Graduated Bob How To (3)Previous Page
An important area are the sections leading up to the back of the ear, these have to be pulled down slightly and again the fingers pointed towards the chin, this will still create a slight amount of graduation, but will allow for the weakness around the ear area.
Now work from the parting with a diagonal section around into the back behind the ear. This follows the outline shape in the fringe. Next, with very little tension and using the comb as a guide, cut a line from the temple down towards your back guideline behind the ear, creating a corner.
Apply a pointing technique to soften the edge creating a graduated outline.
Continue with parallel sections over the head towards the disconnected crown area, allowing the shape to be graduated depending on the quality of the hair. The amount of elevation will vary, pending head shape and texture. Following the same pattern connect in the back area using the appropriate elevation.
Once the hair is dry, refine and define the outline shape. Refine the outline on the other side according to shape.
Work with the crown area dry in order to maximise the natural movement of the hair. Use a pointing technique to give a softer and natural feel to the overall look.
The final result. A beautiful defined form with graceful internal movement. A pure fundamental technique with a playful angle on the balance between shapes.
