How to section hair for cutting layers?
Today, I’m going to show you how to section your hair for cutting layers so that you’ll look spectacular. You can do this by sections of hair stick pins or bobby pins that are varying in length.
A quick but easy technique on how to section your hair for cutting layers is to divide it into sections and then make a couple of snips in each section.
If you follow the steps I explain in this article, then you won’t have to worry about mistakes and know that your hair will come out perfect every time!
How do you want to style your layers?
Many people also use rubber bands but do not pin them as tightly as a lock of hair stick pin would be good for a type-4
The most important thing to remember when getting started with cutting your hair is to have an appropriate workspace that you’re comfortable enough using.
This includes equips that are comfortable/wide enough to move inside as well as a comfortable space outside of your working area.
When you are getting ready to do a technical task such as hair cutting, try to do it in a neutral place. If it is necessary for you to move, make sure that you have the appropriate space.
Do you already have that place?
Good, now that you have all the necessary materials.
Note: Here is a list I have created.
ITEMS NEEDED TO SECTION HAIR
- a chair
- a hairdressing cape
- a pair of razor-edged scissors or hairdresser’s scissors
- a sprayer to wet the hair
- 5 clips to tie each section
- a hair cutting comb
- a tail comb
Now that you have your space, materials and schedule all worked out, you’re ready to get to work!
As I told you earlier, there are many ways to do a layered cut. In this case, I am going to show you how to do the five easiest and most practical sections.
HOW TO SECTION YOUR HAIR FOR A LAYERED CUT STEP-BY-STEP
Try the following steps to section your hair or your friend’s hair correctly and proceed with the layered cut:
- The first thing you should do is make sure that you have everything you need. Whether it be for your living room or your home, this tip works for any place.
It’s not professional to leave your space messy and with out materials. Always keep a careful eye on the space you’re working in, to make sure it doesn’t become a safety hazard or it’s too distracting for your stylist.
Especially if you are in your salon, as it’s your calling card and will give you professionalism.
- First, saturate your hair with hairspray so that it’s completely wet. Next, section by twisting to deepen and divide.
Don’t forget to hydrate your strands before using a razor or a scissor. The key to great hair is being sectioned properly and giving each strand adequate time to dry without getting tangled up again.
- After thoroughly wetting the hair, start by combing it with a wide-tooth comb.
NOW, THE HAIR IS READY TO BE SECTIONED!
- You just need to divide your hair into two halves: ear to ear. You can use a comb for this, because it’s easier for you.
- Then, at the back half, section it in two again.
- Mark a rectangle in the middle of the head. To mark the points, take guide strands from that rectangle, guided to help you make two small dots on each side of the hairline.
- What is a guide strand? It’s a small lock which will prevent you from cutting uneven lengths.
You take it in whichever side of your hair that you want to avoid parting, and then make sure the lengths are equal.
- Then, finally, separate the two sections, which will be just above your ears.
Now you’re ready to move on to layering. So, you’re probably wondering:
WHAT DO I NEED TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN IT COMES TO LAYERING MY HAIR?
What you’ll want to keep in mind, depending on how many layers you want, is to raise the hair more or less.
One of the benefits of 5-section scheme is that you can use it for any layered cut.
A classic scheme like this one will give you professionalism regardless of whether you’re a new writer or not, as well as whether you want to do it yourself without help.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO IF I CUT MY OWN HAIR?
Comb the sections in your hair upward at a 180-degree angle, secure with a rubber band, to ensure no strands escape.
Here are some of the best tips on what to do if you want to create an amazing layered cut yourself. It’s easy if you just follow the steps and work through them one by one. You should not have any problems with this process.
While you might not need to ask for help when things are going well, always think twice before doing it alone!
It’s often beneficial to ask someone who has more knowledge in the subject if they can be of any assistance before making a decision.
WHAT DIFFICULTIES MIGHT I ENCOUNTER WHEN SECTIONING MY HAIR?
Past clients may be bringing previous, shorter versions of cuts or short strands of hair for you to create a new style with.
If you look through any of the sections and notice a pattern of uneven lengths, you can generally continue to work on each section individually & it will add up to the cut evenly.
Remember the guide strand for each section.
