GET THE LOOK
Consultation: Begin by thoroughly discussing their desired haircut with your client. This is crucial to clarify the style and length they want for the top of their head and the desired level of shortness for the fade on the sides and back.
Prep the Hair: Ensure your client’s hair is clean and dry. Use a comb to remove any tangles, making the hair more manageable for the haircut.
Clipper Guard Selection: Start with the highest guard you intend to use, usually a 5 or 4, and work your way down. This step ensures a seamless transition between different hair lengths. Attach the selected guard securely to your clippers.
Creating the Base: Initiate by running the clippers with the highest guard attachment all over the sides and back of the head, moving in an upward motion. This action establishes the base length for the fade.
Gradual Guard Switch: Progressively switch to shorter guard sizes (e.g., 3, 2, and 1) as you work your way up the sides and back of the head. It’s crucial to blend each section smoothly into the previous one. Depending on the area, you may need different guards to achieve the desired look.
Blending the Top & Sides: Switch scissors to blend the hair on top with the sides. Comb the hair on top and cut it to the desired length, ensuring a natural transition into the faded sides. The point-cutting technique can be used for a more organic appearance.
Tapering the Edges: Achieve a clean and polished look by tapering the edges around the ears and neckline. Typically, this is done with clippers without a guard and a comb to blend the hair into the skin smoothly.
Detailing: Take the time to inspect any uneven spots or areas requiring additional blending meticulously. Make any necessary adjustments to guarantee a smooth and even fade.
Styling: Style the hair according to your client’s preferences, using appropriate styling products, if needed. This step brings the haircut to life and completes the desired look.
