When working the top, use the front and rear sections together to achieve a through line. The sections you take must be parallel to the underneath.

Step 14
When working the back, ensure your fingers are parallel to the underneath sections.
Try not to damp down unless necessary (if you do, do it evenly) as this can distort your vision of the shape.

All sections follow this routine, gradually gaining length as you work up the head and remembering to pull the hair towards you. Therefore, every parallel 1cm section you take is 5mm longer than the previous and this builds up the weighty shape. You will notice that eventually your final section is far longer than your first as every section is 5mm longer. Be aware of this. Too many sections means the top is too long. Too few sections means the top is too short.
Step 16
Once this process is completed, move to divide into the original sections. Only cutting the original back triangle section, over-direct to the opposite side, cutting to the same sequence and leaving an extra 5mm of length on each section. This will give you perfect balance.
