Short Round Graduation How To (3)Previous Page
Repeat this process on the second side.
Now work with the top area. Take a diagonal section that runs from the horseshoe down over the front of the face to the opposite temple. Cut a thin band that runs along this section.
Run the graduation from shorter to longer from the side into the fringe area. Leave out the temple which you will cut at a later stage as this is a notorious weak area.
Elevate the section and pull your fingers around, keeping the weight towards the font of the face. Extend the graduation from short to long towards the centre of the head. You can see Stacey runs his graduation from shorter to longer from the side into the fringe area.
Continue these sections using your previous sections as a guide, over-directing and elevating as you work to create a seamless build of weight.
Repeat this process on the second side. Please note the process of over-direction on both sides will create a corner through the top area.
Dry and finish the fringe area using Coriollis mini irons.
Now work on the fringe. Cut a heavy, curved line running from the centre to the top of the check bone. Employ a pointing technique combining cutting in the fingers and on the surface of the skin. This creates the required bevel effect.
Next, refine the perimeter to connect the side areas with the fringe.
