Men can get haircuts in several ways: their own, out of a catalog, online, and from their barber.
Each type of Men’s Haircut is distinct, and there are advantages and disadvantages to each method.
For example, while you might think that the hairstyles on models in catalogs look fantastic, they’re generally photo-shopped and airbrushed to look that way.
Men’s haircuts are expensive if you’re getting them from a catalog or online, but if you get them from your barber, then they’re much cheaper.
If you want cheap yet good-quality haircuts, go to your barber because he can give them to you for a lower price than what you would get online.
Since getting haircuts from your barber is cheaper, it’s also more convenient. If you’re like most guys who only go to the barber when they need a haircut (after all, making an appointment can be tricky), then this is excellent news for you.
Let’s Start With Buzz Cuts
A buzz cut is where all hair on the head is cut short using clippers or another type of shaver; it’s also called a crewcut.
A buzzcut can be made using two different methods: taking clippers or another type of shaver on the lowest setting to remove all of the hair or cutting it with scissors first then shaving it down to remove any straggling hairs.
A fade is where the hair on the head starts thick and is slowly reduced using clippers until it’s very short; hair gradually becomes shorter on the way down.
A fade can be made by first attaching a guard to your barber’s clippers, choosing the appropriate setting, and then shaving half of your head with that guard attached. When you’re done, remove the guard and shave the rest of your head.
For a taper, first, make sure your barber has a guard attached to his clippers and on the lowest setting.
Then, he should start at the back of your head and gradually make it shorter as he works downwards until there is no hair left. To get this look, one would need only to ask their barber to give them a taper.
First, make sure your barber has a guard attached to his clippers and on the highest setting for a skin fade.
Then, he should start at the back of your head and gradually make it shorter as he works upwards until there is no hair left. To get this look, one would need only to ask their barber for a skin fade.
For a military-style haircut, one should ask their barber for a high fade on the sides and back with a hard part down the center. To get this cut, your barber would stand before you and put the product in your hair.
Then, he would shave the sides and back with clippers on a high setting while keeping the top long enough to style in a quiff or pompadour. Afterward, he would create a straight line down the center of your head using a blade.
This type of haircut is what’s called a comb-over. First, have your barber use a guard on his clippers and shave the sides and back down to about an inch above the ear while leaving the top long enough for styling.
Next, ask your barber to give you a part that goes from one side of your head to another and sweep all of your hair on top of your head to one side.
Lastly, you would use product and style the hair on top of your head into a quiff or pompadour.
