These Haircutting Tips Will Make You Everyone’s Fave Stylist

Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s residential cutting experts Davide Spinelli and Lathaniel Chambers give us their top seven haircutting tips

Davide Spinelli and Lathaniel Chambers lead the Cutting Skills Workshop presented by the Fellowship for British Hairdressing. The workshop, hosted by Debbie G, teaches stylists how to create everyday styles such as a simple bob and a short undercut.

“We are all busy salon stylists and while it’s great to be creative, it’s important to learn everyday cutting skills you can use on the salon floor,” Debbie says.

Stylist Davide Spinelli gives live model a bob

Spinelli used scissors and a razor to give his live model’s shoulder-length bob a soft, natural finish. Chambers, on the other hand, used a clipper to create an undercut fit for clients who want a more adventurous look.

“After a year of not being able to get their hair done, clients are looking for flexibility with their hair,” Chambers says. “Something that is serious for work, fun at the weekend.”

Top 7 tips for the perfect trim

Tip one: Work on your classic techniques. Once you have these, you can combine techniques to create something new.

Tip two: Use a razor instead of scissors to save you time. It will give you a softer look while you are cutting and you don’t have to spend time texturising after you’ve finished the cut.

Tip three: When you’re working with a razor, the section has to be clean and sharp. 

Tip four: Always used a new blade after every haircut. 

Tip five: Never use a razor on frizzy hair, as it will make it frizzier.

Tip six: Combine scissor over comb and a clipper, if you want to cut tighter to the skin. 

Tip seven: Don’t be afraid of afro hair. Get an afro dolls head, make mistakes and play with shapes and texture.
