Cutting Your Hair At Home Is A Valuable Skill Set

4) Cutting Your Hair At Home Is A Valuable Skill Set:

Learning anything new is an art, which requires practice. Keep it very simple by choosing a specific style that looks best but doesn’t take too much effort to achieve.

The easiest way to get started is with shorter hair. With time as your hair grows longer, guidance of a professional becomes more essential.

“Here is a good order to practice from easy to difficult.

The Easiest Cuts:

These require the least amount or practice and are great for beginners. 

Close cut This is the perfect cut to practice at home with. It’s the closest shave to your head and requires daily upkeep, but it takes the least amount of knowledge.

Buzz Cut The uniformed length on the top, back, and sides make this the easiest cut to maintain. It’s a hair longer (no pun intended) than the close cut so you can go a couple days between maintenance.

Easy Cut This is the cut that looks best on you. No need to worry about the rules here. You can experiment a bit on the perfectly shaped cut for your head.

Brush Cut This is the easiest cut to achieve with a little bit of length. The brush cut is perfect for the man on the go who just desires a streamlined look without buzzing down to nothing”.

The best places for touch ups are:
  • Arch
  • Sideburns
  • Neck

Most current styles don’t have the hair touching the ears. Don’t use scissors around the ears. Instead, use a trimmer or inverted clipper to shape the hairline with a steady single-direction motion. Bend the ear down so they’re out of the way for quick trimming.
Whether you’re tapering, straightening, or trimming, uniformity on both sides is key. It’s easiest to trim the sideburns if they’re damp. Comb in their natural direction of growth and use the trimmer or clipper to reach your desired shape. The neck is the easiest to go unnoticed simply because it is out of site. Remember, it’s only out of YOUR site. Many people see a hairy neckline. All it takes is a spare minute and a mirror. Use the trimmer or clippers in the closest position. Run in an upward position to eliminate growth.
