For CLiC International, Lori Weinhold provides an hour-long demonstration of how to do the 45-degree haircut, an elevated haircut also known as the wedge or a graduated haircut.
The tutorial begins with tools already sanitized and the mannequin already draped with a towel and cape. To start, Weinhold demonstrates proper parting and sectioning of the hair; one of the parts will be the guideline for the length of the cut. Once the cutting is complete, Weinhold shows how to check that the cut is even throughout.
The CLiC (Certified Learning in Cosmetology) education system is used at Empire Beauty School, which has more than 100 beauty and cosmetology school campuses across the United States.
