Often times, a square head shape is the difference between creating a masculine or feminine silhouette in your shorter haircuts. In this video, David Boyd from the Sam Villa ArTeam shares a great technique for removing excess weight & bulk that exists at the round of the head. This texturizing technique is ideal for creating softness and directional texture while maintaining a masculine head shape.
An easy way to go in and remove weight and bulk in your shorter haircuts is by using your reversible blending shear. The steps are simple:
Important: The teeth of your blending shear should be pointing the direction that you want to influence the hair to go. In this example, David has the teeth pointing back to direct the hair to move away from the face.
This technique creates a similar texture as if you were using a razor over comb technique. The end result is soft directional texture with the right amount of weight removal to maintain a square shape in your haircut. Give this a try on your short hair guests; we promise that you'll love the results!
