1-2. Make a part from ear to ear. Separate the upper nape area by making a horizontal parting across the occipital bone. Then separate into triangu. lar sections behind the ears. The lower nape area will form a triangle as well. Keep sections separate with clips as shown in the Figures.
3-4. In this section take a 1" vertical parting at the right side of the lower nape area and cut it. Cut the next parting using the previous section as a guide, moving in toward the center of the head. Next cut the left side of the lower nape area the same way.
5-6. Starting at the nape, lift and point.cut moving up the back of the head to your occipital parting, separate them into thin horizontal sections and holding them straight out from the head.
7. Start at the left side of the head, take small sections and overdirect the hair to the top of the crown, point cutting as you go (note: this will leave the perimeter longer at the sides).
8. Do this on both sides over directing toward the crown, you will notice that these sections will be disconnected from the previous section in the back. When checking pull the hair back to the nape in order to take off the excess volume in the frontal and occipital areas.
9. Next, detail the nape area, using the scissor over comb method to soften the lines and to better define the cut.
10. Starting at the left side of the head, slide.cut the perimeter to soften the ends. Do this on both sides.
11. Point.cut the fringe in an asymmet. rical "thorn" pattern, being careful not to cut into the sides. Finish the cut by checking and refining any needed areas.
12. The back area is kept separate from the sides when cutting into the perimeter. The model is blown dry and a straightening iron is used to help create the finished look.
