TECHNICAL STEPS

  • Step 1

    Create a profile parting from the forehead, finishing at the top crown.

  • Step 2

    To start, take a triangular section from the profile, finishing at the high recession.

  • Step 3

    Repeat the same process on the opposite side. Secure both sections with TIGI Pro sectioning clips.

  • Step 4

    Put on protective gloves. Take a radial parting from the profile towards the ear, on both sides of the head. To continue, take a diagonal slice and use seamless weaves.

  • Step 5

    Place the weave onto a foil and apply Formula 1 from the new growth through to lengths and ends. Continue until the section is complete. Repeat the same process on the opposite side.

  • Step 6

    Progressing into the triangular section, take a diagonal slice and seamless weaves. Continue until the section is complete. Repeat on the opposite side.

  • Step 7

    Progress onto the back section, take horizontal partings and apply Formula 2 to the new growth. With a freehand blending technique, apply Formula 3 to the lengths and ends.

  • Step 8

    Continue this process until the section is complete.

  • Step 9

    Progressing onto the last, remaining section, take diagonal partings and apply Formula 2 to the new growth. With a freehand blending technique apply Formula 3 to lengths and ends. Complete the same process on the opposite side.

  • Step 10
