This is a technique for cutting short hair. It is used mostly for men’s haircuts. Channelling creates movement and direction in a haircut by making channels which separate the hair. You will achieve best results with this technique if you use it on dry hair. Place two fingers on the client’s scalp, one finger-width apart. Using your other hand, put your scissors flat on the scalp, between your two fingers, and cut.
