COMMERCIAL LONG LAYERED SHAPE
Stacey Broughton’s salon basic tutorial is a commercial long layered technique. Stacey demonstrates two finished outcomes for this look – the first is a commercial finish ideal for both students and the salon, and the second a more creative finish for those seeking a stronger look.Stacey begins with a vertical section in the back, slightly off-centre in line with the parting from crown to nape. From this section he pivots subsequent sections on both sides of the head cutting a high square shape. The elevation is dependant on the desired length, the amount of weight required on the perimeter and the hair texture and quality. Stacey continues with parallel sections towards the front hairline so the internal shape becomes progressively longer towards the front, due to the over-direction. Stacey places a perimeter shape in the front working with the parting and the internal layering to produce a commercial, salon oriented finish.For the second option, Stacey demonstrates a stronger feel by working a clean defined edge following the contours of the face. The final result is a sleek, commercial long layered shape with a strong angled jaw line for a bolder alternative option.

GRADUATED LAYERED SHAPE
Stacey Broughton’s salon basic haircut is a a graduated layered shape working with vertical sections with a rounded layered light interior over the crown. The haircut begins by working with vertical sections on the underneath, pulling the hair out to 45 degrees to the head shape and cutting a clean line before cross checking horizontally. Curved sections through the top are elevated to 45 degrees and using his previous underneath section as a guide pull the hair back and continue the graduated line from shorter to longer. This will maintain length in the front area.
The perimeter shape is cut with a clean edge following the jawline using a pointing technique to half way on the ear, before pivoting down into the outline in the back. The back outline is then carved with a curved edge.
The final result is a tilt away from traditional graduation, employing salon speed vertical sections for a light modern internal shape which maximises a steep angle for optimum suitability and graceful movement.
