Thank you all who came to our monthly class at The Studio. I hope you learned something and got to use this approach on your guests.
Until next time. 🙌🏽
Scissor-over-comb technique for me is a method of haircutting. This approach can create more freedom to stylize, detail and finish suitability of the haircut. I’ve been a long time fan of my Hikari Japanese steel shears. There is no right or wrong with scissors. Just cut with a pair that is ergonomically comfortable, and of course durability is keen with our work.
The types of combs I shared in class were
1. Buey pro 500
2. Y. S. Park 339
3. Y.S. Park barber comb
My all time favorite for taper or to cut close to skin for fades.
I am not used to speaking in front of a group of people. But a couple of Sundays ago I volunteered to teach a scissor-over-comb class. Everyone enjoyed it, and it was fun!
Every month The Studio hold’s a free Sunday funday education. It’s such a great opportunity to learn a few tips and meet other stylists/colorists.
Everyone is welcome to attend and get geeky. Even if you don’t do hair. Its all about learning something and having fun with it.
The hair model was my client Erin. I choose this technique on her because the hair texture is super fine, and grows straight out and is bouncy. I describe her hair as fluffy. Almost like a Dandelion.
Plus I feel like I can customize the style more and have better control with shears.
She gets her haircut every 5 weeks.
When I first met Erin @erin.e.day541
She told me it had been a challenge getting a haircut that suited her without not feeling like a straight up masculine barber cut or an unflattering short cut.
She wanted to be seen as an androgynous/tomboy butch queer.
My method was to cut each horizontal
sub-sections with different size combs. I choose this technique because she wanted a tight fade with longer length on top with some movement. So she can wear more dapper or down and forward.
