HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Sectioning
    Starting in the fringe area, create a triangle that extends from the corner of each eye to the top of the head. From each end point, part the hair across the parietal ridge and around the head. Next, take a parting from the top of each ear; clip for control. In the back, part hair below the occipital from ear to ear and take a center parting in this section; clip for control.

    Step 1: Starting in the center nape region, take a 1/2″ vertical sub-section and wet cut no longer than 2″ in length. Utilizing 90° angle and traveling guide, hold section vertically and cut, keeping the shape round to the head. Cross-check.
    Step 2: Starting in the center of the occipital region, and using previously cut hair from nape section as a guide, cut hair vertically using a 45° angle to build weight. Work from the center to behind the ear. Repeat on other side. Complete the entire section, cross-checking horizontally as you work.
    Step 3: On the side temporal region, using guide from behind ear as a traveling guide, work towards face at a 45° angle. Repeat on the other side. Once complete, add styling product and blow-dry all hair using a Denman® brush. Flat iron if necessary.
    Step 4: In crown region, using occipital as a guide, internally carve hair working from short to long towards face.
    Step 5: In the fringe region, using comb control, lay comb on cheek connecting ear lobe to corner of lip. Etch cut strong line. Duplicate on opposite side.
    Step 6: Personalize and refine. Detail lines around perimeter for final shape
