This technique helps to create soft and seamless layers that blend effortlessly into the rest of the hair. By using the stroking technique with the FSE Hybrid Elite Dry Cutting Scissor, hairstylists can achieve precise and controlled layering while maintaining the hair's integrity and natural movement.

Face-framing layers are a versatile choice for clients of all ages and hair types. These layers can accentuate certain facial features, such as the cheekbones or jawline, and add softness and depth to the overall hairstyle. Whether someone wants to add volume to fine hair, remove bulk from thick hair, or simply refresh their look, face-framing layers can be customized to meet their individual needs.

When executed with expertise and the right tools, face-framing layers can transform a hairstyle, creating a flattering and dynamic look. The FSE Hybrid Elite Dry Cutting Scissor, paired with the stroking technique, allows hairstylists to achieve seamless and personalized face-framing layers that enhance their clients' natural beauty.
