sharing cutting techniques
Discussing shape and form

 

The hair Cut, a hair creation, a style, a look, a fashion setting trend, a statement of individuality.

So if all of these are the case why as stylist do we in so many cases stick in so many cases to cutting the same look on everyone with any thought to some very basic points, or stick to the safe options on the styles we can create!

,

Will is suite this Client? Do they have the right hair type and features? Can they carry it off?

As stylists we owe it to both ourselves and our customers Clients to advise in an honest way on what might work be suitable look good, If we don’t do this are we really doing our job to it’s fullest are we being real professional are we being honest?

In  need of a make over
ready for a make over the next day she gave birth!

I ask these questions of my self constantly do you? we live in a society that for the most part is very accepting and tolerant of most things, People come in all shapes sizes have different needs desires aspirations all good but we as hair stylist have to take a lead and advise honestly what looks good what will not work.

 

When thinking about shape texture a look should we not consider the type of hair fine, thick, curly, growth patters at the nape of the neck to the hair line will that fringe {Bang }work for this client and her life style? If i cut this harsh blunt line at the nape will the hair lie the way i want it to? or will it always look lop sided? will that fringe work can i over layer ? yes you can should i add texture? questions to ask your self!

Should i cut a harsh line maybe it should be softer! why do you see so many men with lop sided cuts?

answer no account was taken for the way the hair grows! just because you combed it flat against his neck cut a perfect strait line does not mean it will lie this way!

At this juncture you may be laughing or thinking this is not me maybe not if so great you are one of the few,.

anything is possible
well quite the change

I think the fault with these issues lies in training or lack their of! to little time spent on the basic points key to understanding how to build and create a great cut!

 

Shape  for Example:

when will we stop re vamping the Bob with the chewed up wings the spaniel look! every look has it day but this one is done and oh so dusted, half the women wearing it should not be! In some cases the lines created are just wrong a heavy women with a thick set does not need a strong blunt line emphasising no neck round shoulders. Think about this really fine hair textured within an inch of its life for that shattered edgy look around the chin will it does it work?

The same can be said for cutting this shape into wavy curly hair the line will not hold in the nape area and the length left again around the chin line will curl up looking like to Brillo pads, yes it looks great when she leaves the salon you have hot ironed it with an inch of it’s life, guess what it’s raining it’s Grey it’s damp what it’s going to look like?

We need to consider these things as professional is a bad look a good representation of out skill and ability will it get us recommendation will it get us client retention?

It’s all about honest it’s all about that consultation it’s all about your standard your skill your passion your ability.

the rewards of a make over
closer look razor cut make over

So my question is Can you be honest does any of this apply to you!

 

We are none of us perfect but we have to question our choices, we have to raise the bar we have to have skill, passion and a real desire to make a difference!

DO YOU!

These shots are of a young Mum to be, she was heavily pregnant hated how she looked and felt. She came into the salon I was working at her words were. I have been to three salons today I want all my hair off  a total change. No one will do it they look at me like a crazy pregnant women.  I smiled said i will.

she said really. AS you can see the rest is history! next day she gave birth . She called me three days later to thank me.

To share, to seek new knowledge, skills and techniques to share experience is to grow!
