Texture is everywhere
Texturizing the HairIn hairdressing, the term “texture” is used quite frequently. It can refer to the size of the diameter of the hair shaft (fine, normal and coarse hair texture). It can be used in styling in terms of adding a product to make the hair feel thicker or stiffer (texturing gel or paste added to give firmness and definition to a style). It is used in chemical services that alter the wave pattern of the hair (which are called ‘Chemical Texture Services”). And finally, we use it in cutting the hair to refer to techniques we use to remove bulk from a style or from the hair in general.
It is this latter use of “Texture” that we are most concerned with here. There are many different methods of “texturizing” the hair and each has a purpose and a situation for which they are more suited. The methods of texturizing the hair can be grouped into different categories. We’ll take a look at these groups of techniques and see how they differ and where they are most useful.
Internal Cutting typically involves shortening small segments of hair at some point along the length of the hair shaft. This can be done with varying techniques. One of the most common is the “Chipping Method” where the shears are used freehand to snip lengths of hair internally and remove bulk in a targeted, but random fashion.
About French cutting: The French haircutting Technique emphasize a woman's face. Like a work of art, her facial features are the focal point and her haircut serves as their frame. Standing the client up to cut the outline ensures an even cut and proportioned silhouette. Building the haircut from the top down results in soft, moving layers. By using a nozzle on the blow dryer, the French finishing technique leaves the hair shinier and with greater movement.
