1. Distribute lengths naturally using the wide teeth of the comb. Use the sculpting comb to visualize the desired length and angle of the perimeter.
2. Use the shears and the comb to distribute the hair naturally with minimal tension. Position the comb horizontally and notch just above the tip of the nose.
3. Extend the diagonal-back line on the right side. Use natural distribution with no projection and a diagonal-back comb position. Notch while pointing the tips of the shears away from the face. Use minimal tension as you work over the ear. Work to the center nape.
4. Return to the front and extend the diagonal-back line on the left side. Continue to use comb control with natural distribution and no projection. Notch toward the back as you work to the center back.
5. Next, section the head with a horseshoe-shaped parting along the upper crest.
6. In the center back exterior, take a vertical parting. Distribute straight out, position your fingers vertically and notch. The lengths below the occipital are kept to maintain weight along
7. As you work toward the right side, adjust your finger position to maintain the solid perimeter, especially near the ear. Work to the front hairline using a nonparallel finger position.
8. Return to the center back and use the same techniques to work to the opposite side.
9. Alter your finger position as needed to maintain perimeter weight at the side. Work to the front hairline to complete the exterior.
10. Release the interior lengths and establish natural distribution. Determine the point of origin and pre-section the interior into pivotal partings.
11. Work toward the left side. Note that the resulting interior lengths may slightly overlap the previously sculpted exterior. Sculpt parallel to the head as you work around the crown toward the right side.
12. Remove excess moisture. Then use a paddle brush to air form. Start in the nape and direct the lengths, without lifting the base.
