Cross check though the centre-back using
the same elevation. This refines the
connection between both sides and
Next, refine the perimeter in the front using
free hand techniques.
Now begin work on the top section. Use
horizontal sections from the parting and
stand behind the model. Use a guide from
the first side area and cut a concave section
from short to long, elevating and overdirecting
the hair. Use the position of your
fingers to determine the angle.
Please note the concave connects on the
parting side and does not connect on the
Check the angle visually.
Continue with parallel sections through to
the crown using the same elevation and
over-direction and your previous section as
Please note that the parallel sections take
into account the roundness of the head and
the angle increases towards the back.
Now dry the hair. Dry the underneath first,
then work diagonally from front to crown so
the dryer is directed down the cuticle.
Using Coriollis C2 irons and diagonal
sections which mirror the outline, iron the
hair ensuring a bevel throughout the
Please note Stacey is particular with his
temperature control dependent of hair
Now use appropriate free hand techniques
to soften the internal shape.
The result is a traditional, basic concave
technique refreshed for the modern climate
by use of disconnection. A great teaching
tool for body positioning and finger angles.
