Graduated Step Haircut Tutorial

With Stacey Broughton
Duration30 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Stacey Broughton’s men’s haircutting tutorial is a modern and up-to-date version of the step haircut, full of technical shading and discipline. A true youthful salon winner resulting in a versatile graduated shape offering a strong variant against a softer opposite option with a hint of tailored texture through the top.

Within this barbering video, Stacey uses and demonstrates a number of techniques such as blow drying, scissors and clippers-over-comb, club, point, freehand and blunt cutting, disconnection, graduation, layering,  over-direction, shading, square layering, tapering and texturizing.

Along with the video, members can also download and print our step by step guide that covers the whole process of the men’s graduated step haircut.
