Step Three Brushing on thin layer of adhesive glue
3a. Brushing on thin layer of adhesive glue. After all of the tape markers have been placed, Brian is ready to brush on a thin layer of adhesive.
He applies a 1/2" track of acrylic glue directly behind the first couple tape markers, starting at the back and following along your biological hairline. IMPORTANT: Don’t get the front edge too thick!
3b. Feathering the adhesive onto scalp. After brushing on an even layer of adhesive, Brian removes the tape markers, starting in the back and working his way forward. He uses a technique called "feathering" to smooth and even out the adhesive layer.
To feather: Brian wipes his finger gently along the front edge of the wet adhesive while slowly moving it back along his scalp. Continue to glue in small sections (about 1/2" wide), removing one tape marker at a time and feathering as he goes.
3c. Removing the last front tape marker. To complete feathering, Brian saves the front area for last by making one final horse-shoe shape that will now connect both completed sides.
Brian removes the first tape marker but leave the second.
