A New Way to Create Deep Interior Texture

A lot of today’s hot hair trends have deep interior texture, loose ends and lots of movement within the shape.  Jesse Linares, Sam Villa ArTeam member, suggests approaching this type of texture from the inside out to achieve the desired effect the first time around. 

“Have you ever point cut an exterior wanting to break it down, drop it and have to do it 2-3 more times to get the movement you want?” says Linares. “This happens because you can’t get quite deep enough into the interior to make an impact.”

Working from the inside out removes length while creating deep interior texture. It creates predictable texture the first time around and saves time. “Cutting from the outside in allows you to take off length, but it doesn’t create as much texture because the shear can’t reach in as deep as it can when cutting from the inside out,” adds Linares.
