The Art Of The Tapered Hairline

In the barbering world the word taper is used often. A tapered haircut simply means shorter hair around the outline gradually getting longer. A tapered outline is the best way to finish off a man’s haircut. It adds another level professionalism to the haircut instead of making a line on the back of the neck.
