*The Business of Balyage highly recommends attending Razor Cutting Essentials prior to moving on to Razor Cutting Advanced. This will support a sense of comfort and confidence with your razor, as well as an understanding of its anatomy, and the foundational techniques utilized in creating the more advanced looks.



level one class

The Essentials of Razor Cutting is an exclusive cutting class where we will go in-depth into the position, placement and purpose necessary to become a skilled razor specialist. We will go over the anatomy of the razor, the optimum clients to use a razor on, what results you can expect from using a razor on your cuts, and how a razor can add texture and movement to your cutting services.

We will address open vs. closed blade strokes, the purpose of tipping and weight removal, followed by two hands-on portions, one devoted to the effortless looking (Lob) Long Bob followed an A-Line with an Undercut and A multifunctional bang.

Our Razor Cutting Essentials class is highly recommended prior to moving forward to our advanced and creative razor cutting courses.

Approximate class time is 4.5 hrs


level two class

Our Razor Cutting Advanced class is an exclusive cutting class where we will go in depth into the foundation of creating some of the most desirable shapes with one of the most powerful tools. We focus on the art of keeping both hands moving as we craft custom short to long cutting.

We will address the practice of understanding weight and foreseeing where it will collapse to craft your perfect cut and weight while maintaining length with our Long Layered Razor cut, coupled with an overcut.

Finally, we move into pixies and the art of getting comfortable with your razor being used in a much shorter area to create space. This razored pixie is created with both round and concave layers to keep a soft look and designing the hair to have more freedom of movement while maintaining texture and volume.

We recommend that each student take our Razor Cutting Essentials class in order to feel comfortable and confident with their razors as well as understanding the anatomy of the razor and the foundation techniques to creating these advanced looks.
