A cut above the rest – Signature Haircutting
What does it mean to have a signature haircut?
Each individual has his very own handwriting signature that nobody else can ever copy. We use our handwriting signature affixed in all major documents and contracts like birth certificates, check books, Identification cards, school records, and even on receipts. It is our own way of putting our ‘mark’ on these documents that is solely unique for each individual. Have you ever wondered why salons nowadays use the term ‘signature haircut’ in their service menu?, and how come having a haircut with these ‘signature’ hairstylists would cost you more than your traditional hair cutter , ranging from more than 600 hundred pesos to a few thousands of pesos compared to a traditional 50 peso haircut). And finally, what does it really mean to have a ‘signature’ haircut?
Cutting hair is a skill; hence it can be learned. When an apprentice hairdresser starts to learn how to cut hair, basic skills and competency standards are given to lay down the foundation of basic haircuts which eventually lead to mastering a limitless number of hair styles. So does this mean that when anyone who has undergone proper training can call himself a signature haircutter?.No, it doesn’t mean that when you know the “A,B,C’s that it would follow that you could already write a sentence, let alone spell a word. Same is true with haircutting, you still need years of experience, thousands of models, long hours of practice before a haircutter could truly express himself and portray his art thru his creations.
Though each student may be using the same tools and techniques in cutting a particular haircut, each haircut would always turn out different from one another however subtle it may be.
