Description

Description: 

By using the Palm-to-Palm technique during cutting, you reduce the load on the hands, arms, shoulders and back. The Palm-to-Palm technique is most commonly used during hairdressing on the front, sides and back hairs. The two palms face each other during cutting. It is not a mandatory professional technique but an example of a technique that reduces the load.
