The Channel Haircut for Natural Curl

With Lee Stafford
Duration18 minutes
Skill levelAdvanced


Lee Stafford’s haircutting video is The Channel. Soft, understated and unique, it works equally well on all hair - wavy, straight, thick or fine - breaking the shape beautifully and allowing the hair to be light and free, and as here is particularly effective on curly hair. Lee uses a combination of blunt and club cutting, using disconnection, elevation and over-direction and building on square layering. The result is a light and free curly haircut that can easily incorporated into your salon essentials.
