    Create three diamond shaped sections on the top of the head. Each diamond will be a different size—small, medium and large. The largest diamond is closest to the right side. The other two diamonds are staggered as shown. The largest diamond is section 5, the small and medium diamonds are sections 3 and 4.

    Next create a diamond on the right and left sides of the head. The diamond will be slightly behind the hairline and is on a diagonal. These are sections 1 and 2.

    Pro Tip: To achieve more visible contrast, increase the size of the diamond sections. To reduce the contrast, make the diamond sections smaller.
