Shaggy to Chic
Do you have a male client in desperate need of a good makeover? Here's the summer's hottest how-to from one of the beauty industry's hottest stars. Charlie Price, Rusk consultant and owner of Click Salon in Denver brought his right-hand woman, Lisa Vann, owner of Etherea Salon and Spa in Seattle, to help him create this ultra-cool look for men at an exclusive MODERN SALON shoot in New York City. Check out the August issue of MODERN for the color steps for this cut!
Before: Model Jeffrey sports a grown-out, shaggy cut and scruffy beard.
After: Whether he's going for a job interview or a night on the town, Jeffrey has a style that will make everyone look twice.
Step 1: Begin the cut in the back of the head, along the occipital. Take vertical sections out from the head and chip into the ends, cutting to the desired length.
Step 2: At the sides, pull horizontal sections out from the head and elevate slightly. Point cut into the ends, cutting to the desired length.
Step 3: Blend down into the nape, cutting in the same manner.
Step 4: Overdirect the hair from a side parting and point cut at the ends, cutting to blend.
Step 5: Using straight shears, clean up the line around the ear, cutting against the skin.
Step 6: Direct all the hair back to the nape and cut to clean up the line.
