Benefits of cutting hair wet……

Cutting wet hair offers you a great deal of control. This may be necessary when working with heavier densities and coarser textures that may prove problematic when cut dry. The moisture in the hair acts as both a lubricant and adhesive, binding hair and acting as a sort of detangler, making it easier to part and secure. Wet hair also has a greater elasticity than dry hair. This helps the hair to stretch more, resulting in strong shapes that are retained for long periods of time.

Cutting dry hair…….

When you’re cutting hair dry, you see the shape as it’s forming, so you just get a much more definite look, because you see the hair as it is, it takes the guessing game out of wet cuts. Because when you’re cutting hair wet, you really don’t get to see what the cut is looking like until you dry it.
In our training we refer to it like working on a sculpture — you’re curving it, you’re cutting it and in the end you have the most amazing shape in front of you.

Can the techniques be combined?

The techniques can not only be combined—they should be! Here at NV we recommend cutting hair while it is wet and then again when it is dry, this is the best way to ensure a flawless haircut and you truly can customise your haircut together with your stylist.
