The Sam Villa Artist Series 6” Slide Cutting Shear is designed to protect the integrity of hair when sliding blades down the hair strand.
“Techniques like slicing, channel cutting, pinch and talk (also known as pinch and slide) and even point cutting take on a softer and smoother touch, because the shear is designed to allow hair to slip as it's being cut, which creates a soft edge without compromising the integrity of the hair,” explains Andrew Carruthers, director of education for Sam Villa.
The key design element that makes this shear unique is the ergonomic handle with the signature Sam Villa forward set thumb position, allowing for a wide variety of positions without putting stress on the wrist.
How to Use
When working with the Slide Cutting shear, be sure to close the blade as you move through the hair. The faster you close, the more hair slips out of the blade... the slower you close, the more hair will be cut! Also, changing the angle of the shear in relationship to the hair will change the amount of weight removed. More parallel angles will result in a very light removal while a more diagonal approach takes away larger pieces. This allows for incredible versatility from one tool.
