This means that it can be easily straightened for a sleek look or enhanced with products to create defined waves or curls. Additionally, wavy, medium hair can hold various hairstyles such as updos, braids, and ponytails without losing its shape. This type of hair offers a wide range of styling options, making it the most versatile choice among the given options.

  • 5. 

    A curved part is recommended for a client with a?

    • A.

      Low forehead

    • B.

      Receding hairline

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    B. Receding hairline
    Explanation
    A curved part is recommended for a client with a receding hairline because it helps to create the illusion of fuller hair and can help to camouflage the areas where the hairline is thinning or receding. By creating a curved part, the hair can be styled in a way that adds volume and depth to the hairline, making it less noticeable. This can help to enhance the overall appearance of the client's hairstyle and give the illusion of a fuller head of hair.

The temples are wider compared to the middle third, creating a square-like shape.

By incorporating curved lines, a design can become more inviting and visually pleasing, creating a sense of harmony and balance.

    • A.

      Avoid curls & bangs over the forehead

    • B.

      Style the hair at the nape with an upward movement

    • C.

      Keep the style close to the head at the nape

    • D.

      Use any hairstyle because all hairstyles are flattering to this profile

    Correct Answer
    C. Keep the style close to the head at the nape
    Explanation
    When styling the hair of a client with a convex profile, it is recommended to keep the style close to the head at the nape. This is because a convex profile means that the forehead and nose protrude forward, creating a rounded appearance. By keeping the style close to the head at the nape, it helps to balance out the facial features and create a more harmonious look. This technique avoids adding volume or bulk at the back of the head, which could further emphasize the convex shape.

      Zigzag

    • B.

      Center

    • C.

      Side

    • D.

      Diagonal

    Correct Answer
    C. Side
    Explanation
    A side parting is used to direct hair across the top of the head and helps develop height on top. By creating a deep part on one side of the head, the hair is pushed to the opposite side, giving the appearance of fuller hair. This technique is especially beneficial for individuals with thin hair, as it adds volume and creates the illusion of thicker hair.

  • 14. 

    Which hair type generally hugs the head shape due to the lack of body or volume?

    • A.

      Fine, curly hair

    • B.

      Coarse, wavy hair

    • C.

      Medium, straight hair

    • D.

      Fine, straight hair

    Correct Answer
    D. Fine, straight hair
    Explanation
    Fine, straight hair generally hugs the head shape due to the lack of body or volume. This type of hair is typically thin and lacks thickness, which makes it naturally lie close to the scalp. The straight texture also contributes to this characteristic, as it doesn't have the natural curl or wave to add volume or movement.

Emphasis can be achieved through various design techniques such as size, color, contrast, or placement. By creating a strong emphasis, designers can guide the viewer's attention and create a visual hierarchy within the design.

    When working with a client who has large hips or broad shoulders you should create a style with?

    • A.

      A shorter length

    • B.

      Greater volume

    • C.

      Tight curls

    • D.

      Less volume

    Correct Answer
    B. Greater volume
    Explanation
    When working with a client who has large hips or broad shoulders, creating a style with greater volume can help balance out their proportions. By adding more volume to the hair, it can create the illusion of a more balanced and proportionate silhouette. This can be achieved through techniques such as teasing, backcombing, or using volumizing products. Adding volume to the hair can help draw attention away from the hips or shoulders and create a more harmonious overall look.

      Diagonal

    • D.

      Horizontal

    Correct Answer
    C. Diagonal
    Explanation
    Diagonal lines are used to emphasize or minimize facial features. Diagonal lines create movement and can draw attention to specific areas of the face, such as the cheekbones or jawline. They can also be used to create the illusion of length or width, depending on the desired effect. By angling the lines, the focus can be shifted away from certain features or enhanced to highlight others. Overall, diagonal lines are a versatile tool in makeup or hairstyling to emphasize or minimize different facial features.

    • D.

      A clean-shaved face

    Correct Answer
    A. A fairly close-trimmed beard & mustache
    Explanation
    For a male client with a wide face and full cheeks, recommending a fairly close-trimmed beard and mustache would be suitable. This style helps to create a more balanced and proportionate look by adding definition to the face. A neatly trimmed full beard might add more width to the face, while a grown-out, full beard may make the face appear even wider. A clean-shaved face would not provide any visual framing or contouring to the face.

    Explanation
    Vertical lines in a hairstyle create the illusion of length and narrowness.

    Smooth directional wave patterns are particularly useful when you wish to?

    • A.

      Soften square or rectangular features

      Narrow a round head shape

    • C.

      Widen a narrow head shape

    • D.

      Create a trendy, multi-textured look

    Correct Answer
    B. Narrow a round head shape
    Explanation
    Smooth directional wave patterns can be used to narrow a round head shape. Waves that flow in a specific direction can create the illusion of length and elongate the face. By adding smooth waves that move away from the face, the roundness of the head can be visually reduced, resulting in a narrower appearance. This technique is often used in hairstyling to balance and enhance different face shapes.

    B. Triangle
    Explanation
    A hairstyle with volume at the temples and some height at the top is recommended for clients with a triangle facial type.

By adding volume at the temples and height at the top, it helps to balance out the wider jawline and create the illusion of a more proportional face shape.
