Dry Cutting

If you want the perfect hair styling experience, it might be time to consider dry cutting. The typical salon experience involves colour, wash, cut, blow wave. But did you know that there’s another option? Your hair doesn’t need to be wet to be styled, in fact, there are a number of advantages to having your hair cut and styled while dry.


Please read our curl checklist to learn a little about what to expect when you have a curly haircut at Delilah! 🙂

Advantages of Dry Cutting

Dry hair cutting offers a whole range of benefits of which you may not be aware:

  • Hair, especially curly or wavy hair, looks entirely different when it is wet. When you cut curly or wavy hair wet, there is a certain amount of guesswork involved. For example, when hair curls up it may be a lot shorter, or more voluminous and the stylist has to try and account for this. If you opt for a dry cut, your stylist can work with your hair in its natural state.
  • Dry hair cutting gives you control throughout the styling experience. The hairdresser is working with a more realistic depiction of your hair, and so are you. As the stylists chops and changes your hair, you can make suggestions because you are working with a real picture of how your hair will look post-style.
  • Wet hair can be deceptive. Natural features, such as cowlicks, lighter areas and waves. When your hair is dry, it will show all its natural features. If these features are visible, your stylist can work with, and around them.
  • Fragile and thinning hair is actually more fragile when it is wet. Styling involves a lot of brushing and pulling, so if you have brittle hair, it can cause quite a bit of damage. Your hair is strongest when it is dry, so it if you opt for a dry cut you will end up losing less hair.
  • As a client, you will appreciate the fact that the way your hair looks when the cut is finished is how it will look the next day. Even after a blow wave, your hair will settle a little differently the next day. However, with a dry cut, there are no next day surprises.
