Stacey Broughton's head block haircut is a simple A-Line long layered shape on a training head, starting with the interior shape first and working vertically from front hairline to nape area. Watch the positioning of body, fingers and hair sections with regard to direction and over-direction to create this soft, fluid and light shape. Understanding this will lead to a greater understanding of layering.
