How to Cut Men’s Hair
Cutting men’s hair can be a daunting task, but with the right tools and instructions, it can become an easy and fun hobby. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to cut men’s hair to help you get started.
What You Will Need
- Haircutting scissors
- Clip-on comb attachment
- Hair trimmer
- Wide-toothed comb
- Hair gel or styling product
Step 1: Prepare the Hair
Before you get started, you’ll need to prepare the hair for cutting. Start by washing the hair with shampoo and conditioning it with a deep conditioner. Next, towel-dry the hair and comb it through with a wide-toothed comb to remove any tangles. Part the hair in the middle using the comb and then use a hair gel or styling product to give some texture to the strands.
Step 2: Choose the Length and Style
Before you start cutting, you will need to determine the length and style you would like to achieve. If the individual wants a shorter style, you may want to start with a shorter guard on your clippers and work your way up to the desired length. If they want a longer style, you may want to start with the longest guard to prevent overcutting.
Step 3: Cut the Sides
Using your clippers, you can now start cutting the sides of the head. Take the clippers and begin at the temples and slowly work your way up the sides of the head, keeping the guard parallel to the floor. You can also use a comb attachment to help you get an even length. Once you have finished the sides, you can then move to the back.
Step 4: Cut the Back
For the back of the head, take the clippers and start at the top and slowly work your way down to the bottom. Make sure you are keeping the guard parallel to the floor so that you get an even length. After you are finished, you can now move on to the top.
Step 5: Cut the Top
For the top of the head, you will need to use your scissors. Take the scissors and begin at the front of the head, working your way back towards the crown. Make sure you are keeping the hair in sections and combing the hair in between each snip. Work slowly and steadily until you have achieved the desired length.
Step 6: Blend the Hair
Now that you have cut the different sections of the head, it’s time to blend them together. Take your scissors and begin at the sides and slowly blend the longer top into the shorter sides. Keep combing the hair sections in between each snip to ensure an even blend. Finally, use a trimmer to clean up the nape of the neck and the hairline.
Step 7: Style the Hair
Once you have finished blending, it’s time to style the hair. Start by towel drying the hair and then use a styling product to give it some hold. Comb the product through and then you can use a blow dryer and a brush to style the hair into the desired shape.
Step 8: Clean Up
Once you are finished styling, it’s time for the final step – cleaning up. Use a lint remover to clean up any stray hairs and use a brush to brush away any remaining product. Finally, check the mirror to make sure everything looks good and you are done!
Cutting men’s hair can be a daunting task, but with the right tools and instructions, it can become an easy and enjoyable skill. Follow this guide for the best results and you will be sure to get the perfect haircut every time.
