Read on to learn how to master this popular look and we’ll give you tips on how to work the base of the cut as well as the texture and graduation. Let’s get started!
Work on the base of the cut and its texture
Once you’ve discussed the details with your client, it’s time to start cutting, so the first step is to create the base of the cut, which involves using scissors to create the desired shape on the sides and back of the head. When cutting, make sure all the lines are straight and even on each side, this will ensure that both sides match when you are finished. When you’re done, step back and check that everything looks symmetrical from all angles before continuing.
Now, it’s time to work on the texture of the hair to achieve the perfect result we aim for. You can use clippers or scissors, or even both, to add texture to the top of the head to give the hair volume and movement, as well as definition to flatter the shape of your client’s face. Be careful not to overdo it when adding texture – it’s important that it’s subtle enough to look natural, but still manages to add dimension.
Next, create the graduated cut to achieve the curtain style fringe, which will be the final and most important detail of this look. Start by cutting the longest section of the fringe with V-shaped scissors to create an inverted triangle on one side of the face. To achieve an even cut, make sure all graduated layers are at least two centimetres shorter than each other as you work from the bottom up. This will give you more control over how much volume and movement you want in each layer without weighing down or flattening any part of the hairstyle.
So, now that you know all the details of this cut and can learn how to do it step by step, we share with you this tutorial where creating a modern graduated look with curtain fringes for men has never been so easy.
