You can create these color formulas based on level and color description.
Step 1 Divide the hair into four sections.
Step 2 Using the point-cutting technique, cut the lower occipital area down to the nape. Begin by cutting a 2" length and gradually shortening the hair as you move toward the neckline.
Step 3 Point cut the upper occipital area at a 45° angle as shown. Do not blend with the lower-occipital section.
Step 4 Point cut the temporal (side) area starting at 2" and gradually tapering the length as you move toward the ear. Comb the section forward and create a soft perimeter line. Point cut the hair around the ear, beginning with a feminine sideburn as shown.
Step 5 Separate a fringe section and create a short, concave perimeter line.
Step 6 Point cut the very top of the hair, holding each cutting section forward at a 45° angle to allow the hair to become longer as it approaches the fringe area.
Step 7 Finished haircut
