To most, the shape of your hair in its natural state embodies what “texture” is. To hairstylists, texture can refer to so much more! We see texture most often in styling and haircuts. As hairdressers, we are able to separate texture from its natural state and use it as a tool to create something new. More so, by utilizing certain tools and products, we can actually create texture within the hair. When fashioning a new cut, knowing how to handle someone’s natural texture is one thing and knowing how to cut texture into it is another. Keep reading for a few of our favorite texturizing tips and how you can utilize them in your latest styles!

For Bangs That Are Too Heavy

A simple fix for a client that feels their fringe is too heavy is to simply texturize them! This won’t impact the overall length; it will simply take weight out – helping fringe appear more feathered. Aside from changing the appearance, by texturizing bangs, it can also help create a lighter, voluminous finish. Take a peek at this quick and easy video from Sam Villa Education Director Andrew Carruthers to see his favorite technique for removing weight in bangs with the Sam Villa Signature Series InvisiBlend Shear.

To Removing Excess Weight & Creating Movement

Texturizing techniques have made it possible for clients of all densities to get the look they really desire. From bobs on thick hair to playful layers on long locks. If you’ve been looking for a way to step up your finishing, texturizing is the way to get there. The first place to start is by investing in the proper tools to get you the results you're looking for. We highly recommend the Sam Villa Signature Series Reversible Blending Shear - this tool removes excess weight and blunt lines and is easily reversible to be used on each side of the head seamlessly.

Make A Statement

When it comes to short hairstyles and men’s cuts, Sam Villa Education Director Andrew Carruthers says, “If you want visual texture, you have to get more aggressive.  So, don’t just disrupt the ends, take the razor closer to the scalp to texturize more of each hair strand.” All too often stylists can be scared to take a risk when texturizing, but trying out these techniques on the right client is key. If you’re nervous to take the leap, start off by testing things out on a doll head first.
