Behind the Chair: The Skin Fade Haircut from Valjean Guerra

Posted by Michael James on

Last week, we met up with pro groomer Valjean Guerra of Harlem's own Cathedra, a private barbering service in New York City that promises their clients 'the royal treatment'. He took us behind the scenes of the skin fade haircut for a client. As a smooth mix of soulful classics and contemporary hip-hop buzzed through the speakers, he covered everything from how he gets the perfect blend (which he calls the essence of the haircut) to the sharpest line up to put it all together. He finished the look with our Sleek Water pomade to add medium hold, definition, and a natural shine to his waves. Check out the quick walk-through in the video below.
