Learn how to cut a flat top hairstyle in the following video and step by step guide. Also, learn how to finish off the cut with the correct styling products to keep the cut looking consistent all day.
Start on the right hand side. Use the 3 ½ (3/8”) blade on the detachable blade clipper. Using the fading technique run the clipper up the side of the head to the temple area. Take an imaginary line parallel to the head straight up from the round of the head until you run out of hair. This will avoid leaving a line that needs to be blended out. Make sure not to follow the contour of the head at the parietal area.
Work the clipper around the head until you get to the back. Run the clipper up to the crown and round it off slightly. Even though this haircut is square in shape the back needs to be rounded off slightly for proper balance.
After the back continue on around the opposite side as in step 3.
Next, blend the sides and back to the top. Even though the top has not been cut yet the corners need the square look from a front and back view. It will be much easier to cut the top flat when there is less hair to work with. Use the clipper over comb technique and either a 1 or 1 ½ blade depending on the thickness of the hair. U Hold the comb parallel to the head and take an imaginary line straight up in the air until you run out of hair to cut.
Move on to the semi-finish. Use adjustable clipper starting in the longest setting working down to the shortest setting.
Finish the taper with the adjustable clipper working down from the longest to shortest setting.
Complete the finish with the t-trimmer using it correctly as demonstrated in tools of the trade lessons.
After these steps are completed move on to the top. Blow dry the top with a small amount of alcohol free Zorian of New York firm hold styling gel to get an even shape to work with.
Using the large flat top comb and a clipper over comb technique with the 1 blade. Begin in the front and work towards the back. Keep the comb parallel with the floor and comb through the first section in the center. Very small sections will be needed to avoid clipper marks or lines. Move the comb very slowly toward the back angling the comb slightly downward to meet the guide from the sides and back zone.
Move to either the right or left side of the center section and repeat the process. Make sure the center guide and previous guide are visible. This will help to keep the correct speed and sectioning with the comb. Take as many sections as necessary to meet the guide on the sides.
Repeat the above step on opposite side.
When rough cut is complete re-dry the hair with more product for the fine-tuning. Check from every angle in both the wall and hand mirrors.
Touch up any areas that need it.
Lastly, use a fingertip portion of the Zorian Of New York shaping paste for a strong hold and matte finish to hold this difficult growth pattern in place all day. (Optional: Spray with Zorian Of New York finish spray for a non sticky, quick dry finish for added hold)

The hard part is a very popular hairstyle for all ages. The video below demonstrates the children’s hair part haircut styled with pomade.
1. For best results start by applying a very small amount of Zorian of New York firm hold gel to the hair while it is slightly damp.
2. Rub the gel thoroughly through the hair down to the roots.
3. Use a hair dryer to dry the hair straight forward, to the side, and then back. This will create the shape.
4. Next, apply the water soluble Zorian of New York Classic Pomade. Emulsify completely in your hands and then apply through your hair.
5. Comb the hair forward, to the side, and the up and back in the front. This will create the classic hard part look that will stay in place with a high shine all day.
For a looser look use a wide tooth comb or pick. For a tighter cleaner look use a comb with the teeth close together and comb the hair again the same as before after the wide tooth comb or pick is used.

For thick hair follow up with the thinning shear over comb technique. Next, fade the sides with a 3 ½ metal blade down to a 1 ½ blade. Keep the fade below the temples. Touch up the blend with the clipper over comb technique using a 1 ½ blade for a more blended cut. Fade out the neckline with an adjustable clipper starting in the longest setting down to the shortest and finish off with an outliner.
