About My Work:
I created this medium length, long layered supermodel-inspired cut using a Feather Styling Razor and R-Type Blades. I prefer an R-Type Blade because it has the least amount of guard so cuts more like an unguarded Feather Plier Razor. After sectioning the hair, I worked side to side in 1” beachball sections, pulling each section forward and gradually over directing each new section while referencing my original one. For a modern twist on this classic shape, I used an open stroke for a more diffused weight line and perimeter to connect the front to the back. For the front of the cut, I visualized an A-frame from the bridge of the nose down to the chin as my guide. I took a section from her natural side part and over directed slightly while also twisting the hair to prevent a shelf. To connect all the sections I pulled a corner from each section that lives on the round of the head and pulled each 1” section straight up from the head-vertically at about a 145-degree angle and used back cutting to cut while elevating the hair. When back cutting always elevate your elbow to ensure a soft cut into the hair. For additional airiness to the overall silhouette, I added crown layers and kept an even weight distribution in the ends which is crucial for this look. Using a large round brush to dry, I set using Velcro rollers along the mohawk and finished with texturizing spray to create sexy volume.
