I’m about three-quarters of the way through my third row.
I did want to point out in the back you’re doing that u-shape to help emphasize that natural flow of the hair. You also can put more cylinders and more hairs in the head. As I go and transition to the side here, you will notice that it is now horizontal. The reason for this is the sides are always weaker. The main reason is that it lacks so much of a hairline in the back. Always also around the hairline, it’s going to be more of a fragile type of hair just because of that transition on the head. So when I’m working towards the front, I’m always working with a horizontal on the sides. So horizontal on the side, and then I transition to the back.
A couple of tips that I want to point out is that when I’m working through my row here, I put everything side by side, with no natural hair in between. This will build that maximum density as I work up through the head. Once I get to the top, I’ll start to space them out to allow that natural to come through. But I just wanted to show you here everything is lying right next to each other. It’s slightly away from the scalp. You have enough room to give. She could throw her hair up if she wanted to. It’s not going to harm her horizontal on the side again that deep u-shape in the back, allowing me to add more space for my next row and then continuing to the other side.
#9 Slowly Introduce New Color
The last thing I want to point out is that, as I said, I’m doing something called a somber, a soft ombre between ombre and balayage. So you will see that I started to add a little bit of that dimension into her hair. Through here, I started with solid blonde, and as I work up, I’m slowly introducing those darker to mid colors.
It looks identical to row three because we’re putting so many bundles in her hair. After all, she naturally has that thick, dense hair. So you’ll see on the sides it’s still that horizontal, and it’s still u-shaped in the back. This is going to be the last row that I do side-by-side with no natural hair in between.
As I go to the next row in the back, I’ll start to space out my cylinders to allow that natural to come through on the sides I will always stay horizontal because I always need that maximum density.
#11 Compensate for Weight Difference
So I’ve now completed her full install. I wanted to point out that on my last row here, row number five. She does have a heavy side part on this side over here. So I have raised the section on this side a little bit higher than it is on the other side to help compensate for that weight difference from her heavy part to her not-heavy part.
So on the side where I’m still horizontal side by side with no natural hair. But as I go back here, you’ll notice I have spaced it out. My row number four it’s one cylinder space apart. My row number five is almost two leaving that space to allow that natural hair to come through.
#12 Double Check
Once I finish my application, I like to go back row by row and double-check my sectioning and my cylinders. As you’re going through sometimes, you can get tiresome, so you want to go back through and ensure that everything is nice and tight so that they don’t have any fallout as they come back.
Now that I’m finished with the installation, I will do the haircut. When hair cutting with extensions, you typically want to use a feather razor. Because it helps give you those rough edges as you go through it. So it’s going to help mirror that client’s natural texture.
So you will notice that my client here, my model has more of a horizontal line. So I will carve out this top layer to help it diffuse within the extensions. I’m going to do that last. Because I’m going to create that layering effect first within the extensions, see how it falls and then only cut the client’s hair as much as you need to.
#14 Feathering for Face-Framing
Taking where her natural stops. That’s where I’m going to start. softly feathering, creating a face-framing effect, it helps that transition from the natural to wherever you’re ending your extensions. Just creating that movement within her extensions.
So now I’m just going to take the top layer of her hair, just above row five. So what I’m doing now as I notice I can still see her structured line. So I will go to her where that line appears and help carve it out. Now you don’t want to go on top with your feather razor. That’s not your intention because all that’s going to do is create more layering and shorten the client’s hair. You intend to help break up this weight line from having dense hair or a structured haircut. So when working with the client natural, you will work from that underneath only to remove density, not linked. You can see how it just starts to diffuse that line and disappear within the extensions. So what I’m doing now as I notice I can still see her structured line. So I will go to her where that line appears and help carve it out. You have that excellent perfect application. It’s easy to section and get out of the way. So I’m going to finish up her haircut, and then I’m going to get to styling.
