Hairdressing Technique that has Taken Europe By Storm Now Available at AVANTI!
Calligraphy Cut Creates Voluminous, Textured Hair with Specially Designed Angled Blade. Calligraphy Cut is a hairdressing tool and technique that allows hairdressers to create textured, voluminous hairstyles for clients with a precision-sharp pen-shaped tool. Calligraphy Cut was introduced in Europe more than 20 years ago and is starting to be embraced by salons in the United States. Avanti Day Resort is introducing Calligraphy Cut to the region.
Calligraphy Cut was developed by Frank Brormann, German-born master stylist and inventor of the Calligraphy Pen, the angled-edge tool used in the cutting technique. Brormann says he got his inspiration while cutting flowers. Brormann said, “I realized that if you cut in a perfect angle, you can increase the [flower’s surface area] nearly three times. And if you can do that to flowers, why not with hair?”
The Calligraphy Pen’s blade is angled at three degrees, which cuts each strand of hair on the diagonal. Holding the pen like a paint brush and using pulsing strokes toward the tips of a client’s hair allows the hairdresser to cut hair at a 21-degree angle, which increases surface area at the tip by 270 percent. The angle gives hair motion, vibrance and bounce that cannot be achieved with even the sharpest pair of scissors.
The technique allows hair to stay healthier far longer than traditional styling. For the client, no special products are required to keep hair looking as good as when she leaves the styling chair, only a simple blow dry that the hairdresser can demonstrate.
