help on basic techniques project
Posted: Monday, January 03, 2005 6:26:50 AM

Hi,

Was wondering if any one could help with a project,I'm doing for college. I have to give short description of each of the following cuts and the cutting technique used to achieve the following styles.

one length

uniform layer

short graduation

long graduation with fringe.

As we have not reached the cutting stage it is for more of a search and find excercise but I've searched high and low for step by step guides with pic's and instructions but to no avail.Thanks again.

Check out the Matrix.com website for their CraftCutting pdf file. You can print it yourself and it will explain some of what you are looking for.

Are you in Cosmetology school? If so, why don't you have a book? I have my old books at home from school 3 years ago, and if it's really important, I can look up the definitions and get back to you. It will be a lot of typing, so before I do that, please explain why you don't have a textbook?

I'll try my best to define these in Toni & Guy teminology. Remember these are descriptions - not step by steps for cutting hair

One length: all the hair combed to "natural fall" (center parting, radial parting [ear to ear] - all the hair in the back partings are combed down as it would fall naturally) the hair is cut to one length (0 degree).

Uniform layers: We call them "round layers" All the hair is cut to the same length. 90 degrees from the head all over

Short Graduation: Basically, anything between 0 degrees (one length) and 90 degrees (round layers) is graduation. Hair cut from short to long - at a 45 degree angle - would be graduated.

As for long graduation with fringe: The same rules apply to long graduation and short graduation. However, I think they might mean what we call reverse graduation which means hair cut past 90 degrees. (from short top to long bottom) With a fringe might mean a disconnected fringe (aka bang) or connected.

hope this helps - good luck

Thanks for the definitions,hows about a step by step on actually cutting each of these from sitting client down etc.  No I'm in the UK doing hairdressing NVQ 2.  I do have a book but its not very explanatory and with most things I do I get a little panicky that I might miss something out.  Thanks once again for all your time and efforts.

nvq 2 hairdressing is the basic first course in hair dressing for a mature student, well 34 not that old. It takes a year about 3 and half days a week.  Not sure if its for me yet but I'm a mum and have no real qualifications and thought I wolud give this a go.
