Layers vs. Blunt
Layers: meaning not one length. Yes, you want them. If you have fine hair and want volume get layers. If you have dense hair and want to remove weight get layers. That pretty much sums us all up. Layers can be done in so many different ways and tailored to you. Blunt hair cuts are challenging for us both. I really like them in high fashion magazines and at hair shows. There is not much room for styling in a blunt cut. It can look blunt and be beautiful, that usually requires some layering. (Example: left)
Blunt cuts are limited to their shape because they don’t move. I once had a mentor tell me that no cut should truly be blunt…. except for Cleopatra’s wig and Spock’s hair, from Star Trek.
It’s a lot of information so feel free to ask questions. Stylists don’t expect you to know everything about hair. That’s our job. If all else fails we all speak a common language and that is the visual language. (Pictures, pictures, pictures) Ps. changing your haircut is good for you! Live long and prosper.

Communicating properly with clients is very important to me as a stylist and artist. There are times when it seems that technical terms often sound foreign to people outside of my industry and vice-versa. There are terms I hear regularly that I am often unfamiliar with or heard once or twice in beauty school. I believe that it is our duty to educate and update our clients with everything we do as stylists. Beauty schools, magazines, salons and beauty suppliers we are all obligated to keep you up to date. Share the wealth!
Feathering vs. Texturizing: When I hear the term “Feathering” I often think of the prime example Farrah Fawcett’s wings. Or, a haircut that is bulky except for one section choppy and flipped ,usually at the ends. A similar technique we use today is Texturizing . Creating texture in the hair is done in many ways on various types of cuts to create more movement and separation. It’s also used in hair cuts and break up hard or weighty lines. So unless you want look like Ferrah ,baby ask for texture. Ps. we love you Ferrah and that historical cut R.I.P.
