How to combine Razor and Precision cuttting


Hi there my Dear Friends at HairDesignerTV and Fellow Stylists.

As many of you know I was classically trained at the London College of Fashion, then my training at Vidal Sassoon’s and Trevor Sorbie.  All the great masters taught me the importance of strong technique and a beautiful well balanced shape.  While I still follow these principles,  learn and master the rules before you break the rules.  So to combine Scissor, razor and dress-work all on one head is stepping out of tradition.  But in this mix up you can create something new.


Below is a step by step from my FaceBook live, I hope you enjoy the video.
