Tim Hartley demonstrates a creative round graduated shape with an undercut on African Type 4 hair. Tim provides advice on outline shape, layering, over-direction and clipper work. 

The final haircut is a story of extremes with an undercurrent of indigenous North American tribes, New Romanticism and rebellion, infused with glamour and geometry.
