Stacey Broughton's haircut is a variation of a long A-line shape. Stacey begins by graduating the internal area before cutting a soft pointed outline. This tutorial teaches graduation, over-direction and the importance of finger and body positioning in the placement of the perimeter line. The inclusion of freehand techniques softens and loosens this contemporary salon friendly shape.
