Although there’s a language barrier between us and Kazuma Kurate, a Tokyo, Japan-based hair designer, the talent and artistry of this professional’s cutting and color work deserves to be celebrated.
Throughout the artist’s online portfolio and Instagram platform, @kazuma_genuine, it’s clear the Sassoon-trained artist places value on the customization of each finish based on his client’s individual features.
Below is how to translate the cutting charts:
Black line = major section
Green line = cutting section
Red line = over-direction/elevation
Blue line = cutting line
Even if you don't translate the text, you'll be able to walk away with a fresh perspective on customization and clean lines.
