Tilting fringe: more curious cutting cues from Sam Villa

Thursday, 27 September 2012 14:13

With the latest street and runway trends leaning towards asymmetric looks,  Sam Villa, Founding Partner of the Sam Villa® brand and Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue says free-hand tilted fringe is the ideal accessory to complement the this new kinky kouture.

“Fringe is heavier now, with unexpected accents like chewed edges and tilted lines that are point cut free-hand to create rawness with movement.  I like using my 7” shear because the longer blade gives me more precision and control, allowing me to cut angled in to get all the underneath hair out,” says Villa.  When creating chewed edges, Villa explains that it’s important to only point cut the ends, don’t go in too deep, stay shallow for the chewed edge effect.  

“Carved tilted fringe is a visual exercise, so take steps back on a regular basis to access the situation.  This fringe style has to be unique to the individual, customized to awakens the shape of their cut and compliment their features. The end result should be abstract and soft at the same time,” says Villa.
