Best Method For Cutting Layers Into Dry Hair

Sam Villa

Author Sam Villa | Founding Partner of Sam Villa

Sam demonstrates two straightforward techniques for applying layers to dry hair in this ‘to the point’ clip.

#1 – For hair that is DRY to the touch and feel – the kind of hair that shows every line when you finish your blow dry:

  • Use zigzag partings in your sectioning
  • This allows the hair to fall with softer edges

#2 – For hair that is DRY, not wet:

  • Use zigzag partings in your sectioning
  • Use a longer blade – Sam’s Dry Cutting Shear works like a charm
  • ‘Fan’ the ends of your sections and point cut into them deeply for the ultimate softness on the ends

For those who have not witnessed ‘fanning’, Sam guides us through this technique - you will end up performing this each and every cut – promise! You’ll get it... all you have to do is ‘Just Cut The Darn Thing!’
