Course overview

Layered hair is the way in which the hair is cut, which sees the ends of the individual hairs fall to different points relative to one another which gives the impression that the hairs are cut to different lengths.

So, if you were to cut every hair on someone’s head nine inches long, it would appear different lengths because they’re originating at different points on the head.

Graduation, meanwhile, is a type of haircut that includes many different layers. It allows people to keep their hair layers long, whilst still providing hair with a fair amount of body.

This graduation and layering course is designed to allow ambitious hair stylists at the beginning of their careers to develop their skills and understand the fundamental techniques of layering and graduating hair.

With course tutorials from world-class hairdresser and educator, Stacey Broughton, you’ll take your skills to the next level and impress your clients.
