In this Technical Deep Dive video, Russell demonstrates the difference between a short, tight razor stroke vs a long, broad razor stroke when cutting hair with a razor. Russell use the Feather Plier Razor to create a 70’s inspired haircut reminiscent of Farrah. While doing so, you can see the differences in the same haircut on the same hair. This video will allow you to grasp each technique’s unique impact when choosing one over the other and the visual differences. Short Razor Stroke Technique: Precision short razor strokes for a solid, yet soft shape that will build thickness and clean lines. Long Razor Stroke Technique: Soft, textured, and seamless lines perfect for a natural, lived-in shape. Which one do you prefer? Leave a comment and let us know!
