Bastian Casaretto's salon creative haircut begins with a clean A-line outline cut on the skin, before he graduates the outline using elevation to start the internal shape. The mid-section in the back and side are layered from the nape working with the head shape and over-direction in the side areas to maintain a softer line towards the face. Finally, a low eye-line fringe is placed in balance adding contrast to the soft framing lengths of the perimeter to achieve a simple, crisp, clinical elegance that's pure perfection.
