What You'll Need
Your actual Hair or Mannequin Head with Hair
1. If you just want to thin your hair out, take out the sections of your hair that you want to thin. If the section is really thick then you may razor comb your hair from the root up. If the hair is thin, you will want to start from the middle of the hair and work your way down.
2. To layer the hair, you also want to do this is sections. Only with this, you want to concentrate more on the ends of the hair. Use the razor comb and comb downwards. Start in the front of your hair making sure the front of your hair is shorter than the back for perfect layers.
3. To give your hair a more choppy look, use the razor comb in whatever places you like alternating between upward and downward motions. Be sure to know what type of style you want on your hair so that you know which motion you should use on your hair with the razor comb, or else you risk making a mistake.
