Difference between French & British Cutting

What's the difference?

For those of us who have attended cosmetology school, we learned the British way to cut hair. Did you know there is another way? Here in Atlanta we don’t have to go to cosmetology school, instead we have the opportunity to apprentice under a master stylist. Within our salon at Jamison Shaw Hairdressers, French cutting is the only thing we know, and do because it's better!

Why is the French method better? Let’s break it down:

British haircutting is building the shape from the bottom up. It is angular (90 degree angles, or 180 degree angles) and architectural. In some instances a British cut is what your client wants with hard lines and angles, and that’s okay! However, in French haircutting is building the shape from the top down. It's soft and less angular. Following the head shape it allows the hair to fall in soft moving layers. For that reason, the same haircut can look completely different person to person since each person’s head is a different shape. The French cutting method also provides versatility so the guest can wear their hair in different styles.

In the time it takes someone to cut a traditional British bob, the French hairdresser will have cut 3 bobs and be well on their way to cutting the 4th. French cutting allows us to work smarter not harder! Everyone wants to know the secret to making more money behind the chair, and this is one of them!

Invest in the French cutting education you need. At our academy in Atlanta our world renowned educators teach you the efficiency of French Hairdressing and how to build your clientele learning to cut french the right way!
