The cascade haircut has been popular with the beautiful half of humanity for a long time. It suits all hair types, gives it noticeable volume and does not need long styling.
The cascade allows you to wear bangs or not at all. A significant plus is that the haircut is suitable for girls with all face shapes. It is only important to correctly choose the length of the steps of the cascading haircut.
The cascade on short hair is suitable for owners of thin and sparse hair. Highlighting will add extra volume to your haircut. A cascade on medium-length hair will make your hair voluminous and will not restrict you from creating a variety of styles. It will give your hair a luxurious look. The cascade on long hair is performed in several variations: the classic cascade - the steps have a very smooth transition, ragged - the transition is clearly expressed and asymmetric - elongated strands of various lengths.
The essence of the haircut can be understood from its name: the length of the hair cascades from shorter hairs at the crown, to longer hairs at the bottom of the head.
A cascade haircut is a kind of hair steps that go from the crown to the long parts at the shoulder blades.
The execution of the haircut is simple, but there are main points that experienced masters advise not to overlook. The head should be washed, the hair should be lightly patted with a towel and combed. Dry hair is difficult to cope with, they tend to crumble during a haircut.
The cutting technique is presented in two types: strand by strand is cut off or the control strand is first cut.
When cutting hair using the "control strand" technique, the hair is divided into zones: in the form of the letter P, a parting is made in the parietal zone. The middle part is separated by two vertical partings in the back of the head, and two temporo-lateral zones are separated by partings from the crown to the ear. Hair strands in each zone should be twisted into flagella and pinned with clamps so as not to interfere. The haircut starts from the parietal zone. To do this, take a small strand and comb it out at a right angle. Then it is fixed with your fingers, lifted perpendicular to the head and trimmed to the required length. Most often, it is cut off at the level of the bridge of the nose, and the length of this strand is 5-7 cm. The resulting length is considered the main control line, which the master will be guided by in further hair cutting. Further, the entire part of the hair in the parietal zone is combed out perpendicular to the head and cut at the level of the control strand. Do the same with hair in the middle part of the occipital zone. In each zone, the main strand is highlighted, to which the entire bulk of the hair is combed out.
At the end of the haircut, the face is framed. Then a check is carried out: the strands are combed out in different directions and the visible drops are eliminated.
If the hair is thick, thinning should be done to help remove the heaviness of the hair.
Performing a haircut using the strand-by-strand technique, where the control part at the back of the head is separated, the hairdresser creates levels, moving from the back of the head to the forehead, and combing the strands from the crown of the head.
Each cascade haircut technique allows you to hide some flaws in the client's face and emphasize the advantages.
Any experienced specialist, having a lot of knowledge, with a haircut tries to focus on the client's merits, hide minor flaws and emphasize individuality. Therefore, do not forget about the hair structure of a particular person. Experts do not recommend cascading haircuts for girls and women with very curly or thick heavy hair.
