Cutting men's hair at home can be a cost-effective and convenient option. Here are some tips to help you achieve a professional-looking result using a hair clipper:
Gather the right tools: In addition to a hair clipper, you will also need a comb, scissors, and a cape to cover your client's clothing.
Prepare the hair: Before cutting, make sure the hair is clean and dry. If the hair is very long, comb it and trim any split ends with scissors
.Choose the right guard: Hair clippers come with various guard sizes that determine the length of the cut. Start with a longer guard and gradually move to a shorter one for a more precise trim.
Start with the sides: Begin by cutting the sides, moving the clipper from the neck upward to the temples. Start with a longer guard and gradually move to a shorter one to achieve the desired length.
Move to the top: Once the sides are trimmed, move to the top of the head and use the clipper to blend the sides into the top.
Start with a longer guard and work your way to a shorter one, if desired.
Trim the back: Turn the client around and trim the back of the head, working from the neck upward.
Clean up the neckline: Use scissors or a clipper without a guard to define the neckline. Style as desired: After the cut is complete, use a comb and some hair product to style the hair as desired.
By following these tips, you can achieve a professional-looking haircut using a hair clipper at home. However, keep in mind that cutting hair is a skill that takes practice, so be patient and don't be afraid to ask for help if needed.
Good luck and see you next time!
