One-Length Long Haircut
Step by step guide on how to cut a one-length long haircut, from Steve Turner, myhairdressers.com. This is a classical one-length haircut, creating a blanket of glossy hair with a sharp defined edge.
Before: Faye before the haircut.
Step 1: Section across the head from the tip of each ear, dissecting the head at the crown. Then take a centre point at the crown and section to the top of each temple, creating three triangles in the front.
Step 2: Apply the appropriate protective clothing.
Step 3: Take a central section in the back, then diagonal sections either side just above the occipital bone to behind the ear. Note that this section's thickness will vary according to the density and the quality of the hair and hairline.
Step 4: Stand your client, allowing the hair to fall in its natural position. It is important to create weight in this first section as it is your outline and guide for the rest of the cut.
Step 5: In order to control your section, use the comb and scissors with loose tension. Note that Steve uses his scissors behind the section and his comb in front.
Step 6: Position the comb as a guideline and then cut from the centre working out.
Step 7: Assess and refine your shape.
Step 8: Repeat this process with the next section, working towards the crown area.
Step 9: Always be careful to maintain and cut to your guideline.
