Stacey Broughton’s head block basic haircut is a classic uniform layer. This works with a shape on its base, effectively cutting the hair in equal lengths throughout the cut. This technique teaches you how to follow the head shape and create a shape with no over-direction, as everything is pulled to 90 degrees from the head.
Stacey begins with the nape section which forms the perimeter outline and provides the guide for the whole internal shape. Next, Stacey takes a central vertical section, breaking it into small manageable portions. Each section is cut at 90 degrees directly on its base. It is important not to pull backwards or to push forwards, avoiding any over-direction throughout the pivoting section in the back area.
Stacey then works on the side and top areas, continuing to work in manageable portions and angling the hair at 90 degrees. He cuts a line parallel to the head using the previous section in the back as a guide on both sides to the round of the head. Finally Stacey completes the section through to the front hairline and refines the perimeter shape to achieve this essential classic haircut, pure in technique yet adaptable for the modern salon.

    We just started this cut today at Cosmetology a School…just the back so far.  Our teacher taught us to make the Mohawk guideline too! I was wondering what the finished look would be!

    You say, "I would like a Uniform Layer cut please." If your stylist does not know what that is then say, "I would like a 90 degree all over please." If your stylist does not know what you are talking about it may be time to find a new stylist…

    Hi there, you start off really well by explaining the uniform layers but then you go into your own world by just cutting without explaining. Would appreciate if you could redo and explain each step.
