Razor cutting is used for many different reasons:

  • To blunt the ends.
  • To thin the hair.
  • To add more shape and texture.

Most razor cuts look fantastic on men's hairstyles, as they create a great textured look, but not all hairstyles suit razor cutting and razored hair is not always a great idea.

If you're not too careful, using the razor can often make the ends look frizzy and unhealthy and it is not suggested for people with curly hair textures.

Razor cutting can also thin the hair really well, so it's not a good idea for fine hair types. Razor cuts will, however, suit short to medium straight hair lengths.

So, remember, when you ask to have your hair razored, take a look at your hair before you let the hairdresser use it.
