Want to learn traditional barbering and facial grooming techniques from the best in the business? Then don’t miss this two part tutorial.
First up, Erika Vera of New York Barbershop demonstrates a traditional partial beard with clippers, clipper fade and razors. Covering everything from health and safety to body and clipper position and contouring, Erika focuses on both client comfort and technique.
Taking you through the steps to achieving a partial beard, Erika also covers how to prepare the outline under the jawline for the shaving portion of the service – and demonstrates how to provide an outline shave.
Taking charge of the second half of the tutorial, MK demonstrates the clipper techniques you’ll need to achieve a lip-line moustache – including demonstrating how to use tapping motions and the pivot finger to control the pressure and angle of the blade.
The final result? A slim moustache following the contours of the lip to accentuate the shape of the mouth.
