Michelle Thompson finishes her vertical braid and weave preparation on Afro Caribbean hair, with a natural looking blend of disconnected outline hair and internal balance of weave with a curved bob line in the nape and internal graduation using a razor.

The result is a simple, natural and short asymmetric shape that moves freely.

Michelle demonstrates a range of techniques to complete the process, including blunt cutting, club cutting , disconnection, freehand cutting, graduation, round graduation and razoring.
