The Engineering of Haircutting

Recently, Bella stylist Boy Sharp attended a five day cutting class at the Vidal Sassoon Salon in San Francisco, and clocked more than 35 hours of hair cutting practice! For an entire week, Boy felt like he was back in school, attending class from 10am-5pm and taking in as much as he could about the art of hair cutting (he even squeezed in some time to get great insight from the Vidal Sassoon color expert). Each day, the students worked with three different face shapes and focused on one unique cutting technique for each. The student stylists were then given plenty of time to experiment and practice each technique. After the full week, Boy left California with 15 new techniques that can be used in an infinite amount of combinations to create the perfect look for each individual client.

What did Boy have to say about his experience?

“This class changed things up in a brilliant way. The techniques I learned are 100% usable for 100% of my clients. I have expanded my approach to giving the perfect cut that I can translate to anyone’s hair. These methods work for all regardless of shape, length or gender. Whether you want looks that are fashion forward and contemporary or conservative and classic, this is a fool proof method to achieve the perfect haircut.”

Boy will be sharing what he learned with all the Bella stylists so be sure to ask about these techniques the next time you stop by the salon!
