosely shape hair into a circle, bringing the two side sections together with the back perimeter and bringing all of the hair to the guideline.
