With Tim Hartley
Duration22 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Tim Hartley’s men’s hairdressing tutorial fetures a tight graduated interior shape and a disconnected fringe. Tim provides essential insider information covering placement of disconnection and development of shape. Tim also demonstrates scissors and clippers-over-comb and thinning techniques . 

The final result is a modern reworking of traditional barbering techniques characterised by an anti-head shape profile and a seamless graduated fade. Steeped in heritage this cut facilitates movement and length for a modern archetypal classic.
