Dry Cut – ($50+) Dry cutting the hair will allow the stylist to see exactly how the hair will fall providing better blending, and allows the stylist to personalize your cut. Dry cutting can be great for thick-haired women who want to remove bulk. For women with curly hair, dry cutting lets hairstylists visually see how each unique curl falls providing them the opportunity to cut each one individually.
What is Dry Cutting?
Dry cutting hair is basically what it sounds like. The stylist will cut your hair while it is still dry, instead of the traditional wash, wet cut, blow out. This is a great hair cutting alternative which offers numerous benefits, particularly to women with incredibly thick or curly hair.
Benefits of Dry Cutting
The benefits of dry cutting the hair has to do with creating the perfect cut. When the hair is still dry, the stylist can see how the hair falls as they cut it. This allows for better blending, and a more personalized cut. Women with exceptionally thick hair can choose the dry cutting method to remove bulk or excess hair.
Curly haired women probably already know the difficulties that come with traditional wet cutting and blow out methods. Curls simply aren’t the same when they are wet, and may be weighed down to the point that the hair appears straight. Dry cutting, however, allows for the stylist to see how every unique curl naturally falls about the head. This allows them to cut each hair individually for a well-groomed, yet natural style unique to each woman and her lustrous locks.
What To Expect
When you arrive at the salon, your stylist will discuss with you the exact look you are aiming for. They may offer professional advice based on your hair’s length, thickness, shape of your face, etc. Together, the two of you will come up with a plan as to what the best style (and method of achieving it) is.
Since your hair will be cut while it is dry, you will not have a shampoo, condition, and rinse prior to cutting. The price of dry cutting begins at $40, but may be more based on the complexity of your chosen style. Your stylist will discuss this with you in advance, so you know what to expect.
Please remember to leave enough time in your schedule for your stylist to work their magic. Hair cutting is an art which takes time if it is to be done right, and you may not get the perfect results you desire if you rush your hair stylist.

Razor Cut – ($50+) Using a razor helps to enable more swing and movement in hairstyles; a modern, jagged, disheveled line; the ability to redefine the texture of the hair; thinning out thicker textures; short, messy, and undone hairstyles, and beautiful soft-shaped layers.
What is razor cutting?
The razor cutting technique makes use of a hair razor instead of traditional cutting scissors. This method allows for an entirely different kind of cut. Instead of conventional, well-trimmed lines, you are given the ability to have a modern, jagged, disheveled look which has swing and movement. This allows for a much more organic appearance, without straight lines and defined layers.
The razor used in this process is not your typical razor. It is a special styling tool, with a long handle and a longer-than-normal straight-edged razor. Many stylists prefer the use of a razor over scissors, while others prefer scissors, and still others are equally adept at both with no strong preferences.
Benefits of Razor Cutting
There are many benefits associated with razor cutting. First and foremost, it gives you a wild, unique look that exudes confidence. Your hair will have more swing and movement than traditional scissor cuts, and you can create those short, messy, undone hairstyles that require very little upkeep. Beautiful, soft-shaped, natural appearing layers can also be achieved with razor cutting. The possibilities are endless, but the results are always breath taking.
Razor cutting has the unique benefit of being able to redefine the texture of your hair. It can be used to thin out thicker textures, or create the idea of more volume, depending on the exact look you wish to achieve.
Is Razor Cutting For You?
Razor cutting is best for men or women who have straight to moderately wavy hair. People with tight curls, African texturing, or an exceptionally large amount of wave to their hair may not be the best candidates for razor cutting. If you have these types of hair, razor cutting could leave you with unwanted frizz or a high-maintenance cut, which is typically the exact opposite of what customers are trying to achieve.
What To Expect
You should free up enough time in your schedule to allow your stylist to complete their work. The more complicated the style, the longer it will take. Once your stylist is finished, you will be able to leave the salon audience-ready with a modern look which is sure to turn heads. Razor cutting begins at $40, and could cost more depending on several factors. You can discuss this with your stylist prior to beginning, so there are no surprises.

An Explanation of Maintenance Levels
Hair styles can range from almost no maintenance to high maintenance. Those styles with almost no upkeep necessary will take almost no time in your schedule. These may be styles which you can simply brush or shake out and go about your day.
High maintenance styles are those which require a large amount of time to upkeep. These may require daily flat ironing, blow drying, curling, or the use of hair products such as gel, hair spray, or smoother, in order to look the way it is supposed to. Many others fall somewhere between on the spectrum, requiring a minimum or moderate amount of time.
The level of maintenance required varies for every style, and is an important thing to discuss with your stylist. Some people do not mind investing half an hour to an hour on their hair nearly daily, while other customers simply do not have the time for this.
