    • Take out a triangle shape from the crown to incorporate the lower crown.
    • Take out a rectangle shape through each side.
    • Through back triangle, incorporate a weaving technique from bottom to top of triangle, alternating two shades of blonde.
    • Repeat the same technique through the side rectangles working bottom to top.
    • At the front triangle, subdivide from center forehead to the midpoint of the diagonal forward parting.
