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!!

Hi Sam you are inspiring. I've been cutting my hair for years, how do I purchase an Inviziblend shears?
tmsouth1 (10 days ago)
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.

Way complicated. U can't clearly say how u do it. The ladies need to have uuu do it. Ha!

U can't do hair in a fitted jacket. It's arm restrictive.

Sam is a hair cut genius and he loves what he s doing thats probably his secret. And I always thought hair cutting talent is also talent for geometrics

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!
RamblingRose (21 days ago)
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.

I want to buy!!!
Aunt Bold Ire (25 days ago)
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.
sandra johnson (29 days ago)
To get my hair cut like this I would have to fly to Paris. Maybe New York. I live in a tiny country town in the south. I think there's a barber shop. Lol.
Rowena F Crumpler (1 month ago)
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!!

I'm a license master barber. Roffler trained. We never heard of diamond of zigzag haircuts. This is a joke if I ever heard . Another wanna be show off.
Jerry Ryan (1 month ago)
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.

I am an ex hairdresser , I usually cut my own hair , but I don't think I will be able to do this on my own hair I wish I could . This gives great volume great cut .
Blazing Saddles (2 months ago)
Layering easy with shears it's just cutting off the extra weight. Which gives hair not only volumes but body too.

This is great mr. Sam, but what about long thin hair? How do we create this on long hair?
christine latchman (2 months ago)
@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. 😊😘💇‍♂️💇‍♀️
christine latchman (2 months ago)
@Sam Villa Hair Tutorials thank you to reply mr. Sam
Sam Villa Hair Tutorials (2 months ago)
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.
Sierra Campbell (3 months ago)
@Sam Villa Hair Tutorials wow! Thank you so much for responding to me!❤ that is an amazing idea for a video! I'll keep my eyes peeled for it!
Sam Villa Hair Tutorials (3 months ago)
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.

I have thick hair without volume it's thick and flat as a board and I'm a brunette/gray yep 55 would this diamond cut work on my hair too?
Sam Villa Hair Tutorials (3 months ago)
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"

What is the proper ettihqutte to ask for a haircut just like this video. I feel like they need the scissors and the tutorial. I don't trust anyone I've had my hair ruined too many times 😭😭😭
Sam Villa Hair Tutorials (4 months ago)
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.
Hair is geormetry (4 months ago)
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.
omg! this guy is convincing but he is not very good
