Balanced Round Graduation - How To (3)Previous Page
Continue with parallel sections, using your outline as a guide.
Having established the weight on the outline we move on to graduate the internal shape.
Each section is now elevated creating your graduation and shape, which is determined by the characteristics of the hair you are working with, for example texture and quality.
We can clearly see how the graduation extends and flows from the front into the back, taking account of the ear area.
Next cross check your shape diagonally. Notice how chosen angle of the hair and the position of the section is tailored to this particular head shape.
Repeat the process on the other side. Notice how Stacey is working from wet to dry embracing the natural texture.
Stacey now moves to the top area, initially working with slightly curved horizontal sections. Comb the hair forwards on to the eye line, and using tension point a curved outline, starting in the centre and moving out. Notice how the curved line drops below the previous side panels in order to leave room to connect the fringe and the sides separately, this counteracts the weakness of the temple area.
Next Stacey connects the temple area.
