Hair: Akos Bodi It's all in the cut...the hair will just fall that way when it's done correctly. Slicing and point cutting the layers makes them soft!
1. Take a profile parting from the forehead to the crown.
2. Place a radial parting from the crown to the ear on both sides.
3. Place a diagonal forward section from the radial through to the recession area on both sides. Sub.divide a halo section at the crown, and place two diagonal forward sections from the halo section down to the edge of the nape to separate the back from the sides.
4. In the back, take a central vertical section, elevate to 90 degrees and cut using a controlled slicing technique. Slice out to the existing length.
5. On either side of the guideline take vertical sections, elevate to 90 degrees and cut to follow the guide from short to long.
6-7. Maintain vertical sections though the sides. Elevate to 90 degrees and continue with a controlled slicing technique through the top part of the section and slice cutting outwards to the existing length to allow for lighter density of hair in this area.
8. Release the halo section and take a pivoting section from the crown. Comb the hair straight cut 'square' to the head shape and cut to connect with the underneath length.
Repeat this throughout the back.
9. From the ear forward, take a diagonal forward section from the profile parting. Over direct back to the guide behind the ear and cut square to the head shape.
10. Repeat the technique on the opposite side.
11. Personalise the sides with controlled slicing.
12. Detail the top layers by holding the hair in the comb and using exaggerated point cutting.
