At MODERN’s most recent Artist Session, the hands-on photoshoot workshop in New York City, artists Rose Fraser and Chaunsey Hildebrandt took up their tools and went sharp, shaped and sheared.

Although these looks are quite feminine, Fraser and Hildebrandt used traditional men's cutting techniques to achieve the finishes. Expertly executed scissor-over-comb and clipper techniques were used to define edges and create sharp lines, all very tight but still all lady.
