How To: A Razor Cut Shullet

Enter the Shullet, a captivating fusion of the classic shag and the bold mullet – learn how to create it with Sami Skinner, Sam Villa Ambassador.

I have a lot of clients who have been wearing shags for a bit now and are ready to jump into something new, yet don’t want to cut over their ears for a mullet shape so, this razor cut shullet bridges that gap for them,” explains Sami Skinner

The shullet combines the silhouette of a shag with the textured interior layering of a mullet, framed with a crescent fringe. Learn how to cut the Razor Cut Shullet here:

Notes by Sami Skinner

  • Use a swivel designed razor with rubber handle such as the Sam Villa Signature Series Razor on wet hair for a clean cut.  
  • Break down the cut into three sections – front/bangs, top and perimeter.
  • Use a comb to find the natural fall of the hair to determine sectioning.
  • Deep zigzag sections on the side and back help create texture and balance.
  • Overdiretion will create the long to short layers and a crescent shape around the face frame.
  • Work back and forth from side to side to ensure balance and symmetry.  
  • Carve out side petals to help bangs kick out.
  • To Style the Shullet: Apply Redken Acidic Bonding Concentrate and use the palm of hands to push hair in place to encourage a wave pattern. Then,  diffuse with a Sam Villa Professional Light Ionic Blow Dryer to encourage waves.
