Again with this video, I was working on the camera angles and using the tripod on the wheels. I'm using the 1.2mm blade on the Andis clippers.

This haircut is disconnected on both sides but blended at the back, at the time of making this video I was experimenting on cameras and angles and ways of holding the camera to get the best look to learn from, I wanted to try and give the viewer the same angle as I have.

I have broken down the full-length haircut into 6 sections so anyone can concentrate on the part they need at the time. This is part 3 Removing the weight after the setting the grade length. I find that taking out this bulk area and connecting to the top makes the haircut so much easier and quicker too. After taking out the weight you can easily see the shape when cutting the top and you'll know your sections are at the right angle to connect the haircut.

It's important to keep the sections close together here. In this video you will see we take 10-12 sections from the fringe to the crown in the centre of the head and 12-16 on each side. This is so we connect all the sections together, reduce the possibility of section lines and save time on cross-checking the haircut. Having said that I would recommend cross-checking every cut until your confident with this cutting technique.

In this video I have already done a grade 2 Trimmed on top, now I'm going to put in a fade or taper just taking it down to zero with the clippers. The idea behind this video is to show the proses of reducing the length using the clippers. I would recommend using the clippers when the hair is short like this but as seen in the other videos, when removing the bulk I find clipper over comb is best.

I have broken down the full-length haircut into 6 sections so anyone can concentrate on the part they need at the time. This is part 2 Clipper work. In this video I use the Andis clippers to set the length of the hair on the back and sides, I'm using a great 2 or 6mm clipper blade. I find these blades better than the plastic guards as they have more teeth and pick up more hair, this reduces the section lines you can get from most plastic guards, it also means the clipper work is quicker as your not going over the same part again and again.

This video was shot in 2013 on an iPhone 5. Here I'm trying to show how following a routine with every cut (stages) can help you start and finish each part to create a perfect haircut. Although this video is for beginners it has also been helpful to many Barbers over the years it's been on youtube. I hope it can help here too.

I have broken down the full-length haircut into 6 sections so anyone can concentrate on the part they need at the time. This is part 1, putting the gown properly on a client. OK so this could be the most uninteresting part of this set but it's still important to get it right and I've seen many barbers not have the right tension on the neck area and send hair right down the client's neck. Not good for business. Sometimes it's the little things that really make the visit special.

Hi, I'm just uploading my videos to here that are on YouTube. They were taken when I owned my own shops from 2007-2014 in the UK. After that, I opened my own shops in Tasmania and spent 4 years there and have now moved back to the UK
