That's what I was going for...if she doesn't want a straight across mane that looks like it was just cut with scissors you cut vertically and it gives the hairs a more "rough" edge to them and not completely straight. What is also nice about that is it then doesn't have to be perfect. If you only cut straight across and a few hairs here and there aren't exactly right it will look bad, whereas with the up cutting version the hair lengths vary a little bit all over but it still looks really nice.
