I start this wispy and textured wolf cut by observing my model's head shape and where her head curves sit; I then plan on working with her curvatures for a tailored haircut. From there, I section out a 1" 'headband' section around her front hairline from temple to temple. Using my Feather Plier Razor, I intentionally carve her bangs (from recession to recession) in small sections from short to long, creating points for separation.
On the sides, I direct the hair forward, holding the section vertically and over directing the hair in my hand upward. I then cut again from short to long from recession to temple. Moving back, I create a horseshoe section from recession to recession, wrapping just under the crown. I direct this hair forward in about 2" sections utilizing my 'bangs' section as a guide. I carve in negative space throughout the sections to create movement and texture. I do the same technique moving back from the sides, pulling all the hair forward in 2" sections. While removing length to sit at our guide, I also continue to carve in negative space, removing weight and creating movement and texture in each section.
Once finished, I take a 1" vertical section at 90 degrees from the crown to the bangs, cutting from short to long again and creating little points. I then move the hair all around, making sure the layers are sitting how I like them with lots of kicks and flips and whimsical texture.
