Bastian Casaretto's haircutting tutorial features soft graduation, with pivoting triangular layering. Within the tutorial Bastian provides advice on sectioning, elevation, over-direction and disconnection. The final result is an affable, parlour perfect haircut customised with a snuggly fitted back and emancipated lengths to add texture and movement to the interaction of cool and warm shades.
