STEP BY STEP THE FRENCH GIRL FRINGE

THE CUTTING STEP BY STEPS

1: Section the hair into the four clear areas as shown.

2: Start working in area 1 by taking horizontal sections and work towards the crown area, keeping the fingers parallel to the section with 0 degree elevation.

3: Release area 2. Connect area 2 and 1 by taking horizontal sections, work towards the top area, while creating a slight 10 degree graduation. Tip, tilt the head slightly to the opposite. Repeat on the opposite side by connecting area 3 and 1.

4: Soften the haircut by creating shallow 45 degree layers in areas 1, 2 and 3.

5: Continue in fringe area 4. Release area 4 and create a centre guideline, lift the hair 90 degrees and cut into progressive layers working from short to long. Over-direct each section to the first guideline and build up length.

6: Refine the haircut by creating round face-framing layers using a razor.

7: To give the haircut extra dimension, finalise the haircut with a slice cutting technique to remove any excess weight.

5: Place two more back to back foils with colour formula 2 directly after the last foil.

6: To finalize the foil application, place two more foils with colour formula 3.

7: Repeat steps 3 till 6 on the opposite side.

8: Apply the base colour formula 4 in between the foils on the root area and on the remaining lengths and ends.
