Stacey Broughton’s creative haircut is a short graduated crop full of technique, discipline and a well worked disconnected L-shaped panel. The end result is a short and elegant, weightless graduated shape with a versatile sweeping fringe. This is a truly beautiful and versatile cut, that can be dressed up, down and all around.

Stacey demonstrates a variety of techniques to create this women’s short haircut including blunt, point freehand and scissors-over-comb cutting, disconnection, graduation, layering, over-direction, round graduation and tapering.
