Amy E: Hello! And welcome to the Cutting Edge Hair Show on scissorboy.com, I am Amy E, this is Madrid.
Madrid: How are you?
Amy E: Great! And we are here at his salon in Oakland, California it's called the Blue Shampoo Salon and --
Amy E: So what services do you offer here?
Madrid: Other than hair we do manicure and pedicure, and facials, massage, waxing, makeup, oh man, it's endless.
Amy E: Is it family-owned?
Madrid: Oh! This is my partner as a matter of fact.
Amy E: Oh! Really, what's your name?
Madrid: Yeah, this is Jackie.
Jackie: My name is Jackie.
Madrid: Yeah, exactly, so it's family-owned, yes.
Amy E: Right, and so what we are doing in the Jackie's hair today?
Madrid: Well, we are going to talk about her color technique that we did and her molding technique. We'll talk about it, and we are going to get into some cutting and styling. Her hair is already being colored. You can see the nice color in hair, it's a technique that we call Sidekicks, bam! We do videos on all of our more popular stuff. This technique is what we -- relax the hairs, relax, and we bleach the hair little bit to come up with a nice color. Now the color you see here in the side is actually toned down a little bit more. I changed the color just more and to get more gold, more kind of a copper-gold tone to it.
We come in and we actually do a rolling technique inside this section what we roll in and out, in and out, in and out, in and out, in and out. And that gives you more a zigzag kind of finish. And when you put your color or your bleach on there; it doesn't bleach to the scalp. A lot of people have problems with that because when they put to color or they bleach on there, they have this line here, this big splat of bleach. So if you practice this technique here, and again you come in and you come round, round, round, round, round, round, round, round, round. So watch when you bring this hair up. You see it looks like zigzag sections, and when you place your foil it places right at that line. So try that I'll give you that for free.
So we are going to go through some cutting technique, we are going to use a basic clipper, and we are just going to put it on her head like this and go eh! No, that's a joke.
Amy E: Are you joking? Okay.
Madrid: No, I was playing. Okay, we are going to start our cut on the short side, because this is going to be asymmetrical, it's going to be longer on the opposite side. So this comb is designed like this, it's not broken, I'd actually take this teeth out, because it helps me to part through the hair. Depending on the density of a person's hair, I'd have to part through the hair and it helps me to just part through that hair a lot better.
This side will give you a closer cut. We want to use a larger side, and we want to come in at an angle here, and we are going to turn the comb for about 45 degrees from the scalp, and we are going to just start to remove that hair. We just come in and keep our angle until we come up to meet the guideline up here at the top.
And now you can see that color coming through there, so you have a peekable color. And we do a lot of stuff in the back of the hair too, because most people when they view you, they see front the back, and in this case, it's very soft, very smooth even if we left a hair just in this molded style right now, and just lightly flat iron it, she is good to go. I mean it's the beautiful hairstyle already.
So now we have this line established, and we want to keep the length over here. So we are going to start right here on the left crown, and we are going to pull the hair out, and we are just going to make a nice that would be our guideline right there. So I am going to come across this form and I am going to keep the hair elevated slightly. So we can start maintaining weight on this side.
Amy E: So you cut a pair at the same time so do your scissors have to be extremely sharp?
Madrid: Very, very sharp, we do a lot of commercial time.
Amy E: Commercial time.
Madrid: I bought a Scissor Boy.
Amy E: Does he comes to you or --?
Madrid: Well, He comes to me, he comes to me, yeah. He picks them up and drops them off. So I've got to give him a big heads up for that. So now we are going to come down, our guideline here. Now we have a line here and when you come down and just slightly elevate this side section, we want to, we have our line in there, so that's nice and tight. So now we just want to start removing, and following everything back to this same guideline. So everything is going to be out, and up and back to maintain the length.
Now, remember we started to cut here, and we cut across there, so we actually have a line. In that line direction I am going to lift the back of the hair now, because we cut this part, so I can get rid of this stuff. So this is all weight to me. So how much the weight you want to remove is what you are going to do. Now you see I kind of walk it up. So I can get that corner all the way to the top, where I started that guideline. So this area where it's shorter I am going to make sure we still cut that hair. Now normally in a cut like this, if the hair doesn't come up to that point then you just leave it, because that's your weight-line. You don't want to get rid of weight-line, but again we need to cut all of the texture, cut out from the previous cut.
So all the hair has to be cut, everywhere on that hair, and you see this is where you are going forward now.
Amy E: Everything on head.
Madrid: Every hair has to be cut every hair. I want to take my clipper back and I am going to take that back way off, and we are just going to have nice move, flowing hair. We are going to still keep the weight; we are just going to take the very bottom off right there. So remember to angle that comb.
Amy E: He is an artist.
Madrid: Okay, I think that's good. I am going to take our iron, and we are going to just, so I want a whole lot of ironing on this stuff on the top. If I wanted to do a lot of flat ironing I would start from the bottom and work my way up. So it's just getting some nice soft texture, when they come around. Now I am going to start from the bottom on this side. So her hair is just beautiful, isn't it? Nice, isn't it flowing nicely?
Amy E: Really show out asymmetrical part of it.
Madrid: Ye! But we still just going to do some light ironing, we are not going to do anything heavy, nothing really dramatic, just to keep the flow of the hair going. Now we can really dress this hair out in some serious spikes even now. So you see here nice hair asymmetrical feel though, you see the line is smoother now. So as she grows into her bob, she won't have to worry about all of the split-ins and stuff from the texture cut.
Amy E: But after you flat iron you comb it out?
Madrid: Yeah, you can, we'll just take a low claw comb, or any type of comb that you like, and you can use a little polish on there, and you just kind of give it the flow that you want. You see a piece a hair that you don't want, get rid of it. Okay, now we are going to put a little shine on it, so she can look real nice and shiny and like Christmas.
Amy E: Like Christmas.
Madrid: Now all of these products were used are very light, they are not really heavy in composition, they work on all types of hair, so I can do your hair with the same product and it will not be heavy, or will not weigh your hair down. Jackie, that's cute!
Amy E: You are so cute.
Madrid: Oh! You are cute, oh! She is cute! Okay, alright voila!
Amy E: Voila!
Madrid: How is that?
Amy E: Very asymmetrical, very flowy, Scissor Boy like it, he says awesome! And let's all do a big snip-snip, Madrid, Snip! Snip!
