Simplified techniques that have the most impactful results are a hairstylist’s best friend... are we right?? We always want to be as efficient as possible when it comes to time, and that’s especially true for those of us that are cutting AND coloring. This week, we have the very talented Jacob Khan and Ben White with us and they’re going to show you their signature “dry cut concave layer” technique! This creates layers that go from long to short, giving the cut a classic yet modern feel that has a lot of movement and maintains the overall length. It sounds easy enough, but these guys are sharing all kinds of innovative cutting techniques that totally blew us away. You definitely don’t want to miss out! This universal method works beautifully on short and long hair lengths... you can do it on anyone! What we love most is that with their tips you’ll be able to cut first and then color perfectly for the shape of the new look. For you stylists out there that cut AND color... this one is for YOU! We can’t wait for you to see the final look!
