In the eyes of our clients, we are not just hairstylists or colorists. We are designers with the power to transform by making the most of what nature gave them. Incorporating all of the tools at your disposal to effectively design a complete look takes not only expertise, but a keen eye and a clear understanding of how to balance shapes with color. Skillfully combining cutting and coloring to create beautiful transformations is the true art of our craft and the best business-building tool you can master. The Painted Cut is our proprietary cut/color technique, designed with this philosophy in mind. The hair is layered using a combination of razor and scissors, then strategically painted with highlights and lowlights to bring out the shape of the cut and give it depth and dimension.
In this class, students learned our approach to designing the right look for a client based on her facial features, head shape, lifestyle, and hair texture; razor cutting techniques and how to effectively combine the razor with scissors; as well as Eva’s proprietary Balayage hair painting techniques and formulation.
