Tim Hartley’s hair cutting tutorial demonstrates a multi-textured shape on type 4 hair, with a graduated A-line perimeter and loose layers. Within the video Tim provides pointers on disconnection, elevation, over-direction and enhancing afro texture. 

The final result is versatile, augmented lengths supported by a potent internal structure, which gives credence and animation to the bold colour palette.
