Next divide the hair from above the
occipital bone to just below the top of the
ear. The remaining middle section is divided
in the centre back.
Then take out the underneath panel and
divide this in the centre back. Next work
the first section in the nape area. Note a
slight curve in this initial section which will
reflect the angle that you will be cutting.
Tilt the head very slightly forwards and
then using the small teeth of the comb to
create tension in the hair flatten the hair
down onto the neck using your scissors as
an aid to stick the hair to the skin.
Then cut a curved line.
Repeat this process on the other side.
Make use of the back of your comb to hold
the hair still.
Continue to take sections up the head
reflecting the initial shape.
Once you have worked this section, release
the hair to check the balance.
Continue into the centre panel, taking
parallel sections. Elevate the hair using
tension in the fingers, creating graduation.
The graduation helps to bevel the outline
and distributes the weight more evenly.
It is a good practice to visually check the
work after completing each section.
Continue to take parallel section with
awareness to elevation.
