Before we talk about the hair razors you need to have, let's take a look at razor cuts, and why you should be offering them to your clients!
A haircut done with a razor is a must for texture. It's a great way to add a tone of texture and movement to any haircut. You can do a whole haircut with a razor to achieve a very messy, shaggy look or you can use your hairdressing razor to add texture to any regular cut. It's also a great tool to use to create soft face framing layers or carefully remove bulk and straight lines from a blunt hair cut.
To use a hairdressing razor to cut hair you can use similar sectioning to that of a regular scissor cut. Using your hair razor in downward motions, while being sure to move your hand and wrist in long cutting motions will help remove length while also creating that razored texture we all know and love. To get the perfect look the best hair for this cut is thick hair.
If you're wanting to use a hair razor to create texture at the end of a haircut, there are many different texture techniques you can use.
Taking large sections and just razor cut the thick pieces at the end, or even just hitting the ends of the hair with the razor, will help you to create a shattered look. These types of texturising techniques can even be done on thin hair, if you're careful of course!
A hair razor can be dangerous when in the wrong hands. If not used correctly it can leave split ends and a not so great haircut. It's recommended to use a hairdressing razor on wet or damp hair. And of course, to make sure you are using your hairdressing razors on the right hair type and texture ! It is best to avoid dry, frizzy hair when using a razor.
The best and most popular hair razor is the feather razor. A feather razor is a razor with a straight handle attached to a blade. These blades have a guard attached to them with ridges, or teeth, similar to thinning scissors. These textured razor blades not only help protect your hands when cutting but also help to create more texture when cutting.
