MK’s barbering tutorial demonstrates a basic pattern featuring pointers on blade control and stability, clippers handling and blade direction, bone structure, outlines and detailing. 

The final result is a repeated basic pattern with curved and straight lines as an enhancement to the chinstrap beard and jaw contour to add a spritz of interest through the haircut.
