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!
