Sam Villa shares his technique for getting this choppy redhead look:
• Begin in the nape area with a large triangle section in the center, elevaten up vertically and cut horizontally with Sam Villa Signature Series 7” Dry Cutting Shears.
• Isolate an oval umbrella section in the crown area.
•Isolate a triangle section in the fringe area, high point of the head to the corner of the eyes.
•Connect two areas with a horseshoe section.
•Isolate the left and right front side areas.
•Elevate back center area vertically and cut horizontally.
•Over direct the left and right side areas to the back area and connect into the horizontal line of the back area.
•Elevate the oval umbrella section diagonal with entire section pinched to center and point cut for a soft edge diagonally.
•Weave and cut with blending shear throughout haircut to achieve desired texture.
Apply Redken Wax Blast 10 and blast dry for a choppy, satin/matte finish with body and dimension.
