A customer comes in with a head of hair that had been growing for a long time, say six months for example. This hairy customer wants their six months of growth (or more) cut off. As you can imagine, you have a difficult job on your hands. Extra long hair is hard to handle, to the point where you could spend as much as double or triple the time to get it cut.
A good way to make it easier is by giving an “approximate haircut”. This extra step only takes a few minutes, but it shortens your cutting time by half or more. Here’s how:
1. Wet the hair and comb/brush it into its lay down position, with the hair grain.
2. While keeping in mind what is wanted for the final length, comb out the hair in ten to fifteen places all over the head, and cut off the hair with scissors while leaving the hair an inch longer than what the final length will be.
That’s it–you have made your task much easier.
