Short Combination of Graduation, Layering and Disconnection

With Alexander Dinter
Duration31 minutes
Skill levelAdvanced


Alexander Dinter’s tutorial is a short symmetric haircut with graduation through the back and layering through the top.

The finished look is a graduated shape beautifully contoured, with a softened fringe area for a super feminine finish. The longer disconnected area facilitates a smooth swing through one side which can be dressed in a variety of styles to accessorise the look for a living sculptured result.
