Using a feather razor is a great tool to help give some added life to a haircut. The razor can help create movement, softness and volume. I love to use my razor on women with fine hair to really pump up the look!
Here are some simple tips to help understand your razor:
- Changing the razor blade frequently ensures that the blade will create a smooth cut. Using a dull blade can pull on the hair leaving the hair more damaged and also cause discomfort for the customer.
- The angle of the blade to the hair is important to the cut. Laying the blade more flat against the hair and use light pressure will leave a more soft and textured edge. Placing the blade at closer to a 90 degree angle and using harder pressure will give a more blunt cut. The possibilities are endless!
- Feather blades often come with a guard. It is best to use them to prevent cutting you or your customer!
