Front Back
The widest area of the head, starting at the temples and ending at the bottom of the crown. This area is easily found by placing a comb flat on the sides of the head: it is found where the head starts to curve away from the comb, also referred to as the crest area.
Parietal Ridge
Highest point on the top of the head. This area is easily located by placing a comb flat on the top of the head. The comb will rest on the highest point.
This is the area between the apex and the back of the parietal ridge. On many people, this is often flat and the site of cowlicks or whorls. Because of this, it is extremely important to pay special attention to this area when cutting.
This is the area at the back part of the neck and consists of the hair below the occipital bone. This is located by taking a horizontal parting or making a horizontal line across the back of the head at the occipital bone.
This area is a triangular section that begins at the apex and ends at the front corners. This area can be located by placing a comb on top of the head so that the middle of the comb is balanced on the apex. The spot where the comb leaves the head in front of the apex is where this area begins. Note how this area, when combed into a natural falling position, falls no farther than the outer corners of the eyes.
