Okay, here's what you all have been waiting for. I've taken a few pics to give you all an understanding of what I am talking about. If you follow the steps that Iíve laid out you should be able to thin a hairline on any lf.

 

 

You will need hair clips, a rat tail comb, thinning shears, and tweezers.

 

1. With the rat tail comb part the hair. Include the baby hair and a little bit of the hair from the hairline. (Do this across the whole front section of the hairline; although it is not shown in the pics).  

2. Braid the parted hair to separate the hair from the rest of the hair. Place a clip on the hair to keep the hair out of the way.

3. Part a small section about 1/8" to 1/4" in size directly behind the braided hair. This should be about 15 to 20 strands of hair.

 

You will start at the back of the small section of 15 to 20 strands of hair.

 

4. Holding the small section in one hand and the thinning shears in the other, sparsely separate about 5 to 6 strands of hair with the flat surface of the thinning shears. (Remember you are working at the back of the small section, not the front. The flat surface of the thinning shears should be as close to the knots as possible.)

5. Close the shears so that the sharp teeth cut the 5 to 6 strands that were separated.

6. Tweeze any short hairs that are sticking up.

7. Take the section that has just been thinned and place a clip on it. (Do this so you do not thin this section again)

8. Repeat the process starting at step 3 for the whole front hairline, and temples.

9. After you are done comb the hair to determine whether you like the result.

 

If the density is to your liking then stop, if not, then continue. Remember move very slowly until you have your desired density for the hairline. Move to sections of hair that have not been thinned yet. Do not continue to thin the same sections or you will have bald spots.

Do not thin too much. Remember your unit may thin out a little later.

This process is tedious, takes hours to complete, but if you take your time the end result will be great.
