The hair was cut by combing the fringe area forward and cutting the hair to the desired length, after which the hair was lifted upward in slices, one section at a time, in order to match that length using 180-degree elevation. Each section was taken down and cut in thin slices by lifting the hair to 180-degrees of elevation and cutting it using the guide length.

The photos show the hair after the cut in its long shaggy cut. This is a universal cut and has been around for decades and longer under various names. The cut is versatile in its styling, and could very easily be flattering for a wide variety of facial types, whether blown straight, or blown-out using a round brush for soft curves, and possibly turned-out ends.
After the cut, the hair was plied with product and water and once more rolled using the sponge rollers shown previously. It was once more rolled in a freestyle design as far as roller placement.

The difference in the results is, I think, extremely obvious. The volume created in the hair is evenly distributed because of the layering of the hair. The reduced length allows for stronger curl and more-evenly distributed curls. After the hair was dried, the rollers were removed and the curls were brushed out.

The hairstyle is one with lots of body and movement, and plenty of curl without being too curly. It’s actually one of my favorite looks and is very good for a wide range of women, because it can be styled with lots of versatility.
