Artist tip: Start at the center for an even outcome.

Step 3: Continue taking sections until the entire back section has been completed.

Step 4: Once you have reached the top section, cut vertically to create texture, and do this across for the entire top section.

Step 5: Comb the hair straight down and check for inconsistencies and even without elevating the hair.

Step 6: To add more texture, take 1-inch square section from the top, comb straight up and point cut.

Step 7: Comb side sections straight down and tilt the head to the opposite direction without lifting the hair cut the front to desired length.

Step 8: For bang section using triangle method, comb up a vertical section and cut diagonally (towards yourself) and pull each sub section to the middle.

Artist tip: Use CHI Bond & Seal as a cutting agent.

Step 9: Starting at the crown, comb all the hair forward. Take a middle subsection and point cut to blend into the bangs. Take sections from the side, comb up, and point cut.

Step 10: Take the front section down and cut to desired length at an angle to leave the front longer.

Step 11: Go back with texturizing shears to add some texture and dimension in the bang area.
