Razor cutting is a core competence for a hairdresser. This masterclass introduces all razor techniques and briefly covers when you would use them. These techniques are necessary to create a seamless blend for graduation whilst cutting the hair.
You will start by learning about the 7-steps to developing excellence in your occupation, as well as how the principles of Lean can be employed in the hospitality and Lifestyle sector.
Once you have completed these stages, watch a video which demonstrates a graduated bob on a mannequin head, using a razor only. The masterclass then guides you to perform the tasks shown in the video and offers a set of downloadable resources to assist you in your practice.
