Forward Graduation

1 – The back is sectioned away from the Front using an Alice Band section.

2 – An inch backward diagonal section is taken and combed to the hairs natural fall.

3 – The hair is cut from the shortest to longest point at the required angle. The hair above the ear is the longest point and guideline for the length – do not cut this.

4 – Backward diagonal sections are then taken to meet the Alice Band section and the guideline is followed.

5 – Follow 1 to 4 on the opposite side. Check the balance by using your mirror. Take a section from above The ear on each side, pull both down, use mirror to check. Take a section from the very front on each side and repeat.

You can start your forward graduation from the bottom and work up to avoid cutting the length.
