    Cutting technique

    My friend has asked me for this haircut. Her hair is a little bit longer than this at the moment. I was going to take a horseshoe section and clip out of the way. Then clipper the underneath. When it comes to the rest what cutting technique and angle would you guys use. Thanks

    High lift tint

    Hi, I’ve got a client, a young 17 yr old boy, who is fed up with how dark his hair has gotten. He is a natural level 6 and would like to reach a level 9/10. Do you think high lift tint would lift this and not be too brassy. Would rather do an all over colour as opposed to bleach foils. Thanks
