In this section you will learn how to design a haircut using over-direction, elevation, and tension.

Over-direction occurs when hair is pulled out of its natural position (either forward or backwards) and is used to create length or weight in a specific area. The shape you create is based on the type of over-direction you use. 

Elevation controls what technique you are using. The more elevation used the lighter the appearance. 

Tension is the amount of stress placed on the hair. Be careful to loosen tension in difficult areas such as the ears, crown, and hairlines.
