Medium Fade Haircut

Medium Fade HaircutWe are very excited to release our newest video: The Medium Fade Haircut with a longer textured top. Anytime you are leaving a longer top and cutting the sides very close it can be very challenging. Some of the important things to remember are not to fade higher than the widest point of the head and make sure the blending area is never higher than the front length. These are the two most important instructions in providing a balanced medium fade or any fade for that matter.

Greg Zorian at The International Beauty Show with The Andis Company

IMG_3598I just returned from the International Beauty Show working as a platform artist for The Andis Company. It was an honor to be chosen to represent such a great company with the highest quality of  educators and hair cutting tools. I had the opportunity to spend three days with three incredible Andis educators: Jessica Zeinstra, Kenny Duncan, and Danny Ammorium. We had a blast on stage cutting hair and demonstrating the latest in clipper technology.

I also had the opportunity to talk to many students who have taken my barbering seminars in my home town of Albany, New York as well as barber and cosmetology schools throughout the Northeast and New England. I also had the chance to meet many longtime members of my website as well as numerous subscribers to my YouTube channel. It was an honor to be surrounded by such positive energy and a huge group of people that share an incredible passion for what we do for a living.

Barber Training Course at Gregory’s Barbershop

IMG_8298We just completed our latest barber training course at Gregory’s Barbershop in Albany, New York. It was an honor to work with such and incredibly talented and fun group of people. We all had a blast working all day on what is normally a day off in the hair business. This group was extremely hungry to learn everything we could teach them in 9 hours. We covered a lot of ground starting out with the 4 basic barbering techniques: Scissor Over Fingers, Scissor Over Comb, Clipper Over comb, and Blade On Skin. It is our strong feeling that if you can master these four techniques there will be no stopping you when it comes to building your male clientele.

Next up we worked on the two basic shapes of men’s hairstyles. It’s very simple. Men’s haircuts have either a square shape with weight in the corners so the hair does not stand up and can be styled traditionally or they have a contoured shape. All that means is the hair is cut to the contour of the shape of the head. Think brush cuts, ivy league haircuts, and all types of hawks.

After covering the basics we jumped right in to cutting hair. We were able to do five haircuts on our mannequins. We started out with a long men’s layer cut with disconnected bangs. In other words the haircut was blended visually but not technically. The one thing we cautioned the class about was not to confuse the term disconnected for an uneven haircut. Next up was one of the most popular haircuts of all of our barbering seminars: The Pompadour. Think Bruno Mars at the Grammy’s or the halftime show at the Super Bowl. We always have a competition to see who can get their “Pomp” to stand up the tallest. Yes, we actually measure the height of the top to determine the winner. After The Pompadour we moved on to the traditional business cut. Think suit and tie guy. Side part with a nice blend and natural hairline. From there we cut a short version of the Ivy League haircut: think James Bond in “Skyfall”. Last but certainly not least is the dreaded flattop. I say dreaded flattop because most cosmetologists and beginning barbers are extremely afraid of cutting flattops. We are cutting square shape on a round object and it takes a lot of practice.

If you missed out on this sold out class don’t worry there are more to come. Keep an eye out on the blog and sign up for our e-mail list to stay up informed on when and where the next class is going to be held. We hope to see you soon….
