Save time while straightening hair without jeopardizing the quality of your work. It’s all about being efficient!
Watch Andrew Carruthers, Director of Education for Sam Villa share the tips and tricks of straightening hair quicker, while getting better results!
The first way to save time when straightening is a technique we call “skip the clip”. It may seem simple but by eliminating the use of clips, we can save a substantial amount of time!
The positioning of the head is crucial when eliminating the use of clips! Be sure to let your clients know they’ll need to slightly tilt their head forward while you straighten their hair. This will allow the hair to naturally fall forward, and towards the face.
To begin the technique:
There are some cases where a clip is necessary when cutting hair. We understand that sometimes it is more beneficial to use clips versus not especially when working with thick hair.
That’s why we created Sam Villa Dry Sectioning Clips. Often times we use traditional clips that have divets which create dents in the hair. Our Dry Cutting Clips have a urethane band which helps to hold the hair flat keeping it smooth while simultaneously holding the section in place. The urethane band will avoid those unwanted creases that challenge us when cutting dry hair!
Next time you’re flat ironing your guests hair, set aside your clips and practice this technique in 4 easy steps: Diagonal forward section, mist with Redken Iron Shape 11, place in your comb, and glide your iron down to the ends using a slight bevel!
We hope these tips have helped you gain time behind the chair while stepping up your skills behind the chair! Efficiency does not have to be a compromise.
