Step 5
Return to the first side and work a section pivoting from the centre parting across the round of the head into the nape. Take finger-size sub-sections, using the previous section as a guide and cut from short to long.
Use maximum over-direction and elevation to create maximum length through the perimeter.
 
Step 6
In the thicker areas of the section, divide the hair into two for ease and control.

Step 7
Repeat this process on the second side. Please notice Stacey chooses not to mirror his body position on the second side but to stand on his first side to maintain his cutting angle. Always cutting down from short to long guarantees maintenance of length. Accuracy of body and finger position when cutting this shape is essential.
 
Step 8
Continually check the shape and balance visually and technically.

Step 11
Next, take a round section, which defines the perimeter. Work the outline by elevating the sections, creating a softer outline throughout the shape. Work from the side areas into the back.
