    Hi Matt
    nice free tips on the trade as usual. Maybe a little tip for future video's. Wear lighter clothing as working on dark hair and wearing dark clothing makes it difficult to see the technique.
    Thanks for posting.

    In my old cosmetology school they would tell us lift your arm all the way up and I remember it was uncomfortable and I never got nice results. Thank You guys. For every hair cut I do now , I will figure out how to keep a nice consistency 😊

  • Posted on Jun 15, 2016 at 01:04 am

    Yay I do it right. I do agree it is more comfortable and more efficient!

    Thanks a lot

    This was helpful but hard to see. Perhaps wear something light in color while doing future educational recording or use a blonde mannequin?
