Short Clipper Cut – Part 2

This short clipper cut is a modern version of the side part. This hairstyle is generally shorter on the sides with a longer top. It is also a very versatile haircut which can be styled in many different ways. This haircut can also be referred to as a short pompadour as well. The most common ways this haircut is styled:

1. Parted to the side with a wet look and some height in the front

2. Parted to the side with a messy dry finish and some height in the front.

Short Clipper Cut – Part 2

1. Use a detachable blade clipper with a number one blade. This clipper and blade combination will remove a large amount of hair with ease. Also use a large clipper comb to control the hair. Start in the right side burn area and use the clipper over comb technique. Cut to but not into the previous guide from the round of the head section.

2. Cut one panel at a time and work your way around the head. Make sure to move the comb slow so you don’t miss any sections. The slower you move the comb the more blended the haircut will be.

3. Dip the comb down slightly in the back to allow for the crown. This will keep the crown length longer so it does not stand up.

4. Complete the above steps to the left side burn and temple area.

Short Clipper Cut – Part 1

1. Cut the top section using a thinning shear over fingers technique. The hair is very thick so it needs to be thinned out and cut at the same time.

2. Start with a center guide. Hold your fingers parallel to the floor and  close the thinning shear three times starting halfway down the shaft of the hair. Use the first cut as your traveling guide and work your way back to the pivot.

3. Repeat step 2 on the right side of your center guide.

4. Repeat step 2 on the left side of your center guide.

5. Cut the front of the hair in the same manner with the thinning shears. Hold your fingers parallel to the forehead instead of parallel to the floor. This will remove thickness and length at the same time.

6. Start in the crown or pivot area and repeat step 5 to the right temple. Hold your fingers parallel to the top part of the round of the head or occipital and parietal areas.

7. Repeat step 7 to the left temple.

Medium Fade Haircut

Medium Fade HaircutWe are very excited to release our newest video: The Medium Fade Haircut with a longer textured top. Anytime you are leaving a longer top and cutting the sides very close it can be very challenging. Some of the important things to remember are not to fade higher than the widest point of the head and make sure the blending area is never higher than the front length. These are the two most important instructions in providing a balanced medium fade or any fade for that matter.
