Hey guys, how are you doing? It’s Brad Graham from BradGrahamTV.com and today, we’ve got some sent e-mails. I love the e-mails right away. They keep on coming, I’ll get on to as many as I can and answer as best as I can.
First one here is from a Dianne from Minneapolis. Hey Dianne, how are you doing? I live in Minneapolis by the way. It says here, “I still love a curly hair you know I still love the curly hair and styles are currently coming back in style so I have curled my hair.”
Well, you know Dianne, I got to tell you we have seen a lot of a wavy hair, they want to call it so much curly hair but I’m seeing a lot of wavy hair come back and what it is as the result of the over bearing flat iron nation that we have been dealing with for the past 10 years. Flat irons are great, they are wonderful tool but if you kind of overuse so we have seen everybody with a sheet of curtains on their head. But some of the newer flat irons, so I'm going to show you one. We’ve got right here—great flat iron. A lot of the flat irons now and here it is have the ability to not only to flatten and straighten hair, but we had an episode a little while back that we actually curled a hair with the flat iron , with the mini flat irons but they have these little ridges on the outside. And it allows you not only to straighten your hair. We don’t know how to do that, it’s just like our ending close right. But by turning it and pulling it down, you will put it a nice wave in your hair. So, I'd rather see and get a good flat iron and have the duality, straightening your hair with it and curling your hair with it I suppose to curling your hair.
Curling’s, you know, I did that—of my mom and that’s wonderful. The promise is going to buzz you in and you don’t want to have that dead cat syndrome on your head so there’s another one good one for you. So anyways, thanks for the question.
The next one we got here and it says this is from a hair dresser Steven. Hi Steven, how are you doing? “How do I know if my scissors need sharpening in the shop and if when they are sharp if, I had them sharpened and it’s a good job or this is a good quality?” Well, it’s difficult. So many times you would be in a shop, they kind of come by, what your scissor sharp, and it’s 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 and if I got it dull, I should sharpen it. When is a good time to sharpen? I do once a month, every six months, every six years, every time I have a birthday with a full moon. It doesn’t really matter. Here’s a good way to talk. Great thing here, this is toilet paper and you know a very fine toilet paper. If you have a good pair of scissors and they are sharp and I’m going to show you if you can zoom in here, you know, I want to show you something.
When you shot your scissors down on the toilet paper, if they are dull, they’ll actually push it. You’ll see it move like this. You see the toilet paper move but if they are sharp, just go right through, look at this. The toilet paper is—and I'm just going right through it. And you see how that—that and they’re nice even smooth cuts. If your scissors are dull, then it just so happens I do have a dull pair here. See how it does as all we go through. I really got to push it. It’s not cutting all the way through. Can you see that? I'm trying to go here for you. That’s a dull pair of scissors. So, what is happening is 99% of the time, we are cutting with the final one third of our scissor. The sharp side is located in here where you can get that up in the girl’s head, hold on that thing. But that final 50% if you will is what takes it and as we’re seeing what I shot, these scissors are on a toilet paper, that final cut was barely cutting there. So that’s how, that’s a good way. If you can wait for that, you’ll do it. The toilet paper has a lot of effect and we definitely need it.
So guys, thanks for the questions, I love it. We are going to keep you always as a new episodes coming out. We are going to test out some of the new products—sending us a staff now. We got eraser color, we’re going to try erase it, that’s supposed to you know not cut your ear off which is always exciting and we don’t lose digits everytime we’re doing these haircuts. We have got some new products coming out and you guys can try it for your hair shop, from a hair dresser or where they are selling it until the ends here are colored that’s going to be rather silly and exciting at the same time. Brad Graham from BradGrahamTV.com. I'll talk to you next time.
