Transcript of Haircutting Fundamentals + Blunt Haircut

What tools do we use to cut hair?? Who Invented Hair cutting???... The inventor of the "haircut" is still unknown.

In the stone age, people simply let their hair grow... it was there to keep them warm, not a sign of beauty as it is today.

Scissors were most likely invented around 1500 BC. by the Egyptians. Cross bladed scissors, as we know them today, were invented by the Romans in approximately 100 AD. Introduction to Haircutting Razor The Razor is another popular tool
used for hair cutting. This tool can be
used for short or long hair, but it
mostly used for texturizing.

however, Razor-cutting is not
only used for choppy haircuts:
a blunt but softer edge can be
achieved with a straight edge
razor, professional and trendy
blunt styles can be created with
the added softness and natural
texture of a razor-cut. Texturizing shears Texturizing shears are often
referred to as "thinning" shears because they are used mainly to remove bulk from the hair. Clippers are most
commonly used for
mens hair cutting,
creating short tapered
looks, fades, flat tops,
or shaving hair
right off the scalp :) Miss Mark Cutting shears are used to cut blunt or straight lines, as well as other texturizing techniques. Clippers Parts of a shear Holding your shears What do you want your stylist to know? Face shapes Hairlines and Growth Patterns Hairline

Practice opening and closing the shears. Concentrate on moving only your thumb.
Remove your thumb from the thumb grip, leaving your ring and
little fingers in the grip and finger rest.

Curl your fingers to “palm” the shears. This will keep them closed

free up your cutting hand. Transfer the comb by placing it between
the thumb and index finger of your holding hand.
