  • Part off the top and crown of the head by creating a horseshoe shaped section around the head following the bottom edge of the vertical curve down into the mid occipital area.
  • Using a Sam Villa Signature Series 7” Dry Cutting Shear and Sam Villa Signature Series Short Cutting Comb, cut the lower portion scissor-over-comb using the thickness of the comb as a guide for length at the bottom and graduating to about ¾ inch at the top of the section. Switch between the wide length of the comb for removing length and the fine teeth for detailing.
  • Create a new horseshoe shaped parting right at the top of the vertical curve.
  • Use vertical sections through this area, elevate hair to 90 degrees horizontal and continue a graduated finger angle using the bottom section as your guide, continuing longer towards the top.
  • Take a one-inch section down the center of the top section stretching from the crown to the forehead to create guide for the top.
  • Elevate the section straight up 90 degrees vertical from the top of the head and cut from shortest at the crown to longest at the front hairline (approximately 2 inches at the crown to 5 inches at the hairline).
  • Continue taking parallel sections using the center section for a traveling guide and continue the same elevation until you reach the detachment at the round of the head.
  • Take diagonal back section between the top and the detached area in the round of the head and use a Sam Villa Reversible Blending Shear to create a few points of connection between the two lengths. Your finger angle will be steeper at the front edge where the length on top is longest.
