Hi this is Stephanie from Epicenter Hair in Portland, Oregon for About.com, and this is how to get an edgy long cut for men.
Starting an Edgy Long Men's Haircut
Using freshly washed hair apply sea salt spray as your cutting lotion. Comb the hair to its natural fall, and decide with your client where you want to keep your length.
Cutting an Edgy Long Men's Haircut
Using diagonal forward sections cut your hair with the feather razor to the appropriate length. Isolate the top section using horseshoe parting.
Continue cutting the length, taking the next section from the occipital to the nape of the hair using your feather razor to cut from short to long scooping out the hair from each section.
Working the top section into radial sections twisting to isolate each section, 5 in front and 5 in back. Using your razor to scoop out the hair from short to long to maintain as much length in front as needed.
Texturize the hair with a razor by holding out the section, placing the razor against the hair and sliding out from mid length to end. This will reduce weight and create an edgy texture.
In the top section comb straight up while you texturize the hair and personalize the fringe area to the client’s desire
Remove any additional weight
Use sea salt spray. Blow dry the hair using your fingers to bring out natural texture.
And this is how you achieve an edgy long cut for men.
