At Matrix Destination a few weeks back, Matrix educator Tara Koenig (@tarakoenig_hair) gave an entirely new meaning to business in the front, party in the back. Demonstrating a disconnected bi-level haircut, Koenig showcases a fun style for men that involves a ton of texture and movement.
Get the Look:
- Section hair. Be sure to stay at the parietal ridge for the top section, create a section at the crown to be your guide and then a narrow section down the back.
- When using a scissor-over-comb technique, having control of the hair is crucial. Because you're going short on the sides, you can eliminate a large amount of bulk right off the bat to maintain control.
- Start longer than your end goal. This is a good way to get rid of bulk and add disconnection while maintaining control.
- When working on the top of the head, position your client lower in their chair to avoid over-directing forwards or backwards.
- Starting with the crown section, point cut to your desired length. Direct straight back to create bulk at the crown.
- Create a perimeter length, but ensure that it has texture and movement.
- After length is cut, go through and determine where bulk and texture need to be taken off.
- To remove weight without removing length, pull hair straight up, place scissors in and work bulk out moving in an upwards motion.
- Style as desired.
