Video Alert! How To Dry Cut the Perimeter of a Textured Bob

There are so many rules and regulations about cutting hair dry, watch Jesse Linares, Sam Villa ArTeam Member, cut to the chase with a unique free-hand approach to dry cutting the perimeter of a textured bob with swivel shears that creates dramatic texture while removing length.

Why dry cut? It allows a stylist to create a design that takes into account the finished texture of a style, as well as any cowlicks or strange kinks in the hair. Most importantly, the shape is created in harmony with the finish/texture and it allows a stylist to be highly visual in the approach.  It is especially beneficial to those with curly and/or wavy hair.

Tips to Remember
▶ To better judge length and texture, it is crucial to finish hair the way the guest will wear it before cutting.
▶ Use a large Sam Villa Artist Series Handle Comb, and with the spine against the guest’s skin, use shears to gently tuck hair into the teeth to hold.  This larger comb gives a lot of space to hold hair without tension while cutting.
▶ Subdivide larger sections before tucking into the comb for control.
▶ Using Sam Villa Signature Series 7” Dry Cutting Swivel Shears, rotate grip down and work ergonomically while taking the ends off from the inside out to create a lot of interior texture - more so than if point cutting.
▶ It is important to move the fringe area out of its natural fall over to where the guest will actually wear it, and then cut it – this prevents the mistake of taking too much length off.

This dry cutting approach saves time at the chair, and it creates a nice crisp edge with lots of interior texture,” adds Linares.
