  • Wash your client’s hair then while it’s wet establish a natural parting and section it using an asymmetric horseshoe.
  • Starting at the temples cut the hair with scissors graduated from long to short and meet both sides at the nape.
  • Connect the top into the graduated back and sides using the guide created.
  • Through the top point cut at a 30 degree angle leaving the side closest to the parting longest and blend the opposite side into the existing guide.
  • Blast dry and create some movement using a pomp brush.
  • Finish off cut using scissor-over-comb and detailer trimmers.
  • Finally, style with some matt paste.

Maintain it

To maintain this look at home be sure to wash you hair to give you the best final result.

Dry your hair with a pomp brush or just scrunch it with your fingers to create more texture. Finish with matt paste. Use a thumbnail sized amount and run it through your hands until it’s almost transparent, then evenly distribute it to cover all of your hair from the root up.
