Triangular graduation round layers



The diagram shows the main black-colored section. You can see its incline. The orienting inclines are the slopes of the cheekbone and the jaw. Then we start to turn the blue colored additional sections pivotally. The litte red arrows show the over-direction back to the previous section. You can also see the construction of the side. The additional blue-colored sections are parallel to the main section. We move from the main section up to the internal part of the shape. Each section is parallel to the previous one. The red arrow shows the over-direction on the side. Each section is directed to the last section that was constructed behind the ear. The green pecked line shows the expanded shape. You can also see the silhouette of the first section that was build in the center of the back of the head. The red pecked arrow shows the elevation and the over-direction into the expanded shape in the frontal area.

The green pecked line at the bottom of the diagram shows the length range and the geometries of this design. Triangular graduation can have square or triangular geometry of the line. We do not build it with round geometry. The round line is possible only in the combination of round layers and triangular graduation. You can find this design in combination course. Triangular graduation can have square or triangular geometry of the line. You can see on this diagram that the shape is built with the natural parting. It is shown in black pecked line. We separate additional blue-colored sections on the side. We move from the back of the head to the face. On the side the sections are separated from the natural parting. The long red arrow shows the over-direction on the side into the expanded shape. The green pecked line shows the expanded shape. Here you can see the triangular geometry very well. Two planar surfaces join in the center. The red pecked arrows show the over-direction into the expanded shape.

Triangular graduation with round layers. When do we construct this design? Pure triangular graduation has bulky weight at the external part of the shape. But if your client doesn’t want a heavy design with a fixed parting, then you should combine graduation with round layers. Thus you will make the shape more flexible, more textural and allow the fringe to move freely. Your client will be able to direct the fringe to the right and to the left, and it won’t depend on the parting.

First we separate the main sections. The central section must be right in the middle of the head. Check it, putting your fingers behind the client’s ears. You must make sure that the section is right in the center. The construction of the design depends on it, as well as the balance. You must practice to learn to see the center. There mustn’t be any shift even 5 millimeters.

The next sections will tell us where the weight accumulation stops. We separate them a little below the center. Watch the edge of hair growth and the top of the head, locate the center and separate the sections a little lower. After that we start the construction of the silhouette through the central section. Study the diagram carefully. It is impossible to construct designs if you don’t know their diagrams. You must learn them be heart. We start the construction from the central section. Stand where you can see the silhouette. Triangular geometry consists of two planar surfaces. If you are building this one, you must put the ruler at the center of the section perpendicularly and stand where it points. You must stand in front of the planar surface. Then you should tilt the client’s head to the side so that you could see the silhouette.
