Short Graduated Crop - How To (3)Previous Page
Continue this process to the top of the section crossing over the diagonal lines.
Now cross check in the opposite direction.
Repeat this process on the second side.
Next, refine and blend through the perimeter with a scissor-over-comb technique.
Next, work with the top section on the right-hand side. Take diagonal section from the L-section to the underneath guideline in the side. Elevate and over-direct and cut from long to short using the underneath as a guide and continuing the line.
Repeat this process throughout this section increasing the diagonal as you work towards the back and cutting from short to long, maintaining length in the top of the section. This initial process gives you the weight you require at the round of the head.
The next process will allow you to blend the length of the L-shape with the right-hand side. Remove weight from the top by working with horizontal sections, elevating straight up and cutting from shorter to longer using a pointing technique. Work first from the centre to the front, then from the centre to the crown. This will create a wrapping fringe across the top once the L-shape is brought down and refined.
Please notice that when Stacey reaches the crown he pivots the section.
