Hey, Ash! It's me Eddy. I finally got a few moments and I figured I would show you how to do that -- finding your points. This is our longest miniature and I really can't cut it because it's my boss's and we use it throughout to do demonstrations.
But if you cut something that's maybe longer than shoulder length, what you want to do is underneath here, you want to make sure that you have left enough so that you don't have a weak front.
What I have done on this one is I have sectioned out a little piece, so you don't know where I am coming from, it's a vertical parting coming from the top and right down to above the ear, what I was talking about was finding the length that you want your final outcome to be and then you are going to take that point up to the top, connect it with the length that you want at the top and draw a straight line between them. That's square layering, that's going to be concave layering. It just depends on how you want the final to fall.
If you want waves in through the top and curls in through the bottom, you are going to leave this top really long. So, you have the opportunity for it to wave down the sides. If you want it curly all the way down, you are going to keep this top piece short and you are going to keep the bottom pieces longer. You are also going to drop out just a little bit of this hair so you get a very, very, very solid line, comb the rest up and either cut straight across or on an angle.
Again, that's going to be your concave, that's going to be your square and your square can be from any place up. It just depends on how long you want your outcome and always make sure that you drop just a little bit off on the bottom, otherwise you are going to have a very, very, very weak front. I hope that helps you.
