Get The Look:
Sectioning: Create a triangle section in the fringe, the sides, and the crown leaving out the hair below the parietal ridge for a total of four sections.
Step One: In the nape area, point cut to the desired length. Repeat throughout the entire perimeter.
Step Two: In the back, take a vertical subsection, and bring the hair out 90 degrees. Razor cut 3 inches from the scalp down to the guide to create layers. Continue throughout the perimeter section.
Artist Tip: For the hair in front of the ear, direct it over to the back to maintain the length around the face.
Step Three: Release the crown section, and create a subsection in the crown area. Bring the subsection straight up, and point cut to desired length. Continue throughout entire crown section.
Step Four: Release the side sections. Direct the hair upward to the guide and point cut. Mirror on the opposite side.
Artist Tip: Go back through with your razor. Taking the hair out at a 90 degree angle,
razor cut the hair from underneath to create more layering.
Step Five: Release the fringe, and connect it to the sides.
Step Six: Apply BioSilk Silk Therapy with Natural Coconut Oil Leave-In Treatment.
Formula One: CHI Chromashine Mellow My Yellow
Formula Two: CHI Ionic Color Illuminate Conditioner – Rose Gold
Sectioning: Create a large triangle fringe section, two triangle side sections, and a diamond section in the crown to the nape while leaving out some hair in the nape area.
Step Seven: Apply Formula One starting in the nape area from roots to ends.
Step Eight: Release the side sections, and apply Formula One from roots to ends.
