If getting your hair cut sends you into a small panic, then read on as we’ve found just what you’re looking for...
Especially for those of us with long locks, getting your hair cut by someone new can be quite the daunting endeavour. Enter celebrity hairdresser Rossano Ferretti, responsible for the luxurious strands of Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Moss, using his own creation - one of the most innovative hair-cutting techniques to date - The Method. With two of his salons now open in the Middle East, we decided to see what all the fuss was about.
Revolutionising the understanding of hair, The Method is a completely new concept of hair cutting, following the natural fall of the hair rather than manipulating it. This allows stylists to enhance the individual beauty of every person, customising your cut according to preference and hairstyle.
In an era where hair trends change at warp speed, Rossano wanted to strip back beauty to its most natural form, saying, “You shouldn’t have to pay a stylist to ask you what you want. I follow the natural beauty of your hair. I respect everybody, but I know what hair needs. I create beauty around what nature gives you, to give you a hair cut that’s right just for you.”
The Method cut has a way with movement, allowing hair to just fall naturally so you can see the hair’s organic path. Without even sectioning or parting my hair, top Dubai-based Method Director Christina - trained by Rossano’s sister Lorenza - uses her entire upper body to actually snip into my hair and not just off the ends. Using a pair of patented texturizing scissors that cut just 18 per cent of hair instead of the usual 30 per cent, she creates the iconic ‘invisible haircut’; an ultra-curated layering technique that leaves my hair in place all day long and looks like I’ve stepped out of the hairdressers every time I rough blowdry my own hair at home. Who wouldn’t want that?
My noticeably healthier-looking strands now fall into soft, textured waves and look significantly fuller and shinier than they have ever been before. And as well as looking much better, my hair feels great, too. It’s so much softer and more manageable - far from my lank, lifeless locks of before. I’m sold!
