On Stacey, I created long fluid layers with elevation by utilizing the feather plier blade of the straight-edge razor. I love cutting long layers with the plier blade because it creates soft seamless movement within the hair, allowing strands to breathe and come to life. The hair was prepared with Shine Luxe Shampoo and Whipped Treatment. For styling, I used Protective Thickening Lotion and Volume Foam. After applying these products, I round brush set the hair and pinned each section into a barrel curl. Once all the hair was set, I sprayed it with Holding Spray and used my diffuser to set the Holding Spray into the hair. I released the set and broke it up with my hands, pushing it into the shape shown using instinct and an artistic eye. I love the romantic, tumbling texture and the peek-a-boo face-frame; it’s a glamorous look any client would love to wear.
