HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    After cleansing with S-factor Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner, apply S-factor Smoothing Lusterizer as a cutting lotion.

  • 2

    Take a curved diagonal section from the high recession to the top of the occipital bone on both sides of the head.

  • 3

    At the underneath, divide the front from the back with a diagonal forward section to the back of the ear. Starting at the back, work with diagonal back sections elevating to a layering level and working from short to long towards the back perimeter.

  • 4

    Continue working consistently until the curved diagonal section is reached.

  • 5
  • 6

    Repeat the same technique on the opposite side.

  • 7

    In the front of the ear take a horizontal section. Working with a high elevation and using the guide from the back, continue with block layering, working from short to long towards the front perimeter. Over-direct the remaining sections from below to the stationary guide.  

  • 8
  • 9

    Repeat the same technique on the opposite side.

  • 10

    Shape and detail the perimeter by freehand channel cutting.

  • 11

    Working with pivoting sections, create a 2 inch disconnection between the crown and the nape area, by distributing the hair at 90 degrees and point-cutting, increasing the length towards the crown.  

  • 12
  • 13

    Continue removing weight in front of the ear, working with horizontal sections and leaving the top layers disconnected.  

  • 14

    Over-direct the front hairline back in order to maintain weight in the fringe. 

  • 15

    Repeat the same technique on the opposite side.

  • 16

    Blow-dry hair flat to the head with a Hardcore Paddle Brush.

  • 17

    Straighten hair with the Hardcore Flat Iron to smooth out the cuticle.

  • 18

    Personalize the entire cut with deep point-cutting and channeling.

  • 19
  • 20

    Add movement and separation using the S-factor Creamy Molding Wax. Finish by using S-factor Vivacious Hairspray to give hold and separation.
