About My Work:

This textured pixie was inspired by the iconic Cat Woman movie from the early 2000s. I used my Feather Styling Razor to give the cut a shattered effect. I prefer the Feather Styling Razor for creating a razored/shattered look because it makes it easy to stay consistent in my technique. I can hold it several different ways depending on the section I take or the type of cut. I took vertical sections using a slide cutting technique to maintain length at the front to frame the face and add detail pieces. I took 1/2" sections and used a traveling guide around the sides and back, maintaining a little length around the nape and front hairline to give that shattered look. I used a point cutting technique with the razor going in vertically, pressing the guarded blade against my thumb and pulling up – a “grip and pull” method that is easy to do with the guarded blade. For the top, I took about 1" sections from the crown to the front of the hairline, elevating the hair at 90° and blending into the fringe using a round layer. To detail and finish the cut, I removed weight at the fringe with interior texturizing, holding very little tension in the hair as I slide cut then feathering length around the ear and blended into the front and back. I also used the razor to clean the neck without risking cutting the skin. After rough drying the hair, I used a fiber paste and pinched the hair to enhance this textured look. See this cut from start to finish in my Education CONNECT video.
