Creator Of The First Scientifically Based Haircutting Method



Translated from french to english, non edited.

The possible, but somewhat primitive reasons why someone would give a haircut on wet hair rather than dry hair could be the following :

a: hygiene

b: At list a low level of understanding some of the advantages for giving a haircut on wet hair, which is  including the following:

1: Better controllability of the individual organization of hair-strands to be cut, as well as the manipulation of the hair-mass it self.

2: Better maneuverability of the individual organization of  hair-strands to be cut, as well as the hair-mass it self.

3: A clear tendency to understand the advantages of giving  a haircut on wet hair will extend the magnitude of haircut design conception.

However, and as in general, in today’s world, an individual acting as professional giving dry-haircuts categorized as simple or complex haircut (as qualified under the rules of orthocouralogy) is as in general seen as someone limiting himself of herself to higher technical performance delivery.

That person may without knowing it, limit himself or herself to higher technical performances even not at the level of orthocouralogy.

Artistic decision are definitively influenced by the level of professional expertise.

A person acting as a professional giving haircuts on dry hair-masses is usually operating under “visual haircutting procedure”, instead of operating under  “logical haircutting systems and procedure” which is included in the orthocouralogy program.

Giving dry haircuts (shape and infrastructure) under visual haircutting procedure is mainly due to a lac in related intellectual  and technical knowledges in haircutting systems and procedures. The professional is often operating on a haircutting procedure based on “secondary haircutting effect” as well as operating in “non-precision systems and procedure”.

Operations under the orthocouralogy’ rules, systems, and procedures will provide : (wet vs dry)

a: hygiene

b: max-controllability

c: max-maneuverability

d: operations at max-accuracy

e: no limitation in haircut designs

f:  an increase in creativity

g: gain of time: For a given haircut design using the same method, assuming the same                 level of proficiency, specific knowledge, and technical skills, less time will be required to give a wait-haircut vs dry-haircut.

In today’s world, the majority of haircut designs would require an excessive amount of time when given on dry hair (for same qualities), and could be even unnecessarily difficult.

h: The excess of time available could be seen as a safety margin for giving, fixing, and adjusting, a haircut. Excess of time available for giving a haircut could also reduce stress level which could be used to contribute for an increase in quality workmanship performances, and  human psychological behavior.

I: Dry hair are physically harder to cut than wait hair. Water has that physical property to soften the hair, which ones will be easier to cut. Scissors blades cutting performance will be increased on wait hair.

i: Wait hair are not as hard to cut, therefore softer, which will easier on the scissors blades. Required input and out put forces will be less for the same amount of hair-strands wet versus dry to be cut at once.

j: Since most likely more than the minimum amount of hair-   strands  required are going to be  cut per cutting (example: as in orthocouralogy’s pyramid & prisms), when giving a haircut, the sliding of hair-strands not directly in contact with the blades when squeezed between scissors blades  will be reduced when wet instead of dry. That is an other    precision reason  why haircutting precision and accuracy could be increased when giving a wet haircut (or wet-cut). It should be noted that in both case, wet or dry-cut, sliding        effect could exist. However, for the same quantity of hair-strands  using the same scissors, sliding effect will be less  when cut wet, versus dry. That is adding to the reasons why haircutting in small increment  when exercising haircutting under the rules of orthocouralogy is highly recommended.

k: The (P.G) method or orthocouralogy requires the organization of hair-strands being pooled strait or as strait as possible in specific configuration before being cut,   section after section within a sequencing system. When released from induced tension, the group of hair-strands {that could be organized in (PG pyramid(s), and PG prism (s)} could return into a new natural position and natural  physical state (in wait condition). Note that hair being blown dry strait to be cut dry, are more difficult to anticipate about their natural reaction, if the hair-mass treated is other than naturally strait, or close to be straight.

In other words, a hair-mass or portion of it, that is cut after being blown dried straight and not allowed to return (with   some flexibility) to its natural state, will present more difficulty to be accessed  about its natural states and shapes. Wait-haircutting input and output is noticeably  different than dry haircutting input  and output. That is true regarding the category of hair-mass being treated. Cause and effect could be drastically different, as mush as action and reaction.

l:  An hair-mass  has the physical properties to be modified temporally when blown using a brush or the equivalent, as well as heat from an hair-dryer or other source of heat, or as an other example, flat ironed. The hair will become smoother, shiner, harder when cold, slipperier or silkier, which is participating to be less controllable and less maneuverable than wet hair when being cut. Hair have the property to be modified, and that is an important factor to consider.

m:  The P.G method (orthocouralogy) in its general requires a given amount of hair strands being pooled strait  in a specific configuration , section after section within a specific procedure and sequencing system. When released from induced tension , the hair strands could return into a natural position and state under wait condition (since as in general the haircut is given wait) which makes it easier to anticipate the stat on an hair-mass when naturally dried. On the other end, hair being blown dry strait are more  difficult to anticipate with regards to their natural reaction .

n: Over all, and as in general, someone giving simple or complex haircuts (as defined in the orthocouralogy’s program), and basing is career on dry haircutting technic, is   someone not only imposing limitations on performances, but most likely lacking in knowledges in logical systems and procedures for giving a haircut. As in general, that person relies on visual-haircutting rather than true logical building procedures. That person usually has no knowledge or not a clear understanding of the advantages using more advanced methods.

Additionally, people giving haircuts on dry hair will have trouble to:

1: to record a haircut design

2: to repeat a haircut design

3: to transmit a haircut design

o: Reference guide lines, and line of cut are also more difficult to follow and define when giving a haircut on dry hair. That is the case even if the haircut is given after the hair-mass has been blown straight.

p:  People with the need of proceeding in dry-haircutting after blowing an hair-mass straight, have tendency to concentrate on the outer shape of the haircut design instead of its infrastructure. Even though those people usually have a clear idea  about the desired haircut design’s outer shape, they proceed intuitively instead of logically to give that shape. Missing on building technical conceptions, systems and procedures, are some of the justifying reasons why intuition rather than logical procedures are used.  As a typical example, people giving haircuts on dry hair after being blown  straight have tendency to restrain them-self at giving haircut designs qualified as ” shags”

As in general, and within limitation, barber’s haircut designs of very short stile, and usually best when given on dry hair. That is true when the total hair-mass or portion of it about to be treated will be at a length impossible or to difficult or impossible  to hold between fingers.

In other words (terms and expression from the orthocouralogy program)  and as in general: When a PG pyramid , and or a PG prism is not possible to be formed, it may be advantageous or easier to give a cut to a portion or the total hair-mass as necessary,

q: Haircutting on dry hair-masse could lead to boredom. Haircutting on dry hair is a limiting procedure, which will tend to greatly reduce haircutting at higher technical level. Higher technical difficulties will be encountered, and the professional will tend to impose himself herself limitation in artistic ideas and building conception without always     being aware about it. Ultimately, both, the person giving the haircut and the receiver could be unsatisfied and frustrated. Eventually, the technical difficulty and     limitations when giving a dry-cut could lead to shorten the lifetime of a professional career. Therefore. trying to explore haircutting requiring higher special knowledge and technical level could also and  easily lead to resignation due to those limitations and difficulties.

Required time for giving a haircut is different when proceeding dry versus wet at equal level of knowledge, practical skills and experience. For the same haircut design more time will be required when giving that haircut on dry hair-mass versus wet.

Excess of time available for giving a haircut or the time a professional is willing to give is an asset for giving the same wet or dry haircut. Since haircutting at best performance and quality level is reached much earlier when haircutting wet rather than dry, the excess of time available a professional is willing to give for haircutting could become a major asset for operations toward perfection. Usable time, is the time you allowed for giving a haircut. In order to perform at best quality level, operation under known limitations should not be performed.   Experience, dexterity, speed are also participating factor for best performances.

r: The line of cut concept part of the verification procedure (during and after the haircut is given) will be more difficult to define accurately, and or could not be of primary support for verification procedure. In other words, a line of cut may not fulfill its role at max capacity during dry haircutting procedure.
