In order to easily create straight partings, place the tip of your comb where you want the part to begin. Place the thumb of your free hand where you want the part to end and pull the comb along the scalp until you touch your thumb. Take some time to practice this now, I�ll wait.
The main reason for sectioning during a
haircut is to limit the amount of hair you are
working with in order to give you more control of
your work. This is the only time it is acceptable
to be a control freak.
Most of the haircuts in this book begin
with the same four basic sections.
First divide the hair in half by parting from behind one ear to the other across the top of the head.
Next, subdivide the back by parting from center top to center neckline.
Finally, subdivide the front area by parting from center top to the center of the front hairline. IMPORTANT: If the finished hairstyle is going to be worn with a definite part, use that part instead of a center part.
