Setting Directions for The Flip
The bang 6 inches; the sides 4 inches; top 8 inches; crown 8 inches blending to 3 inches in the nape.
Part out a small amount of hair at the hairline over the left eye and direct it to the center forehead. Later this will be formed into a curl. Set full-base rollers #1 and #2. Part out a very small amount of hair in the left forehead (see dotted line) and include it with half base roller #3. This action will insure a soft sweeping bang effect without separations. Set triangular full base rollers #4 and #5 which will produce a 10 oclock shaping effect in the comb-out. Rollers #6 and #7 are set in the same direction. Set one counter clockwise, off base curl and two half base clockwise curls in front of the right ear. Rollers #8, #9 and #10 are full base for a neutral movement. Radial motion, full base rollers #11 and #12 and a half base roller #13 will produce a 2 oclock shaping effect in the comb-out. Finish with one clockwise off base curl. Rollers #14, #15 and #16 are full base rollers for volume. Form a shaping in back of rollers #12 and #13. Place three counter clockwise curls in the shaping. Roller #17 is a full base roller placement. Set half-base rollers #18, #19 and #20 for less volume. Rollers #21 through #25 are indentation rollers and will establish the flip effect Set two off base fill-in curls behind the ear toward the back of the head and three full base fill-in curls at the nape.
Brush and relax all of the hair into the movement of the set. Begin cushioning in the crown for volume. Blend the bang section into the crown area with the same foundation technique. Interlock the crown and bang section with the side. Surface brush the bang section toward the right to blend with the volume movement on the right side. Lightly brush the volume of the crown and the sides into the indentation flip movement of the nape and sides. Reinforce the flip by holding the hair down while backcombing in an upward direction. Hold the indentation movement close to the scalp while lifting the volume areas with a tail comb. A bouncy flip with flair through the bang section and a saucy up turned effect on each side demonstrate the simple casual look for medium length hair.
