Duration47 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Stacey Broughton’s haircut tutorial revisits his Vidal Sassoon heritage to bring you the graduated stepped bob. Inspired by the box bob, Stacey draws from his vast catalogue to guide you through this timeless old school classic haircut with precision and technique. The result is a purist and contemporary take on an old school technique, rich in tradition and classicism.

Within the hairdressing tutorial Stacey demonstrates a combination of blunt cutting, club cutting, disconnection, freehand cutting, graduation, over-direction, point cutting, scissors-over-comb, sectioning and square lines.
