HOW-TO STEPS

  • close formula
    1

    Use Catwalk Fashionista Smooth & Shine as a cutting lotion.

    A radial parting is taken from ear-to-ear (to split the head evenly from front to back). A curved diagonal back section is taken from each side of the radial to isolate the back side panels.

    3

    In front of the radial, slightly curved sections are taken to the high recession on both sides.

    A horizontal division is taken through the occipital area and the top isolated. A horizontal section is taken and combed to a 90-degrees point – cut square. The remaining hair is brought up to the stationary guide and point cut.

    The back side panels are combed to the top of the section and block cut square.

    A profile section is taken from the crown, combed to 90-degrees and cut round to the head, disconnecting from all sections.  The remaining hair is over-directed to the center and the technique is repeated on both sides.

    7

    Pivoting sections are used in the front.  The hair is combed to 90-degrees, over directed and cut long to short in the interior.

    8

    The technique is repeated on the opposite side.

    9

    The top is now divided centrally. The hair is combed away from the center parting, held at graduation level and point-cut from short to long towards the fringe.

    10

    Deep parallel point-cutting is used through the longer disconnection to blend lengths.

  • close formula
    11

    Surface-cutting is used to break through the top disconnection.

    12

    The focal points of the cut are accentuated with TIGI Colour.  The overall look draws inspiration from the 70s, with a unique edge.
