1. Begin by sectioning the hair from the temple to the crown and horizon-
tally across the crown from ear to ear.
2-3. Working from the side parting, each section is elevated straight out
from the head and overdirected onto the previously cut section. This cut-
ting technique creates a square flat shape through the top.
4-6. Comb away the fringe section and begin the side section by cutting
at an angle of 45° to the head.
7-8. Continue working to behind the ear. The same procedure is repeat-
ed on the second side to create a graduated shape.
9-10. Sections from behind the ear through to the center nape are
overdirected and cut using the previously cut side section as a guide.
Continue through to the centre nape.
11. Repeat for the other side of the head.
12. A central section is taken through the nape and elevated straight out
from the head.
13. Using the previously cut top section as a guide, each section is over
directed onto this point and cut at a 45° angle to the head. This will retain
weight through the corners of the head shape.
14-17. The hairlines and fringe section are now refined using the point of
the scissors. The cut is cross checked for balance and attention to detail.
Using a basic tint application technique, the color was applied all over
working from roots to ends. The color was then left to develop according
to the manufacturer's shade guide instructions.
