Winter is in full swing and the weather is anything but summery, but this floral undercut has us thinking otherwise. Jessica Zeinstra (@jessicazeinstra), Andis’ global education manager, walks us through a quick and easy peek-a-boo style incorporating a lotus. Here's how:
- Begin by sectioning the hair and then dampen.
- Tip the head slightly away and use the Andis Supra ZR Clipper and remove the bulk with the #2 blade.
- When approaching the occipital bone, scoop outwards in a c-stroke motion to leave more length near the parting line.
- Keep the head tipped forward and use the Andis Slimline Pro Li Trimmer to begin the design on the right side below your part line.
- Continue cutting toward the opposite side, creating a half-circle shape.
- Start your first petal at the bottom center of the nape, and curve up towards the right to meet with the arc, just above the mastoid belt.
- Repeat this step on the left side.
- Begin the second petal on the right, where the first petal meets the arc, and work in a downward curve motion, and then back up to the right parting line.
- Repeat this step on the other side.
- To create the second layer of petals, start in the center of the arc, just above the occipital bone and work in a downward curve motion to the right, stopping between the peak of the two previously cut petals.
- Then, curve back up to the center of the second petal.
- Repeat on the left side.
- It is best to put in your rough draft first, then go back in and define the shape.
- Define the perimeter lines, by removing the excess hair outside of the petals.
- For an ultra-smooth finish, use the Andis ProFoil Shaver and clean up the nape.
- Once finished, style hair as desired.
