Ruth Roche Reveals Her Best Tips for Cutting Layers

When your client wants something different, more exciting, but not a radical change, think about giving them long, sexy layers that add volume, texture and movement. “Long layers create more action on the surface, so whether hair is worn wavy or smooth, there’s more personality,” says Ruth Roche, artistic ambassador for Pureology Serious Colour Care. Here, Roche reveals her best tips for cutting layers.

1. Establish the perimeter length by using deep point cutting.

2. Slide cut vertical sections from short to long—making the ends soft, loose and modern. 

3. Use pie-shaped sections on the top and sides, cutting short to long.
