MEASUREMENTS & STRUCTURES
NOT ALL MANNEQUINS ARE MEASURED EQUALLY—LITERALLY.
Pivot Point measures mannequin hair using a 90° projection angle from the head. The structure graphics illustrate the true length progression to give you a better understanding of how long the hair is and how it will fall.
Other manufacturers may measure their mannequin directly on the head from front to back, indicating one length in total--not providing a true measurement of how long the hair actually is.
Structure refers to the length arrangement across the curves of the head. All hair components and mannequins are identified by their length arrangements. The various length arrangements create the shape of the sculpted form. Pivot Point's four basic forms are known as solid, graduated, increase-layered and uniformly layered forms. These forms will help you determine which length arrangement best suits your educational or salon needs.
Shorter exterior lengths progress to longer interior lengths, making the hair look like it's one length. Ideal for creating "bob" and one-length hair sculptures, perming and coloring techniques.
Shorter exterior lengths progress to longer interior lengths. Designed for men's sculpture, perming and coloring techniques.
Shorter interior lengths progress to longer exterior lengths. Ideal for longer layered sculptures, long hair designs, perming and coloring techniques.
UNIFORMLY LAYERED FORM
Equal lengths consistent throughout. Ideal for medium-to-short hair sculptures, thermal and wet designing, perming and coloring techniques.
