With Stacey Broughton
Duration18 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


Stacey Broughton’s haircutting tutorial demonstrates a pure and simple layered commercial shape contrasting disconnected, romantic lengths with a heavy, defining fringe.

Stacey uses a combination of scissors and thinning shears to achieve the look using blunt cutting, freehand and scissors-over-comb together with graduation, layering and disconnection.
