Mazella&Palmer’s salon creative haircut is a short overlapping layered haircut with a strong visual outline and a bowl fringe created for the Fitz collection and demonstrated exclusively for MyHairDressers.com.
Jean Baptiste Mazella creates a triangle section on the top of the head surrounded by a horseshoe section, two side sections and a sloping diagonal section in the back. He starts on the right hand side of the lower back section to create a flat graduated shape and repeats on the left side. This will overlap, which will then create a guide through the centre. On the right and left hand side panels he cuts a flat line, working these sections to the back to connect.
In the horseshoe fringe sections he cuts a round line from the centre down towards just above the top of the ear and repeats the same process with a further parallel section, over directing down and continuing the guide throughout the section. On the third section Jean Baptiste continues his process with slight elevation to form a graduated curved perimeter and repeats the same process on the second side.
In the triangle section, he takes a vertical section on the top to the right hand side, uses the back layering as a guide and cuts an A-line shape with slight elevation from the back of the ear towards just above the jaw line throughout the section, connecting to the outline, with slight elevation. He then takes a vertical section on the left hand side through the top and cuts a square line, continuing with vertical sections across and over-directing to the first section.
The finished result is a flat symmetrical silhouette supporting an offset weightless disconnection and a partially concealed bowl fringe.
