How-To: Polygon Cut and Color from Farouk Systems
Symmetrical. Linear. Geometric. Logical. These are the rules that govern the polygon. But Farouk System’s newest look throws out all the rules—a juxtaposition of rigid lines and angles and the soft and harmonious color and movement of a liberated shape. Balance is key here. The lines are flexible, but the cutting and styling techniques are precise. To achieve the complete look in your chair, follow these steps using the new CHI Ionic Shine Shades.

Section the head into five sections in a zigzag from the highest point of the head to the highest point of the ear.
Take diagonal forward partings and distribute the hair perpendicular with a medium projection. Sculpt parallel to your fingers.
Work consistently on both sides. Position your fingers parallel to the parting to create a graduated concave in the lower nape area.
At the sides, distribute the hair perpendicular out of the zigzag with a diagonal backward parting.
The large triangle at the top of the head is projected toward the crown area. Use the scoop technique to create softness and increase layers toward the front.
Distribute the contour line in the natural fall and fine-tune the form line.
Mix CHI Ionic Shine Shades ¾ part 4RV and ¼ part 3N with 1 part CHI Color Generator 10-volume (Formula A). Apply the color to the root area about 1 inch wide.
Apply the color first at the roots in the zigzag parting.
Mix CHI Ionic Shine Shades 1 part 9 S with 1 part CHI Color Generator 10-volume (Formula B) and apply to the pre-lightened area from ends to midshaft to the color at the roots in the zigzag. Isolate the sections with foil.
On the left side, apply CHI Ionic Shine Shades 1 part 5RV with 1 part CHI Color Generator 10-volume (Formula C) from ends to midshaft and blend together with the roots.
On the right side, mix CHI Ionic shine shades 1 part 7 C with orange additive and 1 part CHI Color Generator 10-volume (Formula D). Start applying the color at the ends and work to the midshaft. Blend this with the color at the roots.
