Now, normally I would pivot all the way around this front. But I want this really long, I want it down her face. So I am going to pull straight back and just cut off. I am over directing it back a little bit to keep my length right up against my finger, straight up.
I don't use a guide, but that's only one sixteenth of an inch of the blade is actually exposed. So I can cut myself but I can't cut anything off, unless I stick it out, and that's just going to depend if she gives me a hard time or not.
This could work just exactly the way it's done right now. I don't really have to do anything more to it, but in order to get that drunken stupor hairstyling technique, I need to put more texture right in here.
And normally what I do is just kind of scrape off in horizontal sections all the way down. But Geek was curious about a technique called spanking. So I am going to spank the whole top. Just twist the hair, like a twist cut.
If you can put your head down just a bit. And then with the blade, right in 90 degree angle to the hair, we are going to tap it. And you are going to come up a little bit, and see how I am releasing hair now, just a little bit of texture.
I have got from right above the parietal to right above the parietal, just behind the crown, that's really all I need. And I like squares.
If you wanted to do this with scissors, you would be doing the same thing, but it will be called splintering instead of spanking, and you would go in, just with the tips of your shears, and just splinter the hair all the way up. You get the same thing. But a razor is more intimidating. Sometimes you need them.
Okay. That is going to give me solid hair with shorter hairs all around it, at a very uneven rate. That's good for here, because it will stand up. If this is longer, I want it to lay down in her face and I want it to be here, so I am going to do something different.
