82 | BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD | NOVEMBER 2018 News HAIR: SAM VILLA, ARTEAM; PHOTO: KATIE PARKER; MAKEUP: NICOLE SCHIMEL; WARDROBE: BRITTANY HART Ready to Graduate? The graduation technique: an ingenious way to make a short cut more interesting without asking your client to undergo a drastic change. Andrew Carruthers, education director for Sam Villa, shares fi ve pointers to keep in mind before you can graduate in graduation. 1 Create cutting lines that curve with the natural shape of the client's head for a softer, more balanced effect versus straight, hard lines. 2 Use a higher elevation and fi nger angle/cutting line to develop a leaner graduation that works well for super-short haircuts. 3 Choose a lower elevation to maintain more weight. 4 Take more vertical sections for lean graduation, horizontal sections for low and heavy graduation, or diagonal sections when attempting to build weight in a certain direction. 5 Razors and graduation play well together because razors create a more lived-in edge and enable an easier curved cutting line. Furthermore, this on-trend technique isn't limited to short styles. "Graduation can be worked into longer cuts, too; the results are a bit more diffused," notes Carruthers. This graduated cut looks cool and contemporary. FEATHER Styling Razors are hairdressers' razor of choice. Being a Beauty Launchpad Readers Choice Award winner year after year, it's the gold standard for hair razors and continues to bring consistent quality and performance since the 1990s. Feather Styling Razors come in various colors and can hold one of three blades to customize your razor cuts: Feather Standard Blades, Feather R-Type Standard Blades and Feather Texturizing Blades. The cutting edge of the FEATHERĀ® blade is designed to give you the cutting control you need to be creative. The blade fi ts snug into the handle and does not chatter or move when cutting. The blade itself is sharp, but with the patented blade guard, it makes it safe for both you and your client...meaning you won't cut yourself with this blade! The blades are made to fi t the handles perfectly to deliver this solid tool. (888) 965-2824 Tag your best images with #beautylaunchpad to be featured on our social channels Best Work SHOW US YOUR
