Extreme Layered Octopus Haircut Tutorial with Russell Mayes

This layered octopus haircut tutorial teaches a dynamic and versatile technique that adds depth, texture, and movement to any hair texture. Inspired by the fluidity and natural beauty of ocean waves, this cutting method involves strategically layering the hair to create soft, cascading tendrils reminiscent of an octopus’s tentacles. With its seamless blend of precision cutting and texturizing, the octopus layered haircut offers endless possibilities for customization.

This octopus style is different from our other octopus haircut in that it has much more extreme layers. This is one of those haircuts with volume at the crown which helps prevent the ‘flat head’ look. This look has a lot more texture, separation and movement. This tutorial is also done completely with scissors. The other octopus cut tutorial was done with a razor. Both videos feature the octopus haircut with bangs, but more like curtain bangs. You can see the other octopus haircut in this video.

This haircut octopus style is a favorite among clients seeking a modern and distinctive look.

Russell uses Jatai Kyoto Scissors by BMAC and Jatai Tokyo Thinning Scissors by BMAC to complete the look and Jatai Blade Glide Plus.
