About the masterclass

Founder Paul Davey walks you through the popular modern day ‘Shag’ haircut. This masterclass is all about mapping out a haircut to go from long to mid length with short layers. Paul shows you a variety of techniques through simple layering, over direction and personalising using a variety of texturing techniques. A simple trick is to cut with the natural hair texture, and see the shape develop as you work along. Always thinking of the face shape, and treating every client like a model and you're about to take her straight to a photo shoot to capture the final look. This class will only fill you with the confidence you need to go out and find someone to cut the 'shag’ on.
