Razor A-Line Includes:
Many hairdressers use a razor to texturize and remove weight, but few have the control and confidence to use the blade to craft defined lines and angles. But by using a razor instead of a scissor to cut an A-line, lines and outlines become softer and more flexible, which allows for more versatility in styling—not to mention a longer-lasting cut.
In this course, Gerard Scarpaci will help you master short/closed strokes with the edge of the blade, allowing you to become more proficient and technical in your razor cutting.
You Will Learn:
- The Razor A-Line, a salon staple and the foundation of many advanced styles
- How to confidently use the blade to create defined lines and angles
- How to use minimum elevation, subtle over-direction and high tension when creating lines
- Where and how to remove bars of weight by slicing with the tip of the blade
- How different rotations of the blade create different effects
- When and why to use closed vs. open strokes
