How To Cut Mens Hair With Clippers
This is a short informative video in which a professional barber demonstrates the proper way to cut men's hair using clippers as well as a brush, comb, blow dryer and talcum powder.
Hi. In today's video, I'm going to show you how to cut men's hair using clippers. For this, you're going to need some clippers and a comb.
The first thing to do is to make sure that your clippers are well oiled so they don't clump the hair up, then choose the clipper grade. This is number three. Make sure it's attached properly so it doesn't fall off, because you don't want to put a big bald spot on his head.
So, make sure the head is upright and straight, and I'm going to start by just coming in and working against the hair there, then all the way to the top. Just going against the hair there, you get a bit of resistance against it. Then, move the ear, and come up that way.
Then, just gently work your way around starting from the bottom, and work your way to the top. Now, come around to the other side and do exactly the same thing, just work all the way up to the top. Now, we come around to the front, and just work your way back, moving up to the crown.
Then, your next section, just work your way back again. Then, with this crown section, because the hair grows in different directions, the best thing to do is just keep going against the hair. Then, on this side, go against it again.
Once you've done that, go around again and just make sure you've got all the hair. Just going against the hair, move the ear out of the way to get that bit above the ear. Come back around to the top, just going in the opposite direction just to make sure you've got all the hair cut off.
Now, go back around to the other side, going up against the hair again. Let's get down and have a look in the mirror to see if there are any long ones you can see in that. Now, what we're going to do is put a lower grade on this, a number two, and we're just going to go around the edges so it's a little bit shorter, and just get a nicer taper above the hairline.
Just work all the way around doing that. Now, I'm going to come in with a number two which is just a little shorter than a number three obviously, and I'm just going to flick around the hairline, just so it's a slight bit shorter. Then you just get a nicer finish on it, a nicer taper just around the hairline.
Just gently flick it on the hairline there. Don't go in too heavy, otherwise, you'll get a real heavy line around there. Once you've done that, the next thing to do is get these little neck clippers, and you're just going to come around and tidy his sideburns up.
It's going to nicely line out all around the edges, and just give it a nice finish. Let's move the ear out of the way to get the hair behind it, and just taper the nape of the neck there. Get that a little bit shorter to give it a nice finish around the edges.
And on this front bit here, just kind of go in gently. Not to put a heavy line in or anything, just to kind of trim all those loose hairs off the front, on the fringe. You don't want to go in too high, otherwise, you'll have a real sort of blunt line at the front.
Right now, I'm just going to get the hair dryer and just blow some of the hair off just to see if there are any loose ones on there. Now, we're just going to go with a number three and just go back over it again just to see if there's any long hair, any ones I've missed on there. Kind of get down to eye level as well, just to see if there are any hairs sticking up.
With that done, all you need to do is get a bit of talcum powder, put it on the brush, and then brush him down. And there you are, all done. And that's how you cut men's hair using clippers. .
