my first cut didn't go well... I have longer hair on top and a bigger beard so I figured I'd start with guide comb number 8, went down to 6... and stopped. for some reason I can't fade the 8 with the long hair from top at the back... what am I doing wrong? I want to keep the longer hair on top (it's like 3.5 - 4 inches). I kinda feel bad for spending money on clippers now...but I never felt bad about having a haircut in a barbershop...

Great job! I cut my own hair too. For the back, I turn my back towards the large mirror, using the hand mirror to view the larger’s reflection(larger view).

No change at all you idiot! Plus, the most difficult part is the top which you ditched it somehow!
Justin Kwon (12 days ago)
I'm gonna start cutting my own hair. I'm so freaked out... have no idea what a "closed position" and all that is.

He needs to wax his brow tho
Mark M (14 days ago)
The bit that worries me most is doing the high area on the back of your head where the shaved area meets your longer scalp area. I have made a mess when I've tried to do it before, but I will try it the way you did it and hopefully it'll turn out better. Cheers!
Just used your guide to cut my own hair for the first time. Spot on! Worked a treat.
Sifaka (21 days ago)
Haha I'm gonna cut my hair to your same size and copy you. I always fuck up my back and it looks weird afterwards. For the last step I'm just going to buy a template on amazon.
Metalnerm (22 days ago)
I don't know how to fade the hair. I have ruined it so many times...especially with the short combs I find it difficult to fade

Not sure where I went wrong but when it got to the part where i use the #1 open, it left a clear line between the #2 and #1 and I can’t get rid of it. Tried to blend it with no luck. Had to cut all my hair shorter on the sides and will have to wear a hat for the next several days. Lol. 😭😭
touchthesky65 (1 month ago)
you explain things very well ! just cut my hair for the first time after watching your videos. came out amazing :-) wife helped with the back part though :-D
touchthesky65, really glad to hear! Thanks for sharing
Noor Alenazy (1 month ago)
I followed your steps but somehow forgot to put the cover of the clipper back on it and shaved my side hair to zero!!! I fucked it up! Now I'll wait for another month to let it grow, and try again! NEVER GIVE UP.

Is there a handheld mirror you recommend? any particular brand/size?
BeautyofScent (14 days ago)
What brand is the one you have and where did you buy it from? thanks.
BeautyofScent, any mirror with a handle like mine and about the same size as mine. You don’t want it to be too heavy but you don’t want it to be so small that you can’t see much

Thanks for those videos man, I want to keep the sides short which only takes my barber less than 5 minutes but he still wants the full price. I also cant afford to go more than 1x each month to the barber.

StormCrow (2 months ago)
Well, I tried it for the first time. Considering I had like 35/45 hair for a while, I'm not sure how it turned out... Might've taken too much off from the top. What's your opinion about starting out with about a 12-15 everywhere, then do the sides?

Happy Days (2 months ago)
With the up and out techniqe do u use the lower guard to smooth it out? Do u have the guard open or closed? I dont get it so u go little higher to smooth it out
Happy Days, for all steps of the fade, as you stroke upward with your clippers, you should be moving away from the head at the same time. That’s all that’s meant by the technique. It’s not for one specific step
Tom Jones (2 months ago)
I do my own fades too. I don't even use a mirror. I just carry the lines from the side of my head around back. I go through the clipper settings one by one (shorter hair) taking on about a quarter inch strip at a time. Then, the longer hair you can skip to every other setting.

This is really helpful because i would have never thought to start at the top with a 6 and work down!i always start with a number one and work my way up and i can never blend it right and Jack up my hair everytime so i end up shaving my head..im bout to try this and will update you guys on the outcome

Tips work great! Cut my hair by myself today for the first time. To my wife less than 2 minutes to trim up the few spots I missed but that's because I did not have a hand mirror.

I'm doing this to my hair the same way you did. and that's why i don,t need to go to the barbershop anymore because i know the tricks already.
Beebop Baloobap, awesome! Thanks for sharing
Aaron Hall (3 months ago)
How are you blending the top when you are using the 6 at the beginning? That's the part I can't seem to understand when I'm trying to cut my own hair
Aaron Hall, either try a number 8, or what I’m doing is lifting the clippers away from my head the higher I go. So when I start a single stroke with the number 6 it’s pressed to my head, and by the end of the stroke it’s lifted away from my head. Does that make sense?

Brent Jordan (3 months ago)
I have watched tons of tutorials and this is the best one by far. Really breaks down the steps and simplifies the process better than others. I will be giving this a shot in the up coming day or 2. If my hair is shorter than yours would u recommend sill following the same steps clipper guards and what not?
Brent Jordan, thanks a lot! You can follow the same steps for your first time, and then the next time you do it you can just skip whichever steps aren’t actually cutting any hair

Joel Anthon (3 months ago)
Nice. I cut my hair most of the time too and I don't think you can even tell if it is "professional" or done on my own. It's pretty simple to do once your used to it and have some clippers. And you save money, which we all need more of.
Stingy McDuck (3 months ago)
6:21 "because of the reverse effect mirrors tend to have" LOL Loving your videos dude, I'm learning a lot. I just wanted to point out that line you said. Not hating or anything i just found it funny.
Stingy McDuck, good point 😂 haha
imaginative2 (3 months ago)
I gave this a shot, but my g6 to top transition ended up being really obvious
imaginative2, as you move up on that step, move the clippers away from your head. Up and out makes for a smoother transition

Billzloveschelsea (5 months ago)
You should make videos with long hair so it's easier for us to understand and follow. Because my hair was very long and thick from the sides. I understood the side part but the upper part wasn't easy and my hair became uneven..
Billzloveschelsea (4 months ago)
Tips for Clips - Haircutting I hope to see it on your next video. The only thing is just cutting the side short when it's very thick and bushy rest of the video was easy. Your welcome ♥️
Billzloveschelsea, I see. You got it—I’m going to release that video next time I cut my hair. Thanks for all the support!
Billzloveschelsea (4 months ago)
Tips for Clips - Haircutting I'm Spanish my hair is 100% same as yours. it's s Also soft and smooth. That's why I watched your video because your hair was identical to mine. I hope you can accept my request and make the video I asked for I just subscribed to you too and I've told all my friends to join you.
Billzloveschelsea, thanks. However, if your hair is a different texture than mine and if it didn’t work well for you, it might not change no mater how long it is. My hair is straight and soft. These tips work best for this kind of hair. Good luck, and stay posted for more videos
Billzloveschelsea (5 months ago)
Tips for Clips - Haircutting unfortunately I'm bold now because it was hard to follow as my hair was very different from how you were showing it on the video. Yes grow it really bushy and long then make the same video again overall it was a good video.

This didn't work out for me now I'm bold and I got work on Monday :/

Can I use a beard trimmer for this? It's got 20 length settings. Here is the link Philips Beard Trimmer Cordless and Corded for Men QT4011/15 https://www.amazon.in/dp/B00JJIDBIC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_3D99Ab22M0AJF
Ganesh Sahane, good! Yeah, Wahl and Andis and Osters are the way to go
Ganesh Sahane (3 months ago)
Tips for Clips - Haircutting alright so I did try using that trimmer and it wasn't good. The cut was uneven so I had to stop. I ordered a cheap wahl clipper for 20$ and it is perfect, am able to try this cut. Thanks!

Tips for Clips - Haircutting thanks for the reply! Will try soon and update :)
You can, though it might be a little tough at first figuring things out. Once you do though, it'll work no problem.
