Short Sleek

Why not have a go yourself with a friend and create your own masterpiece. Just follow the steps below for this beautiful style, perfect for parties and special occasions.


To obtain a textured fringe, using small sections cut your guide line, to obtain the length required, continue using the same amount of hair each time until all your fringe section is cut, evenly.

To obtain textured jagged look, from the centre of your fringe take a one inch section placing it in your fingers holding it downwards in a 90 degree angle as illustrated in the picture. Instead of cutting in a straight line, cut into your line downwards taking great care only to slice into the hair not by cutting out large chunks.

This hair style is basically obtained by slicing the hair rather than cutting, in a club cut method, by slicing the hair you obtain a more moveable textured look.

Using your comb as your guideline, lift up small sections, as you comb slides through the hair you slice into (chip into) the hair in a upwards action, this creates texture at the nape of the hair line.

Sectioning hair from ear to ear taking small sections you slice the hair in a upwards movement, taking care not to take away too much length, you only way to achieve a reduced bulk (thickness).


Use a soft hold wax or texture cream on the ends of the hair to create interest!
