Blunt Snip Haircut: Harmony of the Haircut and Lunar Hair Chart
July 18, 2012
Scheduling your next haircut? There are some important things you should keep in mind before you cut! Like the blunt snip haircut!
Make Sure to Check Out the Lunar Hair Chart First
The blunt snip cut is an important part to healthy hair. But, if you're not cutting on the right days that would lead to stunting hair growth. It's always important to check the chart!
It's important to cut your hair once a season. Usually during summer/winter solstices and spring/autumn equinoxes. Even if you're trying to grow your hair long, or you have hair that is particularly thin, managing your hair through carefully selected haircuts throughout the year benefits your hair in ways no shampoo, creme rinse, or leave-in treatment ever will. Managing dry and split ends by regular cutting (even if "regular" is cutting 1/8 of an inch every four months) is what is going to promote healthy hair.
Why the Blunt Snip Haircut?
When you (and your hairdresser) decide on the appropriate calendar date, be sure to use the Blunt Snip Haircut Technique. It gives the best results with all hair types and is adaptable for virtually any style.
At world-renowned Kenneth’s Salon in New York City, Anthony Morrocco specialized in this first-rate technique for A-list clients including Jackie Kennedy and Lauren Bacall. Done in sections while hair is wet, the blunt snip cut should incorporate careful shaping to prevent a chopped look.
Do’s and Don’t of the Blunt Snip Haircut
DO– cut your hair while it’s wet
DO-section your hair, it should incorporate careful shaping in the blunt snip haircut to prevent a chopped look
DON’T– layer unless your hair is extremely short
DON’T– use “undercutting”
DON’T– use a razor to trim or cut
On the subject of other people, there are a few key points to keep in mind if you’re having someone do your lunar-coordinated cut in a salon. Always insist upon a blunt snip haircut on wet hair. If your hair isn’t uniformly one length, holding sectioned strands out and trimming on the same incline-angle as they grow will work, whether you are doing the cut yourself or enlisting professional assistance.
Sometimes in the salon environment it can be quite tempting to participate in and encourage a lot of chatter with your hairdresser. Countless hair cuts have been ruined by this carelessness. Instead, do your best to focus on the accuracy of your trim, making sure the beauty operator does not turn your appointment into a social gossip hour during which too much gets sheared off.
So get your lunar dates decided and book your next hair appointment today!
