Perfect the men’s basic layer with Dale Ted Watkins

Get to grips with Sid Sottung’s asymmetric bald fade
Our second featured tutorial is for all you advanced men’s haircutting specialists. It’s time to take your talents to a higher place with the asymmetric bald fade, taught by Sid Sottung.
You’ll create a pure blend from skin to hair throughout the head shape using a straight razor and clipper attachments, ending up with a fine blend from skin to apex, using a variety of barbering techniques with a defining bespoke line. Stunning!
Master the square graduation with Tim Hartley
The square graduation with disconnected fringe is a barbering classic with a modern twist – ideal for those at an intermediate level.
In our third tutorial, Tim Hartley demonstrates placement of disconnection along with development of shape – he also shows you scissor-over-comb and thinning techniques. Creating movement and length, you’ll delight your male clients with this modern reworking of a classic style.
Combine graduation, layering and disconnection with Jean Baptiste Mazella
We won’t pretend this one’s a walk in the park! But if you’re an ambitious cutter of men’s hair with skill and experience, then we’ve got a treat in store with this Jean Baptiste Mazella tutorial.
Combining flat graduation with layering and disconnection through the parting, Jean Baptiste demonstrates how to create an asymmetric groomed interior with gorgeously romantic, disconnected foppish tendrils! Clients (and their other halves!) will go wild for it!
