Stacey Broughton's haircut is a classic uniform layer on a training head. This works with a shape on its base, effectively cutting the hair in equal lengths throughout the cut. This technique teaches you how to follow the head shape and create a shape with no over-direction, as everything is pulled to 90 degrees from the head. This is an essential classic haircut, pure in technique yet adaptable for the modern salon.
