Video Alert! How-To: Bringing Back the 40’s Swag – Santana’s Dizzy Style

Dizzy is a cut inspired by the origins of the “Bebop” and the cultural change brought from a new interpretation of jazz in the early 40’s. This style of cutting and styling by Raúl Santana takes its name from one of the parents of the musical genre, the legend Dizzy Gillespie.

To begin draw a visual line from the center front to the center of the occipital and use clippers to shave the side creating a strong diagonal gradient. The midsection and neck are worked in vertical sections with comb and scissors to create a soft texture with a feather blade.

The superior frontal section is divided into horizontal sections in a crescendo to create more thickness in the front. For the styling Santana used light hold gel and then blow-dried to organize the texture. To top it off he lightly sprayed American Crew Alternator to define the lines that give this look a bit of roughness for a heightened rebel style.
