Overview

Dale Ted Watkins presents part one of a two part lecture featuring scissors and clippers-over-comb techniques. Over-comb techniques are used in men’s and women’s cutting but are mainly associated with classic barbering.

Over-comb techniques can be used as a graduation method, to create a uniform layer or to produce a square shape. They are often used  to blend from very short areas into cut areas, for example a bald fade. Used when the hair is too short to be held in the fingers, over-comb techniques are a methodical sequence with the scissors or clippers and comb used continuously.

This video also features contributions from Stelios Chondros and Chris Foster.
