So, we want a seven blade on now, seven F that is. I'm bringing his ears forward out of the way but not—but this is quite important. When you pull his ears out of the way, you don’t want to be in a situation where you pull in one more than the other. You’ve got to hold his head in your hands, bring these forward, not too tight so that you're not changing the contour of the skin because you want this to be set symmetrical when you're finished. And going down the side to his neck, again it’s a bit like doing the side of the head. You don’t want any off the top there. We want all this from the side.
Now, we took the hair from the throat, from the occiput, sorry. Hold the breast bone up and now, we are just taking a little bit further down each side, just a little bit down. I'm going to follow that around, taking all of these from the sides of his neck, and over on to his shoulders.
At this point—switch that off for a second—at this point, stand him up and put him into something of a show pose because you want to actually see how far you're going to go back on his shoulders because we can go right round to the back of the shoulder with the clippers but you do need him standing up for that because you wont actually—you get a false impression of how far you're going back if he’s sitting down. So just again, clear that off.
Just run in off his long furnishings, tie it down and then just bring them up because you don’t want a sudden step. Right down to the back there.
