Stacey Broughton's headblock haircut tutorial is a mid square layer, covering an essential training head technique that teaches how to place a square layered shape on a round head utilising corner placement and over-direction. The outline is cut pure and square which places an all important corner around the perimeter.

Mastering this technique will ensure you understand the importance and the control of corner placement, body position, finger angle, over direction and weight distribution on outlines, all of which are essential to the art of hair shapes.
