Diamond sectioning along with the NEW Sam Villa InvisiBlend Shear will incorporate a decent amount of layering without losing the length – exactly what your guest is asking for – “I want layers but I don’t want to lose my length, can you achieve this for me?”
Diamond sectioning will enable the hair to tilt back away from the face to create layers in the crown area without going through and layering the entire cut.

Very late to this party....but as a 70 y/o lucky to have Farah Fawett hair, I know younger ones..who..? lol..
And having many hair cuts/trims I feel 80% don’t continue their education beyond state license so truly have no idea diff techniques in cutting hair, especially if went to bad beauty school. Too many hairdressers don’t have business experience n know how to maintain a clientele, let alone give a good hair cut, and listen to what their client is wanting.
I just watched this video yesterday, and did it to 2 clients today. Amazing results and it was a lot quicker service that all that sectioning through the hair. I dont have those texturizing shears but even without them the diamond shape section really helped me to get a shorter layers without any funkiness and loads of volume in the crown without all the fuss!! Great video!!! Thank you!!
I have been cutting my hair for several years and trying to copy things I have seen stylists do in the years that I did have my hair cut. The way he explains it it wouldn't be hard for someone to get a friend to learn to do this to your hair. It's worth a try.
most stylist should not have been licensed. License does not guarantee a stylist, an artist. Personally, I do to Jose Eber, Beverly Hills. A good cut will grow out nicely for months. Worth the money, you will save money You need to go to the better salons.
Bless your heart, a teacher you're not, but you're talented! telling us that big hair wants 5 or 6 carat diamonds and thin hair just maybe a 2-carat diamond doesn't have anything to do with what size of the section you want me to take LOL and all that stuff with those scissors I still don't know what's cool about him but I do know that my blond hair sometimes looks like a goat has snacked on it after I get a haircut LOL so you're right about that and I'm tickled pink there are scissors that don't show the marks!
Wow, thanks for that Sam! I need that volume on top as well. Now I can do it myself. InvisiBlend shears, eh? Bring em on. Years ago, went to hairdressers and they always told me my hair was this and that, never positive because they did not have a clue. Every head of hair is different but I believe a good stylist knows how to cut and style all kinds of hair and is able to deliver excellent results in all situations.
Thanks for this info. I will use it the next time I get my hair cut. I'm an old woman. I have never found a hair-cutter who could do anything I really like, even when I bring pictures. My single biggest complaint is that they NEVER give me any lift at the crown of my head. They just want to blow it dry, even though I tell them I'm more of a wash and air-dry person for day-to-day hair.
That is exactly the cut that I have been looking for forever! One huge problem: how do you get your hairdresser to practice this technique on your hair? Because I tried and the guy acted like he knew more and unfortunately wasn’t willing to give it a go. I’m about to try this on a second hairdresser to see what he says. I’m sceptical!!
Hi Lakshmi, We have lots of info on our website. You can see all of our upcoming events on our Events page: https://www.samvilla.com/landing/events/ The website is being worked on over the next week so you may want to look at it later next week.
Sorry, but that's SO NOT AN INVISIBLE LAYER!!! It's well blended, yes, but it's very much visible and it's slightly reminiscent of a short haircut that has a ton of extensions. Imo you took the diamond way too wide
I thought Sam Villa was very helpful, informative, and thorough with his cutting technique. I have been a hairdresser for 45 years and I always enjoy watching someone else's way of doing things. You should never think you know it all, you might be surprised at what else you can learn.
@Sam Villa Hair Tutorials i tried this on my client today and she liked it . Im so happy about it. Thank you so much to teach us how to create things. Stay blessed. You guys are good teachers. 😊😘💇♂️💇♀️
Hi Christine, it would just be a change of length to the layers to be more in balance with the perimeter length. Also, if you are concerned about removing too much density on the perimeter, you can make the diamond smaller.
As a hairdresser, I love watching these videos to learn more and bring more to my clients! However, all of the negative comments about hairdressers is very discouraging.. Our job is far from easy. There's so much to learn that no hairdresser ever knows it all. Not even Mr. Sam Villa. It all starts with a good consultation, folks. Learn how to communicate to your stylist what you're wanting and expecting because that is 90% of the reason why things go wrong.
Thanks for your comment Sierra... we agree, it's sad to see so many negative comments about the people in our industry. And, you are very right that many people don't understand the complexity of our job. We are working on a video right now that addresses your last comment... how to communicate best with your stylist to get the best results. Asking a stylist to replicate something that they aren't trained on will always put them in a bad position... kind of like asking a tattoo artist who specializes in solid black tribal tattoos to replicate a water color painting :-) We are really hoping this video will help many of the people out there that are having challenges with their stylist that are mainly about misunderstandings in communication.
watching this only confirms that I can't find anyone with this kind of knowledge its really sad. Everyone says I am never happy where I go. Its because they are like robots they do not know real technique. ugh I wish I could be your model!
Hey Mel, It can work on your hair as well... you may want to avoid going too short with the layers until you see your hair reacts. With thick hair, if you do this technique and the layers get too short, it can get a little "mushroomy"
it sure does :-) Almost all of our shears come in lefty and are the same price as our right handed shears. https://www.samvilla.com/pro/products/shears/signature-series-shears-lh/invisiblend-shear-left-handed
I've had only ONE hairstylist in my lifetime who knew how to do this...he advised...say you want layers with MOVEMENT. He's been layering my hair for the past 6 years...and finally it's out...it's called Ghost layering. Thank you Sam!
If you have a good relationship with your stylist, you could send them the video and ask if they have techniques that will give you a similar result. The challenge with asking a hairdresser to do something new is that it can push them out of their zone of expertise which will most likely yield a bad result when they may have their own way to achieve something very similar.
Reading the comments, I agree. You can’t find stylists that can cut hair let alone layers. I’m a stylist
And hove this technique. I also do a technique where I take similar partings and cut in shorter hair to support the weight of the longer hair and then pull the hair up 90 degrees and put in light surface layers. You never end up with Shelfy layers. Stylists aren’t safe from getting shelfy layers either. I had a fellow salon owner /former co-worker give me one of the shelfiest layered haircuts I’ve ever seen, it was so bad I questioned whether or not he liked me after that cut. Ha.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
