Ivan Rodriguez of New York Barbershop demonstrates a men’s cut with a razor parting. This barbering tutorial features pointers on clippers-over-comb techniques and guards, blending, thinning and the placement and detail of line.  

The final result is an elegantly placed defining neat line, lending a sense of contemporary finesse to time honoured barbering for a playful interchange between tradition and hipster chic.
