Duration48 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Stacey Broughton’s uniformed layered haircut is an essential shape to learn. Combining street-chic and the classic images of Audrey Hepburn, the shape uses simple yet precise cutting techniques that can be achieved by hairdressers of any level and covers the essentials of layering for short hair.

Techniques used to achieve the haircut include blunt, club, freehand, point and scissors-over-comb cutting, layering, over-direction, round layering and uniform layering.

The result is a fitted, elegant, soft crop with emphasis on the conical interior which enhances the head shape.
