Eric: She has very long layers right now and we're going to stick with the long layers. We're just going to bring them slightly shorter than they were before, using a 75 degree angle within a concave layer and we're slicing into. And from there, we use a pivot point from the top of the head and we're going to follow all the way through that point.
My object of this is to connect the top layer to the bottom layer within a concave layer. And we're pivoting from the initial point. So this is the shape that we're looking for the shape that goes all the way through, comes to a pit stop forward and then the shape changes angle at this point for maximized movement.
I've to make sure these sections are very clean. A good way to find a very clean section within a haircut that is in a pivot point is to create triangles.

I've to make sure these sections are very clean. A good way to find a very clean section within a haircut that is in a pivot point is to create triangles within the haircut. It shouldn't be attached to one shape. I personally think that even within a romantic haircut, you should have a little bit of a modern feel to it.
So I believe that more people are just looking for versatility styles. We're just talking about Rihanna's asymmetrical bob of steel grey, it's still very hot. I personally like working with longer styles. That's just a personal preference. I see a lot of wavy hair out there which is something completely different from what we were doing a little while ago, before -- well maybe a year ago, everything was super straight. Now we see a little bit more movement and people are trying to realize what interrupt their hair and work within freestyles, so use their own texture.
That's what I like to do the most, still keeping quite long layers below her shoulders. We don't want anything sitting on her shoulders because that's going to disconnect the haircut from top to bottom. I just want to do something that's quite long, quite romantic, with a bit of a modern flare to it.
Resler: Do you like it?
Heidi: Yeah, I like it. I couldn't tell you because, you know -
Resler: Well, yeah --
Heidi: It's not -- it looks really good.
Heidi: Yeah, very nice.
Eric: We're lifting the hair. I am rolling it on it. Here we're doing what we call softer strokes. Softer strokes, these are very simple to do, probably we'll create a little bit of lift. Make sure you get to the end, and then roll the hair around the brush. Then we break it up slightly, just creating a very soft flare.
It's a very common question, and the question that you just asked me is usually because of many reasons we've got little pieces here. Yeah, that's static of course a little bit. And here I left, see, you know, a few pieces that may become row pieces. The way you get rid of it is very simple. A little bit of hair spraying in it, over the surface of the hair, not really press it down. What you want to do this is slightly caress it off until all the pieces are gone. Then you have a shape that follows through.
Coming back to what that we've talked about and this is the movement coming back. And see, this is the line that we created today coming into a tear drop, down the side and the rest of the layers are coming all forward, the same tan at the opposite side. A flow that comes from grown out banks from the corner of the eye, coming to about cheek bones -- she has very defined cheek bones, so we want to make sure we use it and then just crunch it and create softness by keeping hair away from the face. We want to make sure we show the bottom above her, here as well.
