  2. Pivot remaining section from center. Overdirect each section back, maintaining length at corners. Point-cut sections to create looser texture. Work diagonal forward partings from crown down into recession area, again take central section, using underneath as guide, cut layering angle to blend lengths.

  4. Take central profile section back from forehead to crown. Using crown-length as guide, cut section to follow shape of head.
  1. Pivot vertical section off crown. Cut round layer in. From crown forward, take diagonal back sections, continue rounded layers, releasing more weight from center.
