Question Fjord Manes

There is a Fjord mare at CARD where I volunteer. Misty I doubt I'd ever clip her mane, but I was still very interested in how it would be done. I love the look of their manes, I even saw one that looked like a castle wall.
Anyhow, anyone have any good ways of explaining it, or a video?

Here's what I have heard of through other people

Brush and comb through to remove all the tangles. Dampen the mane and comb the flaxen hair down and out of the way. Trim the black hair first, don't cut it too short so if you mess up it'll grow out faster! Trim the black into a neat curve to emphasise the crest.
The do one side of the flaxen hair, then the other. Follow the top line of the black hair. Remember that although you'll aim to get both flaxen sides even, you'll only really see the flaxen hair from one side or the other, so its not vital if they don't exactly match (unless you're showing!)
I'd use sharp hairdressing scissors and a wide toothed comb but other people prefer clippers.
Don't worry about getting it perfect first time, just keep practising.
clipped even or with 1/4 to 1/2 inch of black stripe standing above the white crest.

We had our Fjord's mane where its short enough where it just stands up and we have parts cut out so the dark brown sticks out.

I didnt know parts were cut out, I thought it was just cut lower to show off the middle.
