Razor Fundamentals



"I love the razor and I use it a lot, as do my team here at ARROJO. It’s an excellent way to create modern, low-maintenance hairstyles. It’s great for enabling swing and movement, creates a contemporary jagged line, helps you redefine texture, is perfect for short and messy and shaggy styles, and makes beautiful soft-shaped layers. Yet you can only do these things if you know the fundamentals of successful razor-cutting. Razor Fundamentals shows you how to master the straight edge blade and is perfect for inexperienced razor-cutters or any stylist who wants to ground their own razor-cutting in strong technique. Over the two days you’ll learn to razor-cut a one-length line, shape a graduated razor-cut, and layer effectively with your razor. Each day begins with a demo before you practice these techniques in hands-on, mannequin workshops. Razor Fundamentals improves technique and precision, and gives you a platform to take your creative edge to the next level." - Nick Arrojo
