With Tim Hartley
Duration28 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


In this tutorial Tim Hartley demonstrates flat graduation with disconnection, featuring pointers on blending natural and relaxed textures, weight lines, maximising internal lengths and creating even short graduation. 

The final result is a graphic, elegant profile to expose and frame the natural contours of the brow and cheek, with conical extended lengths through the top for an expressive anti head shape form.
