Classic Cutting

Classic Cutting Hair Secrets 

Cutting hair

This course will help you gain confidence and give you tools to finely tune, tweak and refine, short, mid length and long haircuts. Many stylists are frightened with shorter hair, as it involves more precision. This course covers all the key points of working with short to mid length hair. 

  • How to hold the hair in your fingers.
  • The right tension required during cutting.
  • Negotiating growth patterns and different crowns.
  • Working with scissor over comb, opposed to clippers.
  • Working with the head shape to maximise the end result.
  • How to cut the right fringe (how to take the fringe section, where it starts and ends).

Classic cutting has a method to its approach and maybe has been missed or not been focused on enough in your training. This course gives you the techniques you need.
