  • 1

    Prep clean hair with PHYTO Phytomist Instant Hydrating Conditioner and dry the hair, which will be cut dry.

  • 2

    Create a v-shaped section on the top of the head.

  • 3

    Create a section at the temple and part downward at an angle matching the v shape.

  • 4

    Bring a 1-inch section forward from the temple, cutting at the angle of the jawline.

  • 5

    Continue to section working upward toward the original v parting, cutting in diagonal segments working toward the base of the nape.

  • 6

    Mirror this cutting on the other side of the head, meeting at the base of the nape.

  • 7

    Cutting with this technique, create graduated layers in a sweeping motion, following the head.

  • 8

    Take down the top section. Hydrate hair and prep with Phytomist for moisture and definition.

  • 9

    Begin to connect your top crown section with the back section.

  • 10

    Cut and refine the shape of the front sections of the hair using the line of the jaw as a guide.

  • 11

    Directing scissors downward, channel-cut the hair to add texture and a visual blend, working vertically toward the nape.

  • 12

    Apply PHYTO Professional Intense Volume Mousse and blow-dry the hair to lend support to the shape and to integrate additional texture.

  • 13

    For more visual blend and additional texture, create contrast in the cut by twisting small sections of hair throughout and sliding scissors through the twisted hair at the mid-shaft.
