Once the top and sides are blended together, a razor tool can be used to soften the edges of the cut and smooth the tapering effect of the layers. It is important to be very
careful in this step, as the already layered edges leave little room for errors. A light touch will produce the desired results.
Our demonstration was styled with a flat ceramic brush, a blow-dryer on a low-heat, low-speed setting, styling mouse for volume and a small amount of gel on the sides for
control. A light misting of hairspray and the wide-tooth end of a styling comb added definition to the style.
The finished style is short and easy to maintain. The shape of the cut (and the volume on top) will elongate short and round faces, accent the eyes and emphasize the
upper portion of the head. It is a great style for athletic women and busy professionals alike.
Advice: Practice this hair cut on a manikin before trying it out on a real person.
