Have you ever found yourself sitting in the stylist’s chair at the salon overcome with fear and regret mid-cut because you can’t judge whether you’ll be swooning or sobbing once inches of your hair are snipped off? We’ve all been there, but switching to a dry cut in lieu of the traditional wet technique might save you from the stress of guesswork during your next salon visit.
“When a craftsman cuts your hair [dry], they are not only envisioning the look and style you want, but also taking into consideration that when the guest leaves, she will be able to replicate the look easily, and that the grow out will still stay looking beautiful when she comes for her next visit,When wet, hair is denser, stretches, and thanks to elasticity, appears longer, making the end result of a cut less predictable. Since soaked strands can look drastically different than when it’s dry—especially if your hair is curly—cutting prior to shampooing allows a stylist to create a more detailed cut that’s realistic to how hair will look and behave in everyday life outside of the salon.
