So lets really breakdown the difference between a razor cut and a scissor cut. A razor cut at times gives a cool edge to haircuts and allows for a funky finish on hair dos. When it is most commonly executed, it can do great damage to the hair and cause breakage and obvious flaws in the hair. Often times a stylist will pull and shred the hair with the razor causing the ends to fray and often fall off. The same looks that are so often desired form a razor cut can be achieved by using scissors.
There are proper ways of cutting. If the stylist employs the scissors in the correct way they can effectively achieve any look you desire without causing all that damage to your hair. When thinning out your hair or making it piecy ask the stylist to use scissors instead of a razor. The is a technique by cutting downward with the scissors cutting and not dragging through your hair will thin and give texture to your hair.
The scissors should cut as if they were talking with smooth up and down motions that don’t snag or tear at your hair. This way the weight and bulk is removed without causing the tearing and shredding of your hair. Very often a stylist is quick to use a razor as a quick fix to blending layers but this can lead to fuzzy ends. Over a period of time it will appear dry and damaged. Point cutting into these layers to soften the look is just as effective in blending those layers into a smooth look.
Now lets put this aside, razors can be amazing tools when used right but so commonly they are being used to shred hair and leave it distressed. Being aware of these options in hair design is yet another way that you can take control of your hair experience. This will let you see the desired results that you want. Knowing this can be of great assistance when you are deciding on which haircut and style you are considering.
