Once you've completed the outline, work the interior using the outline as a guide. Working with a vertical section over the ear up to the centre parting, pull the hair straight out from the head and cut a flat shape using the outline as a guide. Start with this area as the hair is thickest at this point. Please notice that the top of the section is over-directed, ensuring a corner is placed at the rounds of the head - a characteristic of barbering.

Create a centre-parting in the back from crown to nape. Then work vertical sections from behind the ear to the centre-back. Use over-direction and the previous section as a guide, again creating a corner at the round of the head.
