Scissor vs. Razor: Four haircuts – two distinctly different techniques – and a world of possibilities; that’s Hairbrained’s fresh perspective on modern education. Taught by Gerard Scarpaci, Hairbrained Co-Founder, and Julian Perlingiero, world-class educator, the ‘Scissor vs. Razor’ course allows students to comfortably explore the points of difference between two dynamic tools.

“The sectioning, the combing, the body positioning – it’s all very much the same,” says Gerard. “It’s about precision and accuracy. The difference is in the tool, and the way it removes the hair. The razor moving up and down, at varied strokes – it’s like sketching. What the scissor does is more like a blueprint; the lines are sharp. Though the shapes are similar, the approaches are different.”
The ‘Scissor vs. Razor’ course is not only fun and informative, but it can help to elevate your career. “It’s important to be diverse,” confirms Julian. “I think a lot of my tool selection is based not just on the results that I want, but on the texture that’s in front of me.” And though precision and fundamental shapes will always reign supreme, understanding that different tools yield different results is valuable. “I think that there’s tons of ways to do things, as long as you do it with knowledge and control,” confirms Gerard.
