How is The Helix Cutting System beneficial for me as a stylist?

Our cutting system a scientific study of Cosmetic Physics. The Helix Cutting System is designed scientifically! Though the process can be complicated at first, the schematic in design does the math for you. There is a complicated algebraic equation to explain the perfect angle and torque required to give the effect, making your result completely predictable for your desired result. Carole Lyden Smith, The Helix Hair USA founder, along with the very best shear and metal engineering professionals, cosmetic scientists and beauty professionals have simplified this equation for easy comprehension with our educational program. THE HOW TO instruction is explained completely in your first Phase One class. No matter what your level of experience in cutting! This is advanced cutting at its best puts the artistic design back to the hair professional, giving complete freedom with confidence.

Why can’t I use plain, curved or straight shears that I already have?

The Helix Shear Collection is unlike any other shear. The Torque is the difference! Referencing the previous question; the bottom part of the equation CAN NOT be altered. Meaning, if you take away the “torque” of the Helix honed blade or the curve, you CAN NOT get a Helix result, but rather a Thinning Effect! The Helix Cutting System is focused on cutting “C” shaping into the hair ANYWHERE IN THE DESIGN. Resulting in volume, texture, natural looking wave and curl. The top portion of the equation will differ with each client and hair fabric; which is why no two people will have the same Helix result. THIS IS HUGE FOR THE HAIR PROFESSIONAL THAT ENJOYS THE ART OF INDIVIDUAL, CORRECTIVE AND EFFECTIVE RESULTS IN EACH PERFORMANCE OF THE HELIX CUTTING SYSTEM.

How much are the Helix Shears and is there any financial aid?

How often do I have to get this cut after my first Helix Hair Experience?

THAT’S EASY, This depends on the average growth of the hair, generally 6 – 8 weeks and will vary depending on the hair’s personal performance! Most clients can wait up to 10 or 12 weeks before having a “touch up”. It is not recommended to go more than 12 weeks (crown support will weaken). Consider how a “color service” grows out. The Helix “Out Growth” is similar, the base or new growth must be “Helix’ed” to support the crown area giving lift and volume to the over all design, while the remaining hair provides the direction and texture. The Helix Cutting pattern does not weaken, it grows longer and with the weight of the longer hair the curl formation will stretch or become less effective! Its like a new language: LEARNING TO READ, WRITE AND SPEAK HELIX HAIR!

There is so much to learn and we would love the opportunity to answer all of your questions! For information call 888-MyHelix (694-3549) to speak with a friendly Helix representative today.
