Whether to use straight shears or razors depends on hair texture, length, and your desired result. The use of a razor in hair styling allows for a more blended line and keeping length while eliminating bulk. While some people may be nervous of the razor cut because they’ve either heard that it can lead to frayed ends, or have experienced frayed ends after a razor cut, that’s the result of poor technique. Proper razor cutting technique, in which Kerry is thoroughly skilled, will lead to a better cut. In some instances, Kerry will use scissors for a more defined line. Kerry will carefully match the hair-cutting technique with your hair type.
Best practices in hair cutting is to cut wet hair. This allows for more control of hair during the cut. Dry cutting is sometimes needed, particularly with curly or wavy hair, which behaves differently when wet versus dry, to fine tune the cut.
Kerry is a corrective color specialist and works almost exclusively with Goldwell products for their low ammonia content, which results in a much more natural end result. Many stylists apply ammonia color to the re-growth area and then work it through to the ends, which results in overly processed ends, as well as potentially darker colors than intended. Kerry colors ends with an ammonia-free gloss which conditions hair and refreshes the color.
