November 11, 2013 (RALEIGH, NC) – Oribe Educator, Coby Alcantar was on-hand at Samuel Cole Salon to share her cutting expertise in a class focusing on The Pixie Cut. This timeless cut made famous by celebrities such as, Mia Farrow, Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy is popular once again and is currently worn by Michelle Williams and Emma Watson. Coby is a former Bumble and bumble educator and owns her own salon in Brooklyn called Little Ax.
Stylists were inspired by Coby’s new take on this classic cut.
Coby emphasized combining free form and technical skills by taking circular sections for an uncanny way to customize this cut for each client. This technique delivers a very personalized pixie style and allows stylists to be true to each client’s unique headshape which is extremely important for short hair cuts.
“Oribe’s education team has such a unique way of teaching. Their approach is so out-of-the-box and really pushes our stylists to really think about hair differently. A pixie cut is very classic, so to learn an updated concept that pays homage to the past, while making it so current and relevant is invaluable to our stylists,” said Sara Beard, Assistant Director of Education.
