Look One: ROMANTIC FRINGE.

Shine and smoothness in the interior contrast the choppy perimeter creating a young, romantic look. A small amount of  styling cream controls a slight flick over ears to create added interest.

Look Two: FEMININE FLIP.

Light and airy, this wispy look is soft and feminine. A light misting of of a volumizing lotion will give essential hold as you re-direct fringe using a vent brush.

Look Three: EDGY ELEGANCE.

Emphasize height and random texture with sides gently swept back will create an edgy shape. A light dusting  of a texturizing powder like Schwarzkopf “OSIS Dust It” easily amps up texture.

Bonus Cutting Directions:


 1. CUT THE PERIMETER.
Using a texturizing scissor, establish a textured perimeter. 

2. ESTABLISH LENGTH OF YOUR GUIDE. 
 Cut using your beta scissors holding the hair straight out following the shape of the head.

3. CUT LAYERS IN The BACK. 
For each one inch crescent shaped section, cut to the length of the guide and Follow the curvature of the head from guide to nape. 

4. CUT LAYERS IN FRONT. 
Still using texturizing scissors like Rusk Beta Blades, use the original guide to determine your length and cut the hair parallel to the head shape.
