JULY 2016 | | 111 f Hıgh Maint Maintaining shears is critical to ensuring their longevity. Celebrity stylist Martino Cartier reveals three practices for keeping scissors at peak performance. "Treat shears like you'd treat your car," explains Cartier. "Keep them clean and shiny, and they'll last you a long time." • Oil shears at least once per day. • Always look for hairs in the screw, and remove them immediately. • When shears aren't in use, keep them in a case—if unprotected during a drop, the edges can be ruined. 1 Kit houses the Legend clipper, with its unique deep-tooth blade and extended lever that allows for greater cutting range for precision fading, and Hero trimmer, which is equipped with a t-blade for precision lining, edging and design.

It is very important that we maintain the integrity of our salon guests' hair, making sure it's in good condition prior to cutting. First, apply a leave-in conditioning treatment throughout tresses. Then, reach for a detangling comb or paddle brush. Separate the hair into sections that are not too large to manage, brushing the ends while holding the remaining hair between where you are working and the head. Grip the hair tightly as you brush vertically—this allows for greater detangling benefi ts. Once the hair is mostly untangled, switch to using the brush horizontally to remove any additional knots. Move up the strands while maintaining a tight grip on the hair. Repeat these steps until you reach the top of the head. Remember: It's important to keep a tight grip on the hair so that the guest is comfortable during the process! 1 Haircutting and shaving tonic helps shears and razors glide smoothly through locks, equalizing porosity and moisture levels.
