Razor cuts for women are a way to soften, lighten, and reduce hair. Women who want a razor cut should have straight or slightly curly hair. Cutting curly hair with a razor will make it look unruly and frizzy. The razor cut is usually used on short to medium hair, but some look good with long hair.
Razor cuts for women
1. Hair thinning
For women with very thick hair, cutting with a razor is one of the best options to reduce it. To thin your hair, you may want your stylist to cut it in layers first. Hair incapable not only looks better on long hair, but it will also help thin your hair a bit more. Then, while your hair is wet, the razor is used downward from about half the length of your hair, removing excess hair. When done, you will have voluminous layered hair that is thinner and more manageable.
2. Disheveled hair
A razor cut works excellent on a messy cut because it has layers and uneven cuts. Have your stylist create multiple layers using the razor to add more volume to your hair. This style looks best on women with straight hair – curly hair can look frizzy. Use a diffuser in your hairdryer to reduce puffiness and add volume by distributing the hot air. Add some hair product to keep the cut in place.
3. Thin layers
To achieve thin layers:
- Have your stylist cut a side fringe in your hair and then add medium layers on top using the razor while leaving the layers below long. This style will make the ends look light and thin.
- When you style yourself, blow dry your hair using a medium-sized round brush. This will help straighten your hair while adding volume.
- Tousle the back to add more volume, or use a hair straightener for a straight style.
