Recently I had a chance to give a men’s haircutting demonstration at The DiGrigoli School Of Cosmetology. This is one of my favorite schools to visit. The owner Paul DiGrigoli is a nationally renowned motivational speaker and creates a very exciting atmosphere at the school. I had a great time with and awesome group of students. They were very polite and attentive and a few of them made for great hair cut models.
I taught the students about the four basic barbering techniques as well as gave them some advice on the best tools to invest in when they graduate and get their first job in the industry. I demonstrated four very different haircuts for the students. The first haircut was a barbershop regular haircut that focused primarily on the scissor over comb technique. Next up was a side part hairstyle with the part razor cut into the haircut. The third haircut was a graduated hair in which I showed the students how to create a shorter outline faded in to a longer top without creating a weight line or line of demarcation that needed to be blended out. Lastly, I cut a female version of the Pompadour haircut with an undercut.
I had a blast with a great bunch of people and can’t wait to go back in a few months to demonstrate the art of barbering again.
