Skill levelFoundation


Stacey Broughton’s classic halo haircut is a suitable, balanced, short-length rounded shape, which embraces texture and colour, and is compliant with a modern lifestyle. Stacey’s updated this Vidal Sassoon classic haircut for today's demanding salon clients, but maintains the classic 1960s and 1970s shape, with added texture and movement for a fun and youthful interpretation.

Within this hairdressing video Stacey demonstrates the essential techniques to achieve the halo haircut, including sectioning, blow drying, blunt, point and club cutting, creating movement, volume and texture; using elevation, graduation and over-direction, and cutting round lines.

The finished result is a balanced, rounded shape suitable for a range of face types; which embraces texture and colour and is perfectly compatible with a modern lifestyle.
