While undercuts have gained popularity as a design in and of itself, this technique is actually imperative for many other cuts as well. Due to the fact that it takes weight out of a cut and completely changes the shape of the way that hair falls, undercuts can be used to achieve super straight lines and swoon-worthy bobs. The severity of how much you cut and how short is also a factor when deciding to use this technique.

Other factors such as hair density, texture and wearability need to be accounted for as well. This makes the consultation a key piece when deciding whether or not to utilize an undercut. In the world of short haircuts, the undercut has evolved from a trend to a foundational technique necessary for today’s looks. This is why Sam Villa Professional is offering a class with Director of Education for Sam Villa, Andrew Carruthers.

If you’ve ever wondered how stylists get the perfect lob, bob or unbeatable pixie and crop it is most likely because they are using an undercut to some degree. Whether you’re just starting out or are a seasoned stylist, this class will give you the tools alongside the inspiration to get the looks your clients desire.

Master the cut with Andrew Carruthers during his LIVE Online Academy: Understanding the Undercut on Tuesday, March 27th from 6-8pm EST.
