Short Hair Cuts, Colors & Styles

Randy Topham demonstrates two short hair cuts using clippers and shears, two colors, and two styles on each model to illustrate the versatility of the cuts. Learn to create a variation on a sharp short bob by framing the sides with a sloping fringe and long bangs with shears; deposit color, leaving natural hair color as highlighter with a protective clear color for a soft blend from root to tip; then style for a sleek forward flair or for an elegant evening with loose, creatively shaped curls. And learn how to feather-edge with a razor for a disconnected, funky yet chic style; pop the blonde with panels of shadow with color blocking; and, style for a spontaneous look with scrunching or for a luxurious sleek with sculpted touches created with fibrous gum.
