The Calligraphy Cut

Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing by hand. Thousands of years ago, the Egyptians had already recognized this exceptional aesthetic aspect. These great artistic skills inspired the development of the calligraphy razor. The art of beautiful haircutting with unprecedented precision. The result- fuller hair which perceptibly feels soft and silky and is easy to style by creating different impressions – a magic experience for the guest and a joy for the artist.

The Calligraphy cut combines careful craftsmanship, the passion for creativity and innovative techniques. The special calligraphy razor cuts the hair obliquely, comparable with the gentle cut of a flower stem increasing the volume of the hair by anything from 150% up to 300% and allowing for much more flexibility in the individual strand.

This specific technique uses a special hairstyling tool known as a calligraphy knife or pen which is a long thin metal instrument with a sharp blade on the end that when used correctly can add volume to your hair without losing the soft lines.

The hair is expertly cut at a 21-degree angle, known as feathering, removing any split ends and resulting in your hair absorbing more moisture and nourishment. It’s actually exactly the same angle as florists cut flower stems to maximise their intake of water, so just like the flowers, your hair stays healthier for longer.

The texture of your hair will be greatly improved so this cut works perfectly for all hair types, and works particularly well for fine hair. It simply makes your hair lighter and easy to style and means you can go longer between cuts.

A calligraphy haircut before and after takes off inches but actually leaves ends looking and feeling softer without making the length appear shorter. Because of the hair preserving technique, you’ll get bouncy and voluminous hair with reduced split ends which you can easily style at home.

Razor Haircut

Hairdressing with a razor involves using a standard straight-edged razor in addition to the traditional scissor cut. The razor cut is all about creating a whisper, lighter look where light sections of your hair will appear to float.

In skilled hands, a razor cut is suitable for straight hair that isn’t prone to frizzing as the hair strands are shaved at an angle towards the ends, but even difficult propositions such as curly, weighty hair can benefit from a good razor cut that creates movement and definition as lighter hair curls more naturally. Because the strands are thinned to the tips you’ll instantly get more texture and structure.

As razor cutting requires dexterity and a deep understanding of how hair moves it must be carried out by stylists that have the skills and the vision to execute the procedure at a proficient level.
