With MK
Duration18 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


MK’s barbering tutorial demonstrates a tapered beard with fading, featuring pointers on head inclination, profile shape, clipper guards and blending from short to long lengths.

The final result is a perfect fade from perimeter to outline to maximise length and create a complimentary silhouette.
