Isolate the top.
Begin the cut in front of the temple area. Take a vertical section and pull straight out. Cut to finger length.
Continue section all the way around the head all along the rounds of the head.
Below the rounds, pull along nape, cut to connect the nape to the length along the rounds.
Along the face frame, direct forward to temple and point cut into the ends to leave a soft face frame.
For color, create a triangle section slightly off center from behind fringe to crown. Pre-lighten everything outside of triangle with enlightener with 10 volume.
Cover the pre-lightened area and apply Aveda Intense 3RV with 10 volume and place in foil.
In foils, isolate several selected sections to retain base color. Continue to lift the rest of the hair.
Create a halo section over the crown. Add the orange color (customize to client’s taste) below the occipital. Apply the shade from roots to ends in most areas.
In some sections the orange will go from roots to midlengths. All short hair is colored orange. Cover and protect with foil.
Continue through to the top placing the orange on pre-lightened hair only. At the fringe, apply the orange to the pre-lightened area at the root.
Direct the fringe forward and apply the customized intense plum to the unlightened area.
“Color melt” the customized purple to the ends in selected foils on the longer side. Process for 15 minutes, shampoo and condition.
Refine the cut on dry hair. Begin on the side. Pull out with a comb and point cut to cross check.
At crown lift up and point cut to the desired length.
At the nape, comb the hair as it is to be worn. Point cut an inverted U to create softness and then blend the nape into the crown.
At the side, allow the hair to fall forward. Remove length at the nape, leaving isolated pieces.
Along the top, direct forward and slide cut to remove bulk.
Lift up hair from the Mohawk section. Direct forward and slide cut to leave length forward.
Along the sides, lift up horizontal sections and remove select sections of the black hair.
At the fringe direct the hair forward and cut to the desired length, straight across and then remove select longer, darker pieces.
