Hair Cutting

There are many different hair cutting techniques, hair color, and hair styles that play a huge role in peoples lives.

What is really a hair cut? It is a geometry applied to hair. A very caring hairdresser will study geometry to understand all angles, lines and "circles/arches" he/she might have to use while haircutting, so he/she puts his/hers client's body and hairstyle into a harmony. However some hairdressers will just remove the length of hair without any order or geometric rules. They will just cut the hair because you, the client, told them so. It is very important, that you will try to educate yourself as well. You should understand what will happen to hair after it is cut in certain angles. See the basic geometry cutting techniques on the hair cutting techniques page. Borrow books from library or buy books on hair cutting.

Learn how to style your hair. Pay attention to what your stylist is doing and telling you. If you like the outcome, repeat it at home. However, some (especially older) people need other people's help.

Learning the hairdressers terminology would prevent many heartaches. Sometime clients ask the hairdresser for one thing and they really mean something else. Do not become one of those clients. Make sure that you learn the terminology and what the words really mean, so you do not run into problems based on misunderstandings. Otherwise you will be upset with the outcome of your style, even that your hairdresser is very capable and talented. Any responsible hairdresser will be also upset that his/hers client didn't explained himself/herself well and thus he/she didn't do what a client really had on mind.

Remember that sometimes hair grows at different speeds in different areas on the head and that may cause hair to get out of shape in about 4 weeks. Long hair should be cut after about 8-12 weeks. Short hair grows out of the shape in about 4-5 weeks.
