New Barbering DVD

We have just published our brand New Barbering DVD titled “Multi-Cutltural Barbering Volume 1

In today’s multi-cultural society it is more important than ever for barbers to be able to cut all types, textures, and styles of hair. The main focus of the multi-cultural barbering DVDs is to train barbers and cosmetologists alike on men’s hairstyles and barbering techniques necessary to appeal to and capitalize on a diverse clientele.

This DVD will teach you how to cut three different men’s hairstyles on three different textures of hair. You will be learn different barbering techniques including scissor over fingers, scissor over comb, clipper over comb, fading, tapering, and freehand clipper cutting. With this knowledge you will be a much more well rounded barber and your services will be in demand for years to come.

Medium Fade with Textured Top:

Most young men and young adults today are wearing some variation of this hairstyle. It is easy to manage and keep looking good throughout the day because the style is somewhat messy on top. As always, the fade must be precise and not too high to keep a balanced looking men’s haircut. The clean tapered outline will really make the haircut shape stand out.

Long Men’s Layered Haircut:

One of the challenges a lot of barbers face is cutting longer men’s hair. With today’s multitude of styles long hair is just as popular as short hair. With that being said one of the things cosmetologists struggle with is giving a long men’s haircut while maintaining a masculine look. This particular haircutting video and lesson plan is ideal for both professions. The client who wears this type of hairstyle is a wash and wear type of guy and does not want to spend a lot of time if any styling it.

Dark Caesar with Taper:

The Dark Caesar haircut is one of the most popular haircuts for textured hair. The Dark Caesar with waves and low taper requires an even higher skill level. Low fades and tapers with longer hairstyles are more difficult because there is a smaller area to fade the hair in. To finish off the hairstyle the correctly products and hair styling tools need to be used to bring out the wave pattern which will also make the low taper or low fade stand out more.
