hey guys welcome to today's
vlogso in today's
vlogi have something y'all really like which is a live model her name is mary she came in she wanted an
pixiecut which it was a big change for Mary so as you can see this was what she came with before and this is what she has now so I'm really excited to show you how we got there show you the journey we also used tons of different techniques in this video so I think even if you don't want to do this specific
haircutthere will be things you can take out of it we also use multiple tools we use Mizutani scissors we use the Donald Scott carving comb we use all kinds of different tricks to create this look so I hope you liked the video let me know in the comments below hit that subscribe button if you haven't already and here we go alright guys exciting video today check out the before so that a couple of things I want you to realize real quick is the disconnection the ions hanging there are very few so I think it has a lot to do with setting up your last cut wherever you got it so you want to make sure that every time you cut a
haircuthave a purpose and you are really following the shape of the head or you will end up with disconnections that make no sense what i put in the prep the hair that is invisible where the memory styler is like a setting gel medium this is a brand new product from paul mitchell and what i like best about it is that it glides on well, it has a nice medium hold and is great as a cutting lotion and is really great on fine hair creating a lot of shine, so breaking it into sections is pretty simple I go to the left hand side of her head and then follow it back to about the middle of the crown and do a diagonal back part.
It's just to create kind of a V shape and then under that point a little bit lower on the right side because I'm going to create more of a disconnected
asymmetricalfeel. on that side of the head we trim it nice and then as we go along this is where we're going to start the haircut. I'm working diagonally to the back because I want to work with the round part of the head now the The key thing I want you to see in this part of the haircut is that the angle of my finger comes out a little bit so you can see where I'm pointing it, it lengthens a little towards the inside of my finger. that's going to do is help work with the shape of the head so that Mary's head is a little bit flatter on the side so I wanted to create that shape to give it a squarer feel on the side instead of rounding it out later our haircut wouldn't really look good so I'm really focused on making sure I don't round her head too much in this short part of the haircut now I continue to take half inch parting all the way after rounding my head and then i just picked up some of that old hair as my guide but coming straight out ff of the head so straight from the head that it doesn't pack weight the only part that packs weight is the top around the parietal ridge area where your head It starts to round out that's where we're going to build up a bit of a line of weight to balance out the shape of his head so you can see I'm working palm to palm keeping everything clean. neat and nice than the memory shape or the invisible where the memory shape is really what helps hold the hair while I'm parting it is another benefit of using a product in the hair also the reason I like it using a product in the hair before cutting is because i am working that product into every part of her hair as i go along and then when i go to blow dry at the end every little bit of her hair has saturated product so again continue to follow the head shape parting half an inch things i like to think about when i'm at this point in the haircut is just elevation the elevation gets more difficult as you work on the head shape because look my elbow is starting to rise in the air and as my elbow goes up in the air the challenges will naturally want to drop the elbow so naturally you would do a heavier form without even doing it on purpose. just make sure you keep that elevation high when you're trying to take weight off the head shape so you can see straight from the head still working diagonally back continuing down to the lower nape area the other thing I want you to Head up is that I keep it fringed whenever I look at the bottom around the nape area because I really like that more lived-in look with these types of shapes, so I wanted to leave a bit of length to lift it up. up push that weight down to the hairline so i get those bangs or feeling pieces.
We're going to go in later with the razor and scissor and adjust it to see my elevation went up in that section and then when I moved into this section the elevation drops by a l I follow the shape of the head a little bit and keep laying that line of weight on top but making sure I don't drop my elevation too low and pack on too much weight because I want the weight line to sit just below the parietal ridge which you guys will notice in a bit so now what I want to do is I'm noticing how round the back of Mary's head marries, so I want to build a shape towards the crown area and then tuck it right into the occiput bone down. the nape gives it a more natural look, so the best thing about the haircut is that you can push the weight along the shape of the head to give it the look that we are always doing different things within fashion and style to create certain looks and to show different features this is how we can build features into the head shape so now my top direction will come right over that now I'm working with a stationary guide keeping my finger angle the same so that I'm building weight t but I'm also pushing more weight behind my right ear and what that will do for me is start to create that asymmetrical feel in the haircut so you can see that I'm combing everything towards that stationary guide and cutting it there .
I've talked about this in a lot of videos in the past a lot of times I'm pushing weight to cut later so we're going to go over that with a razor and fine tune it and we're going to do sliding cut techniques on it too so we're pushing a lot of weight there , but we're just doing a fundamental haircut right now to create push weight and then we'll get creative with it in the dry cut, so now it's all coming back. to a stationary guide as well, so I'm working diagonally forward now and driving everything backwards creating this kind of line feel on the right hand side.
Mary was very particular on the query that she wanted to leave as much length as possible on the right hand side but as hairdressers we have to really decide if we're going to leave that length how do we make it look good so what I did was oversteer everything back create a line then go over and back over that section and lift it up nice and high creating concave layers to may the sides be more layered and not too heavy and it will still have that textured feel now i'm going to work horizontally on top or you could call it vertical i still don't know exactly everyone says it differently so just straight on the top about the direction of everything back to a stationary guide so that the guide goes right back to the middle of the crown and what that will do is push the extra length in the front but it gives me that kind of connection that I need between the short part of her haircut and the long part, so we are creating a lot of short layers on top right now, but they will be done a lot longer as we go into the head shape so you'll see I'm just cutting straight through what it's doing is collapsing the top and increasing the weight to the front so my goal isn't round this shape at all because I still want to have those lines of weight there so everything is straight my fingers are flat with the top of my head so now you can see as I brush it you can see it fall forward but we've created a lot of layers, tons of movement that you'll see once we get it on the dry side, so now I have the Donald Scott carving comb.
This is another really cool tool available in free classroom education. I'm using the 50% carved side to work the nape. What it does is remove 50% of the hair and leave the other 50% on the head for texture it's a good way to collapse the shape a bit if you want and this helps me tuck her hair down at the nape of the neck, so i leave that bulge on top and tuck it down and also create that kind of fun hairline where it starts a little bit shorter in the middle and gets a little bit longer towards the outside now i'm using my brush ego palette this is actually the ergo diamondhead paddle brush so it's a miniature sized paddle brush that i really love for short hair if you want to see more details go to salon free education com for that, but I'm just working my way through the head shape, flipping the hair up creating a bit of volume and then going over with my Paul Mitchell neuro iron to smooth it out, so I'm smoothing everything out diagonally.
What I want to do is work with the shape of the head so I'm not trying to fight anything and I'm not creating any parts on top of the head that are really key when you're going to go in and dry cut for make sure you're not blow drying a hard part of the hair so now this is the Mizutani puffin scissor it's a dry cutting scissor I'm going through the back of the head and this is right where I pushed all that weight so what i like to do is go through and do a little bit of slide cutting with the puffin the reason its a dry cutting shear you can see how fat the blades are they have a ton of power to cut dry hair, also the Mizutani type box scissors I was using for the precision cut at the beginning.
I love that before my precision cuts but I don't want to use it on dry hair, not because it won't cut it, but because it will dull the hair. scissor a so use a dry cutting scissor to go in and really do that power cutting job with dry hair the blade is creative for that so it doesn't mess up your precision scissor so same here after I did a little spiky cut, I did a little slider cut just to add a little more to that fringe area around the hairline. the edges just to clean it up but still keep it alive which is what I really like and now I'm going to do the same thing with the puffin right here to tie in the front in the back now the last technique that I'm going to do you guys have seen this before quite a bit is the tease cut technique if this is your first time watching one of these videos i have tons of videos on this slide cut technique or the tease cut technique but what i'm doing is just twisting the hair back me and then I do a half open half closed teasing move as I cut the hair so I'm half closing it to take the weight off the hair and create a nice line that becomes a really cool frame almost like face frame or side bang like so last thing I'm going to do a little more point cutting so I take those same splits at the top of the head and just do a deep point cut to take weight off and size. ok to create some texture you can see how bold those lines are on top so I just want to cut them to soften them up a bit and the last thing I'm going to use is Paul Mitchell's spray wax.
It has a flexible texture. I love this product. It is one of my favorites. stranded on an island this would be the product i would go for gives a ton of texture it has a nice grip it is very smooth when you use a flat iron with it so i love it and you can see all the bold texture that came out of this cut how it communicates with the nape of the neck you can see the asymmetrical feel along the back pushing to the right side and then the nice soft feel of those round layers we created in the front and you can see how she packs that weight up keeping her head from looking super round wearing that shape to square it off so i hope you liked the video let me know in the comments below ok guys as always i hope you liked the video if you liked this video be sure to hit the like button like below, also subscribe to the channel by pressing the subscribe button.
