14 Cutting Shapes There are 4 basic cutting shapes you will learn on your VRQ level 2 qualification. Once you have gained confidence and are competent on these shapes, you can then build on these to create a variety of different looks. 1) One length 2) Uniform layer 3) Short graduation 4) Long graduation

15 Angles This section runs vertically ↕. Vertical sections can go from the centre front hair line to the centre back nape. Sometimes they are shorter. This section runs horizontally ↔. Horizontal sections can go across the nape, across the crown or round the back of the head from ear to ear. Here, the horizontal guideline runs across the head just above the ears. The vertical guideline runs from the crown to form a ‘T’. This section runs diagonally Diagonal sections can go from left to right or from right to left . They are usually positioned to follow the shape of the head.

16 At what angle is this section of hair held?
Uniform Layer Angles This section of hair has been lifted 90° to the head. At what angle is this section of hair held? These sections of hair have also been lifted 90° to the head. This hair is held down close to the head at a 0° angle.

17 Guidelines Why is it important to follow guidelines.
How do you cross check a hair cut and why? To determine the finished length and shape of the required haircut To ensure a methodical progression of the cut To enable accuracy The opposite way to the way you cut (vertically or horizontally) Use mirror to determine balance To ensure accuracy
