Tips for a Better Blend

Tips for a Better Blend
I have found the following very helpful for getting a good blend.

When i have been for a cut in of a new piece,i find the blend is never spot on,so when i detach,and wash,dry the piece,and gently brush the hair,i pin the piece on a stryfoam head,then i go around the edge of the piece hair with a gillette razor.
I scrape gently at the ends of the hair going down in short motions here and there,this also tapers and thins out the ends of the hair so it sits flatter against your own hair,its imortant to avoid having a line in the piece hair,if its all cut the same length.The razor will clogg up but just brush the hair off the blades.
I only do this gradually (and i mean gradually,you don't want to hack of a lot,just a little bit till you get confident with the razor),then i can see how the blend looks when you next wear,then i can do more if necessary.

I do the same thing but with a razor comb.

make sure razor it sharp or you will fray the ends and they will look like Hell quickly

I have noticed that if I get a good cut (blending) that when I wake up in the morning the hair falls nicely into place. If I get a so-so cut I need to spend more time combing my hair (with a broad tooth comb and then a finer tooth comb) in order to get it to lie right. I have a stylist that spends about 20 minutes just blending the hair from the system where it meets my own growing hair. I tip her well for this--it's worth it.
