Shapes and Texture

Every stylist at Dante salon is thoroughly trained in Hair Cutting. At Dante Salon we use professional language, a language of hair. There are many ways a hair can be cut, in order to obtain different results. Just so you can get a better understanding on how your hair will be cut, we will present a few cutting techniques used by our top notch Stylists.

Slide cutting

It is using slowly, closing blades to visually blend shorter to longer lengths of hair

Razor cutting

Is a technique used to relieve some of the weight on Thick hair. It adds bounciness to curls and movement throughout the hair. Razor cutting will add softness to the facial features.


Layering is one of the most common hair cutting techniques. Layers reduce the weight of thick hair, and adds volume and texture to fine hair. They add movement and versatility to the hairstyle.

Point cutting

Point cutting is mostly used to soften the bluntness of a haircut.  By using the tips of the shears we can create a textured edge.  This is a cut appropriate for all types of hair, from fine to thick hair.


This is a technique through which the hair is cut progressively shorter towards the back.  It is mostly used in cutting inverted bob hairstyles. Graduation cutting works really well on medium thick hair. Thick hair should be finished with deep parallel point cutting.

Deep parallel point cutting

Using  the length of the blade to reduce weight, without reducing weight. This is a great way to create a “layered” look and feel without having layers.


Slicing is created by using open blades to give the hair a loose, seemless feel. This is a great way to get texture and well defined tresses.  It is a great cutting technique for women with not too fine nor too thick hair.


The shears are used to cut through the hair creating a definite separation.

Brick cutting

The tips of the shears are used to cut into the hair systematically removing weight.

Twist cutting

The shears are used to cut twists of hair creating random separation.


A single blade of the shear is used with a razoring action, creating a frayed texture
