Cut and Color by Presley Poe (@presleypoe)
Head Colorist for Pravana’s Color Collective, Presley Poe (@presleypoe) is known for her stellar color finishes, signature close crop and flawless cat eye. She is also jam master with the shears and her cuts are a notch above, always. Check out this genius hack Poe employs for a sweet pixie cut.
“Need a shortcut to take out lots of bulk and create lengths from short-to-long in one go?! Here’s your answer!!" Poe shares. "This babe was getting a pixie with longer bits around the face so I set the shape before tailoring it.”
TIP: “Be careful as to what shear you attempt this with as most are not created to handle such dense subsections.”
Poe uses her Hattori Hanzo HH-P which she calls, “My go-to for deleting hair.” Want more Poe-try in Motion? After watching the hack video, scroll down for more examples of Presley’s GORGEOUS work:

Don’t be scared of a high definition texturizing shear! In this case my @hanzonation VT-2 65% weight removal multi-tooth shear giving us life with this beautiful feather like texture! A haircolor is only as good as the frame that holds it, in this case I wanted to match soft color to soft texture! *notice how I’m holding the hair between 3 fingers rather than two.... if you’ve taken my class can you can tell us why, or if you guess correctly it’s your chance to win a PRIZE! (Must live in the US) first one to get it right wins!

Finishing details on a precision cut... don’t get me wrong I believe whole heartedly in finishing and craftwork with scissors, but I also believe in the power of EFFICIENCY! In our daily struggle to balance time, I like the use of small edgers. In this case my #wall #peanut edger to quickly tight line my edges. Using this tool helps because it can cut through multiple layers of hair wo pushing it and creating more work. 💕 #presleypoe #pdx #pdxhairstylist #precision

Going through old photos and reminiscing on the times that I had more time to make art 💕. I feel so inspired lately and want to take things back to the days of figuring out what to do and having new discoveries along the way! My photography was not in point but this hair was magical in my opinion 💕 out of the rut and into the abyss I go! #neverstoplearning #hairtattoo #pdx #pdxstylist #presleypoe #pravana #undercut #pixiecut #frenchroll #galaxy
