Your routine for getting a haircut usually goes like this: when you arrive at the salon, sit in a chair and inform your stylist of your desired look. But what if there were other options available? Keep reading to discover some cutting techniques that could completely transform your salon experience.
Magazines and photobooks only publish the finest pictures, leaving many stunning shots unused despite being equally as beautiful. These B-cut photos, often known as outtakes, may have just as stunning of an aesthetic as A-cut photos found within publications. B-cuts are often employed in movies to connect two distinct clips of a scene; for instance, when someone starts running back to throw a punch in Clip A and follows through in Clip B from another perspective, this is known as an action cut. Additionally, B-cuts may add special visual effects, such as slow-motion effects or extra bright scenes.
C-shaped layers are an updated version of “the Rachel” but with more low maintenance requirements. C-shaped layers keep face-framing layers soft and lightweight, suitable for most facial shapes. An excellent option for women with thick hair, it helps lighten up their appearance by lifting weight from the front and simplifying volume styling. Furthermore, this cut accentuates the bangs’ shape to frame their faces beautifully. Curly hair works exceptionally well when styled into c-shaped layers; they help frame the face while emphasizing its natural bouncy texture. Use an effective diffuser to encourage those longer face-framing layers to flick beautifully toward your face and frame it.
The D Cut, featuring Marie Marcelle, aka D, is an irresistibly entertaining piece this Pride season. Marie shows us all that all it takes to live an extraordinary life is one cut away.

FREITAG has always stood for individualism as sustainable Swiss bag makers. Each of its over 300,000 bags produced annually is distinctive. To further emphasize this characteristic, the company has introduced an online customization tool that enables customers to design their unique messenger bag – and have it shipped to their homes! DEPT employee Severin Klaus created F-Cut for FREITAG 20 years ago as his diploma thesis. For this redesign project, together with bag and UX designers and logisticians, he revived it after an extended hiatus, giving birth to a modern web application controlled via API interfaces and operating under the MACH principle: Microservices, Cloud-native Headless.
Accurate three-dimensional reconstruction of neuron morphologies is key for classification and circuitry mapping. G-Cut is a graph partition algorithm that utilizes biological statistics and graph theory to rapidly segment individual neurons with detailed neuronal morphologies from densely interspersed neuron clusters. Utilizing standard SWC file formats as input, G-Cut outshone the state-of-the-art neuron tracing algorithms APP2 in Vaa3D24 and GTree25 on various datasets, including CLARITY processed tissues and Golgi-labeled brain sections – outperforming state-of-the-art neuron tracing algorithms APP2 in Vaa3D24 and GTree25 on complex datasets such as CLARITY processed tissues and Golgi labeled brain sections. G-Cut differs from other methods by treating the input as an undirected graph with multiple possible branches to soma assignment options (nm) per independent unit, then searching for combinations that maximize the global fitness of the graph.
Jump cuts are meant to startle audiences and quicken time for cinematic effect, while J-cuts offer a smoother transition between scenes while emphasizing key reactionary moments. This technique is especially helpful in horror and comedy films focusing on set-ups and punchlines. As its name implies, this edit takes shape from its appearance in your editing timeline, with video from Clip 1 sitting atop and audio from Clip 2 below forming a ‘J’ shape. These split edits may also be used when scripts call for pre-lap dialogue in which a character responds before visual changes take effect. As in 1992’s Lethal Weapon 3, in one iconic scene from Lethal Weapon 3, both Riggs and Murtaugh begin talking before the scene shifts to show them in full view.
