Hair Cutting: Dry vs. Wet (John Sahag + John Francis + Demi Moore)
When you get your hair done, does your hair stylist cut your hair wet or dry? The most common answer now a days is wet. However, dry hair cutting is a revolutionary way of cutting hair! The technique was coined by John Sahag, who was known as the first internationally-recognized freelance hairstylist. He performed his hair magic on celebrities from Gweneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt to Jennifer Anniston and Mick Jagger! Sahag is famous for giving Demi Moore her signature “boy cut” in the film “The Ghost”.
Dry cutting the hair involves cutting the hair in a series of layers before washing and coloring, to ensure a precise and even cut. It allows both the hair stylist and the client to see that shape of the hair as it forms through the cut, rather than waiting for the big reveal after the wash and blow dry! If you have ever experience a drastic change at the salon, you can imagine that this might be a good way to go.
When you hair is wet, it does not show its true length or volume, so cutting dry really gives your hair the benefit of the doubt. Your stylist is able to see every cowlick, curl, wave, and uneven length you have going on. When you hair is wet, it is almost impossible to see all of those imperfections.
Our very own John Francis has been cutting hair dry, just like John Sahag for over 10 years! He has been praised for his dry-cutting techniques and has been lovingly compared to Sahag over and over again. John Francis travels from celebrity client to client performing his dry-cutting, hair magic, just like Sahag once did! It is uncommon to find a hair stylist who cuts hair dry, but the advantages of cutting hair dry in comparison to wet are huge! If you have never had your hair cut dry, we encourage you to give it a go, drop into the salon for a consultation!
