Advanced Razored Shag | hair by sarah beck

  • Hairpins Salon 1800 Central Street Kansas City, MO, 64108 United States (map)


Intro to Razor class or previous experience with the Plier straight razor required to register for this advanced class.

What you'll learn:

In this advanced class we will learn how to create the effortless shag and why the razor is the perfect cutting tool for this cut.  This haircut has been around a long time and making a much deserved comeback.  We will cover how to make a shag feel modern, up-to-date and edgy.  Two different cuts covered in this class, one a short length shag and the second a long length shag.

We will discuss curtain bangs vs full fringe.  How to blend short layers into length.  Creating longer layers in a shag for the noncommittal  client, or on the converse side, creating short layers with a lot of texture for the more adventurous shag.  How to create space and texture in this airy cut.  

In the hands-on portion I recommend a live model, you should have your model arrive at 1:30.  It can be any length of hair, they just need to be open to a shag.  

10:00-11:00: Theory
11:00-1:00: Demo
1:00-1:30:  Snack and Break
1:30-3:00:  Hands-on
