Sam Villa demonstrates another great texturizing technique using the Sam Villa 360° Swivel Razor. This razor backcombing technique is ideal for when you want the hair to have a greater degree of separation.
Products used in this technique:
- Sam Villa 360° Swivel Razor with Straight-Edge Blade.
- Redken Shine Flash 02 - adds a buffer to the surface and allows for more slip when cutting with your razor
In this technique you'll concentrate on your entry and exit points, this will determine the shortest pieces all the way to the longest lengths of hair.
Utilizing the backcombing technique, you will slide down the hair shaft creating short-to-long texture; you'll then swivel your razor so it's pointing toward the head and push (or backcomb) the hair to keep what you don't want to remove.
Use the razor backcombing motion when you want to create visible texture with and dramatic separation in the hair. Check out the video above for the tutorial.
