How To Cut The Traditional Men’s Haircut

Learning how to cut the traditional men’s haircut will also teach you the basics of blending. Blending shorter sides to a longer top with a tapered outline will be the foundation for the majority of the short to medium length men’s haircuts you will provide in your career. Master this traditional haircut and you will be on your way to longterm success.

How To Cut The Traditional Men’s Haircut:

  1. Start on the top section in the center. Use the scissor over comb or scissor over fingers technique and start with a center section. Keeping the comb parallel to the floor move it slowly toward the crown with the proper angle so the hair will be left long enough not to stick up.
  2. Repeat step 1 on the right and left sides of the center section. You will have a center guide and a previous guide in the comb. If there is any recession in the corners make sure to over direct the hair to the point of the recession.
  3. Blend the round of the head section to the top section. You can use either scissor over comb or scissor over fingers depending on the length of the hair. Start in the back or crown area and take a section in the center with your fingers or comb positioned parallel to the head. Take small sections and work to the right side and then back to the center and work to the left.
  4. Cut the sides and back section. Use the blade on skin technique with the 3 ¾ (½”) blade on the detachable blade clipper. Start at the right sideburn and run the clipper up the side of the head slowly.
  5. Finish the blend if needed from the sides and back to the round of the head section. Use the 1 ½ (1/8”) blade on the detachable blade clipper and the clipper comb.
  6. Start the semi-finish with the detachable blade clipper and the 1 ½ blade. Use a scooping motion around the outline of the haircut with the tip of the blade.
  7. Continue the semi finish with the adjustable clipper in the open position using the blade on skin technique. Follow this with the clipper blade in the halfway open position and then the closed position.
  8. Complete the finish. Use the t-trimmer to edge off the side burn area and clean up around the ears. Make the diagonal line on the neck behind the ear. Leave the line out as far as possible. Do not go in off the natural hairline and cut into the taper.
  9. Use an upward shaving motion to clean up the back of the neck. The taper is already complete so it is extremely important not to get anywhere near the hairline. Stop ½ -1 inch below the taper so a line is not made.
  10. Optional: The final step of the finishing area is the straight razor shave on sideburns, around the ears, and back of the neck. Apply shaving cream on the areas to be shaved. After shave is complete wipe off excess shaving cream with a clean towel and apply aftershave.
