Sure. Would you like to to speak to explain what I'm doing or just slow it down so you can watch me better?

What blade are you using for this cut. Looks great! Thanks.
Tim Addis (3 years ago)
Thank you.
AllenRaySalon (3 years ago)
+Tim Addis I use the #1 blade almost all the time. If it's shorter, I may go to a #000 but usually a #1 and over the comb if it's longer.
I'm a very young barber, but really cam appreciate the traditional approach of clipper and shear over comb and some cosmo techniques of point cutting, beautiful work mam
AllenRaySalon (2 years ago)
Thanks for the love and welcome to the business! Let me know if you have any questions!
Jose Rivera (2 years ago)
I love doing clipper-over-comb, especially with my Wahl Reflections Senior clipper. It's the best clipper I've ever used. But it sucks that even though I'm a hairdresser, I struggle with point cutting.

unfoldyourselfnow vlog (4 years ago)
hey amanda, though it is extremely subtle, would this be considered a faux hawk shape on the top? i'm still learning, and i have a client who wants a very short cut like this but does not like any resemblance of a faux hawk. would it be best to follow your steps, but after blending the sides and back to the top... take horizontal sections from the back of the head to the front cutting a straight line instead of the short to long angle you used? basically so there isn't the longest point at the center of the head? again, this would confirm what i'm trying to learn/connect in my mind. would really appreciate your response, thank you so much!! you are seriously what i dream of becoming someday!! you rock love.

Cabrini Ferreira (4 years ago)
Hey Amanda, How long this haircut takes from cleaning your gear from the last customer to finishing with the hair gel? appointments for cuts like these are every half an hour? In this case. of this haircur specificly, the sides could be done with clippers guaard 3 adn you would still have the same final result, why did you choose clippers over comb? You are great by the way!
Jose Rivera (2 years ago)
I usually cross-check using scissor over comb if the sides look choppy. I also happen to use guards and clipper-over-comb.
AllenRaySalon (3 years ago)
+Cabrini Ferreira Sorry, I just saw this comment. I do not even own a thinning scissors so nope, I never use them. Usually if you need to blend, your sections aren't small enough. You can do most of your blending and refining using the actual tools, just keep refining, refining with small sections. I was the hair to work on clean hair without product or marks from hats. Also, it's just a part of the good service! :)
Cabrini Ferreira (4 years ago)
Why do you wash the hair first?
Cabrini Ferreira (4 years ago)
Do you use thinning scissors for blending? Do you use it at all?

Would this be close to a modified fade? I got a fade a few months ago and it went horrible I wanted alot more on the top then what they gave me *my girl likes it when I spike my hair* and I was just wondering what I tell the lady that cuts my hair so that it doesn't happen again Thank you for your time. You do wonderful work!

Did you touch the razor to skin around the ears?
AllenRaySalon (5 years ago)
Have them watch the video! We're visual so I never mind when people show me what they want. It's hard to say because I don't use guards and it's mostly about the shape.

babyboy505018 (5 years ago)
your awsome! my only advice from me and dont take it the wrong way is to bald taper the neck line i usually start with making a 1A guideline then working from down to up using the 3-0, 0a,1 then 1A. then i erase with the 1-1/2 or with the 2 etc great vids tho!
25Dleo (5 years ago)
i would love to get a haircut by you! I'm super picking with my hair (i know you hear that a lot) but i mean ill get getting a haircut and stop the person to check things and after make more changes i am super crazy about my hair!! but you do all the thing i wish everyone did without asking! like the side burns with the comb cutting the longer ones!!! AWESOME!
MrOilbarron (5 years ago)
Interesting to watch. On a cut like this I would normally take the Oster 76 clipper with whatever blade and just buzzed it up, then clipper over comb on the top. I do many of these a day and normally they take between 7 to 9 minutes.
TranceAddictify (5 years ago)
love your skills. and why are all of your models so goodlooking? hm?? lol
TheMrsmartiekid (5 years ago)
Hey, i was just wondering, can this same look be achieved through using clippers with guards. I love watching people work with a comb and gaurdless clippers but personally i prefer to use gaurds For example i could just just use a gaurd and take it to the same height you took it with the comb, then follow all the other steps, connect the sides and taking out weight at the line created with clippers
Jessie Hopkins (5 years ago)

Oscar Salgado (5 years ago)

PMakeupAndHair (5 years ago)
Great video! I've learned a lot from ur videos..just wondering where u get ur guideline for the top section! Also when ur doing clipper over comb is the comb touching the head or did u slightly have the comb out? Thanks! I've only been a hairdresser for a year and ur videos r so helpful! U should def make more videos!

I absolutely love this video! You did a phenomnal job and your model was just too handsome! Do you have any tuturials on military cuts?
LIVERNIL753 (6 years ago)
I've sifted through a fair few of these type of videos and I have to say, this is one of the most inspiring that I've seen so far to it's trade. You seem genuinely passionate and dedicated to cutting hair and believe in quality too :-) There's just one slight but however: With the clipping cutting technique, against a conventional clipper/guard, the slope of this guy's head doesn't look even; freeze the frame of this vid on 3:10 and you'll see what I mean. All the best - p.s you look attractive!
AllenRaySalon (6 years ago)
I never ask. I ask the key questions..."How long ago was your last haircut? What bothered you as it grew out?" I never ask..."How much do you want me to take off? Or What would you like me to do?" I've never had a client come back because his neck line did or didn't look a certain way. It really comes down to your consultation! Make sense?
pinupdollsarabeth (6 years ago)
When doing this cut do you ask the client if they want a scissor line up or trimmer. Wanna try this kinda line up but i dont know if (to them) if it look unfinished. But i love the cut beautiful.
Musique3579 (6 years ago)
Wow, that was fantastic. If only someone in this town I am stuck in could be 1/10th as good as you.
Sarah Felton (6 years ago)
absolutely love your videos and I've learned a lot! I was just wondering what your consultation was like with this client. just the kinds of questions you asked him. also do you know of any good mens haircutting dvds I can buy online?

thanks - will look to book a time as soon as my trip dates are firm, look forward to you working your magic that you've shown on the vidoes on my thicker, hard to style hair!

I would love to cut it! I'm right downtown Minneapolis in the skyway. My salon is Allen Ray Salon. Our address is 222 S. 9th Street 55402. Thanks! -Amanda*-

where in minneapolis are you lcoated - heading there for work in mid September and loved the video. want to take my hair from its present 4 inches in length to clipper type cut that is shorter and like the look you have in the video.
Marian Achim (6 years ago)
i want more videos of you i love how you cut the hair and your precision is so perfect. Thanks

Well thank you! :)
Dre' Gorrell (6 years ago)
Wow, This is some really nice precision cutting here Amanda. I have just become a fan of yours!!!!
AllenRaySalon (6 years ago)
Thanks! I actually fade with my #1 blade and blend with a comb. I keep the fade pretty low. I would have them watch the video, they should get it! Thanks again!
KG ken (6 years ago)
I love this haircut. If i want my sides and back like this style, how do i tell my stylist? Is this a number 2 taper style? Please explain? Thanks in advance.
Keef (6 years ago)
Thanks Amanda
AllenRaySalon (6 years ago)
I'm not quite sure with this technique but I would imagine that the C shape is a safer way to teach because you're always moving from short to long. The lines are then blendable but it's a lot more work long term. Also, the C shape might work if you're building weight from short to long but if you're trying to remove weight, I would think there are much better options. Try and keep your comb very vertical and let the head shape naturally build the weight, as I think I mentioned earlier.
Keef (6 years ago)
Ah I see great. I've just completed a year course in Barbering in the UK and this isn't something we have been taught. Unfortunately we only learned the method that the tutor favours which is to use clipper guards and the c shape up and out motion. I don't like it though as you put a line in. I notice that you don't have to do much blending with your method as it seems to be naturally blending in when you connect the top to the sides with the scissors. Thanks for the response
AllenRaySalon (6 years ago)
If I'm understanding correctly, yes, the angle of the comb is very important. Not only up and down but side to side and towards me and away from me. If you can think of this, I bring the comb vertically (parallel with the wall) and where the partial ridge starts rounding, it will naturally remove weight.
AllenRaySalon (6 years ago)
Thanks! Glad you liked the show! If I'm using a clipper over comb, yes, I always use the #1 blade. The only time I take it off is if I'm going shorter than a #1 or if I use a 1.5 against the head. The comb is what gives me the different lengths. It gives me more creativity because I can create the shape without following the head shape!
AllenRaySalon (6 years ago)
I do! If it's longer than a 1 or 1.5 blade I use the comb instead of a longer length. I allows me to create different shapes so I don't have to follow the head as a guide. I feel it gives me more control in my creativity. :)
Keef (6 years ago)
So are you just control the angle of the comb, bring it out towards the Parietal ridge?? Thanks
bengordon (6 years ago)
I seen you when you came to Chicago you cut Great!! Quick question do you like to cut everything with a number 1 blade over comb lets say you wanted the sides a little longer would you use the same 1 blade? Also at what length do you decide to cut the sides using vertical partings?
Keef (6 years ago)
Great video. Do you always use clipper over comb technique on the sides as apposed to different length blades or guards??
