About Program

Layers can drastically change the way the hair looks. In this video, Matt teaches about creating face-framing layers for long hair. Starting with a center part, Matt creates symmetrical sections and cuts the hair diagonal across the face to help create a parallel parting. The essential aspect of achieving beautiful layers is the elevation of the hand movements. By cutting the hair and holding it high half an inch at a time, it gives the hair a graduated shape and a smooth polish. Some of the tools, such as the Paul Mitchell memory shaper, Hot off the Press, and the Turbo Light blow dryer, can help finish off the look by forming smooth layers to the eye and give it a clean, fresh look.
