Is the Curve Cut the Next Big Thing?

The curve cut is gaining popularity in hair fashion because it offers a unique and modern twist on traditional haircuts. Learn about it!

The curve cut (Aka C-cut) is for those guests that have either tried the wolf cut and shags and want something new…or are too timid to embrace a shorter length with a multitude of layers but still want fun texture and movement,” says Joe Chesbro, Sam Villa Ambassador and Owner of Platinum Salon and Suites @joe_chesbro

Chesbro says the curve cut is the next big look because it has the cool-girl elements of a hybrid cut without sacrificing length. It’s mid-length with face-framing layers that are slightly disconnected, making it a good shape for finer-haired guests or those who want to maintain length enhanced by the texture and movement of layers.  

Chesbro establishes disconnected layers with one easy sectioning pattern, a stationary guide and a fail-safe technique for creating a flattering bottleneck fringe. Learn the technique here.

Curve Cut Highlights

  • Take hair from the recession line and make a curved section that stops at a point in center back when joined with a mirror section on other side.
  • Use dry sectioning clips to hold the underneath hair down and away to keep it separated from the top section.
  • Use a Sam Villa Signature Series Long Cutting Comb to find the high point of the head and section top area into 4 quadrants using the parting pick for precision.
  • Establish a guide in center front with a bit of hair from the left and the right sides.
  • Comb hair forward to the center part, pick up guide, comb horizontally and cut with Sam Villa Artist Series 6.25” Shears.
  • Continue to guide hair into the center and cut, working quadrant by quadrant.
  • Release bottom section, comb together and detail.
