Measurements & Structures – Pivot Point International

DID YOU KNOW?

NOT ALL MANNEQUINS ARE MEASURED EQUALLY–LITERALLY.

Hair Measurements Pivot Point Mannequins

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.

Hair Measurements Other Mannequins

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 LENGTH ARRANGEMENT

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.

Solid Form Pivot Point Hair

SOLID FORM
Shorter exterior lengths progress to longer interior lengths. Ideal for creating “bob” and one-length hair sculptures, perming and coloring techniques. Use for graduated forms and long hair techniques.

Graduated Form Pivot Point Hair

GRADUATED FORM
Shorter exterior lengths progress to longer interior lengths. Designed for men’s sculpture, perming and coloring techniques.

Increase Layered Form Pivot Point Hair

INCREASE-LAYERED FORM
Shorter interior lengths progress to longer exterior lengths. Ideal for longer layered sculptures, long hair designs, perming and coloring techniques.

Uniformly Layered Form Pivot Point Hair

UNIFORMLY LAYERED FORM
Equal lengths consistent throughout. Ideal for medium-to-short hair sculptures, thermal and wet designing, perming and coloring techniques.
