Why is sectioning important in a haircut? MODERN met with Sam Villa earlier today for a photo shoot. Villa spent more than 30 minutes sectioning the hair (for a cut that took less than FIVE MINUTES!)

"Sectioning is important for control especially when you are detaching a haircut," says Villa. "It gives you an opportunity to creat consistent balance throughout the cut. Think of sectioning like cut and paste when working on your computer. Sectioning can adjust based on the end result. For example, for fine hair make your diamond section smaller to maintain more weight at the perimeter. When hair is thick make your diamond section larger to remove more hair from underneath. Remember cutting by feel requires more time and in todays world clients want in and out. Section, my friends, for control and make your work easy."

Check out this 2 minute video to learn about the sectioning for the shoot today and check in with MODERN in a few months to see the end result. It's gorgeous.
