Razor Cutting is a hair cutting process in which a razor edge is used to cut hair. Razors were used to create the bob style of the early twentieth century. Japanese traditional hair razoring tools, named nihindo have been used for many years. Japanese and Asian hairstylists are commonly experienced with razors, since this is a practical method to create movement in straight hairstyles. The stylist gathers the individual's hair and razors the hairs at an angle, sliding the razor down the hair shaft.
Razor hair-cutting tools include the traditional men's straight-edge razor, the razor-comb (usually with a blade in the top compartment of a hand grip), and the razor-shaper.
Razor-cutting is not used only for choppy haircuts: a blunt but softer edge can be achieved with a straight-edge razor; professional and trendy blunt styles can be created with the added softness and natural texture of a razor-cut.
For home haircutting, a razor-comb is easy to use. Razor combs can be used by men to trim their hair and sideburns, lengthening the interval between visits to the barber.
