Step One: Diagonal forward partings were taken from the crown to the recession area. Step Two: A central vertical section was taken from the crown to the nape. The hair was distributed 90 degrees, elevated 90 degrees and point-cut to decrease in length.
>
Step Three: Vertical sections were continued. Each section was distributed 90 degrees, elevated 90 degrees and point-cut to decrease in length. Step Four: This was continued until the front was reached.
>
Step Five:The opposite side was completed in the same manner. Step Six: The underneath was blow-dried and a deep point-cutting technique was used to remove weight.
>
Step Seven:The top was released and a vertical section was placed off-centre. The hair was distributed 90 degrees, elevated 90 degrees and point-cut. Step Eight: Pivoting partings were taken from the vertical section. Hair was overdirected to the guide and point-cut to increase in length. This was repeated on the opposite side.
>
Step Nine:Hair was blow-dried and surface sliced and deep point-cut to personalise. After: Hair was blow-dried straight. Clay creme was rubbed through the hair and pulled upwards for lift.
