Gary Woo demonstrates a technique combining layering, graduation and disconnection to reduce weight and create volume. The video features essential tips on sectioning, suitability and texturising.

The final result is a fuller, rounder silhouette producing volume over the crown. The face is framed by the contours of the jaw line and fringe lengths. The careful balance of techniques and invisible disconnection maximises the proportion of weight and movement for a perfect outcome.
