What your client says they want and what they ACTUALLY want are often times two different things. An example, you ask? The shag! We’re seeing it more and more and it’s totally on trend, but the chances of your client wanting an ultra-layered, 70s rocker moment are a little less likely. What they probably want is a long, layered cut with a few disconnected pieces that edges up their look while keeping it modern, chic, and versatile. Our very own Riawna Capri is here with us this week to show you how to create that faux shag realness and we are so excited! Ri actually did this exact cut on Arielle Vandenberg and got a ton of amazing feedback about it, so she just had to do it for YOU! She’s going to take you through it from start to finish and share all her unique cutting techniques that make this look so successful. You’re going to love’s the perfect blend of fierceness and chicness. The faux shag is here to stay!

As a super down-to-earth, yet honest person, Riawna’s special touch has clients coming from around the world to have her help create their “best you.” Riawna is always joking around and laughing too loud, but she takes her craft very seriously. After graduating from Oxnard High School, her parents forced her to go to college, which lasted for two years, until she made it to Marinello’s School of Beauty, in Henderson, Nevada, circa 2002. After graduating at the top of her class, she went to work at “the best salon in LA,” which at that time, in her eyes, was Fred Segal Beauty. From there, she opened Nine Zero One with co-founder, Nikki Lee, and launched IN COMMON.
