Come on in! Just have a seat. I was just getting Kathleen sectioned out and I'm going to do that Ace of Spades cut for you. I start with just sectioning out the occipital down. I am going to be cleaning in the stomp of an ace and I am going to be using that technique that I was talking to M2 about. And I think her technique is quite similar; mine is vertical, hers is horizontal. Let's cut it stump right here and then the top part, the interior of the cut is going to be round layers, but I'm going to make the very, very top layer cut to about there.
So instead of being perfectly round, it's shaped more like a spade and then Christmas tree is out of the bar. Kathleen kind of developed this because she got drunk one night and she was running her hands through her hair - I really like the way, the texture was working with it, so we just razored it instead of cutting with the scissors and that's how it evolved.
Now she likes this part short, I like it long but-
Kathleen: I like it long too.
Male Speaker: It's her haircut today, so we are going to do it a little bit shorter. I start in the middle, keep you head down. I'm just going to pencil off a line, it doesn't have to be perfectly straight. About that much.
If you have got few strays I just put my razor right up against my fingers and just pull out. As long as you are moving both the things at the same time you won't cut yourself. If you are moving just one, it will screw you. Now I'm going to take out just the real thin section in the middle, horizontal, pull it out 90 degrees from the head, and I'm going to come down in about 45 degree angle with my razor, don't want to take off too much.
And come in, then push that back and take another layer out, push that back, and take the last layer out, just letting it fall off. See, well I haven't broken into a line, but this is going to make this thing like really standout. And make it so that you don't have to blow dry or using that kind of product because the cut itself, we will make it standout. Now as I come over to the sides, there is less hair here than there is down under here. So I'm going to start throwing these sections a little bit towards the center so it makes the outside hairs just a little bit longer.
He is where I started over directly. This is coming over towards the center. Alright, this side is the same -- and this side gets pulled towards the center also. Okay, now you can put your head up. The rest of this is done with the top part of the head parallel to the forceps, you know, really shapes up and I also start in the center, I'm going to be pivoting from the apex of her head, that's the very, very highest point of your head; now I'm going to be pivoting my sections around. When I get right here, and I'm probably going to hold that same amount that I held back down there.
Now I'm going to stand on that side and you guys can stay there. I am right-handed and I think you can see better from standing over here. Pick up where I dropped from here and start upward. At about 45 degree angle, I don't want to really chop into this too much.
As the hair is falling out, I know that's where I'm supposed to hit next. When I get up to the top, I'm going to hold the hair between my hand and the razor and just slide up, like this is not the only point right on this top.
That's where I'm dropping out right there and then I'm going to just tap everything above it. I can see my line right in through there, so that's where I am heading. When I get to the top, move to my hand, and I'll just slide up. See how that lifts up, that's going to be my shape and it comes in and then kicks out, yeah. And he stayed away from the collar room. I have all the tunes of collar number. Best part of our razor cut is to throw all the hair all over the place, make a nice mess.
