There is a second kind of style that I want to share with you. As you know we've already completed a very soft, bridal look, but how do we go from this transition into something more editorial, a little more couture. We can start by taking all the pins out. This is a perfect example how quickly with using less pins even with the hair spray and the cocktail that I created for Tina in the beginning, I can still take it down, change her look, change her style because her personality, her lifestyle really dictates the option, the versatility, that we're seeing today and what our clients are actually requiring.
That's why it's really nice and important if you're going to create a look that's going to take you into another look that when you French layer it, it's really just about the volume, the fullness but yet you are not committed to that specific look, because you can easily brush it out, we get the control and the look. So even from the simple hairstyle that we did in the lab before the bridal, this could something that is just one second every evening look. I'm going to create something a lot more flora in the front, and I'm going to elaborate about to embellish it with just a little bit more of a texture, that's what I'm going to go for now, and I'm going to create a pufus(ph).
So since I know I want to focus on the crown area for my heights, I'm going to take a nice, about to a large circle at the top of the crown making sure that it's properly proportionate and balanced because I still have to take into consideration when you create any height, you've got to make sure you've incorporated the left side, the right side as well as the front and the back to get the proper height and sectioning that you're creating for the height in the back. It's just a simple little circle, looking at the contour shapes of the head, profile, stand behind, make sure to portion left side, right side, skim out your sections.
This is where hair dressers tend to lose it because they brush out the hair and then they don't know where to go with it once it's all been set. This is a great, great important factor. Know your zones, but also know exactly the placement, so it will not come out either lopsided or too far forward or too far back. There we go. Twisting clips just out of the way. Now I'm going to subdivide the front from the back. So you can see I'm still using the ears as a visual guideline and just for control proposes and sectioning proposes, I'm going to clip back away for right now.
So as you can see I'm still working with the proper zones. I'm still working with the front left, the front right. Her fringe is basically what's going to finish it off and definitely the entire back now and of course it's separate from the crown section. Now, the product that I said earlier, it's a Web, this is what the product, I like my choice. I think it's good, wonderful pomade because it really takes it from, we've talked about a very soft, simple style into the next level of couture or editorial.
Web is a unique specialty product, I always like to emulsify it in the jar first to kind of get all the products together, all the ingredients properly mixed. And you can see the consistency. It's a very gooey like product, typically hair dressers as well as the consumer would not think about putting a product of such and that's why I say it's a specialty product. I take a nice amount, so I am just zoning right now at the fringe, just to kind of saturate the pomade.
Again the more you apply the Web into the foundation, it's going to give you the hold and support, at the same time since I really want to defy the gravity, I want to make sure that it really gets in properly saturated. See how it just like - you start back combing and if it starts in trapping or capturing the back combing I know that I'm on the right direction and that's a good indicator. It's more of a visual as well as a feel is more important. Grab some more Web. See now you know why it's called Web.
