Next, I misted the hair in the top and crown sections with a leave-in conditioner and used my
comb and scissors to blend the weight line created by the clipper cut. I layered the crown section with a uniform layering technique
and plotted the alignment of my new weighted area for the new look. Standing behind the head, I used the right eye as my guide and
slowly worked from front to back layering the side of the top section to create a pointed shape running back along the scalp behind the right eye.
The hair to the left of this peak was layered using a steeper angle, blending the lengths from
the left side all along to the peak on the right. I cross-checked the layering for evenness and made adjustments as needed using a
scissors-over-comb method, since the hair is now so short.
Styling The Hair:
The styling was accomplished using a blend of wax-based mousse and styling gel, and was slowly
worked using the fingers until the hair began to dry and therefore gain a little more texture. The texturing effect of the product
combined with the side-swept styling, helps to make the hair look fuller and thicker.
Afterward, we have discussed possibly using haircolor to lighten Austinís color slightly and
make his hair look thicker by decreasing the difference between the color of his hair and his scalp.
