Duration46 minutes
Skill levelFoundation


Dale Ted Watkins' tutorial is a men's basic/uniform layer with a tailored fringe to achieve a versatile, masculine look. The result is a squeaky clean, preppy, crisp button-down timeless classic, conjuring vivid echoes of the Ivy League movement which inspired generations of designers and iconic fashion hair looks such as the crew cut, mod cuts and the flat top.
