Daniel (5 months ago)
David Falla ok tx
David Falla (5 months ago)
No, it can be however you like
Mikail 035 (6 months ago)
Idc but you wont get the dame result if you use another clipper like wahl it will look diffrent since the blades are more detailed then the other
David Falla (6 months ago)
I have to disagree. All clippers do the same this comes from someone who has tried pretty much every clipper in the marker
Antonio Viera (6 months ago)
Did anyone catch that it goes from step 6 to step 8?

Love the vid. I been having trouble spending the blend on top leaving it too dark I will try the detachable blades now
David Falla (8 months ago)
Thanks and also try softening the line with your thinning shears
Natalie P (8 months ago)
I've tried everything I still can't blend a line. I'm sticking to women's haircutting womens 💇
David Falla (8 months ago)
You should give up. If you do then you will never learn so you should continue until you get it right. Remember that winner win!
Living Upstate (9 months ago)
Cut was untouchable but how do I follow all these steps using Just a wahl senior or fast feed??? I dont have multiple clippers. = i
David Falla (9 months ago)
Thank you and you don’t need multiple clippers. You only need one and that’s it.
Joey Mianulli (9 months ago)
He left to much of a gas in between the fade
David Falla (9 months ago)
A gas?
Joey Mianulli (9 months ago)
Ok fade nothing special
David Falla (9 months ago)
I can’t please everyone you know
Jon Osterman (9 months ago)
I can do this No problem thanks to your vid. Problem is I can’t do it for my own hair - so now my younger brother has to grasp this; which is harder for him than it is for me. I could do a clean fade like this, and my hair will have grown in and not look as good by the end of the week.

What's the name of the intro song?
Miguel Lopez (11 months ago)
Can you do a fade with just clippers machine and guards, or do you need a machine that has an open and close lever?
Zed Nevada (3 months ago)
David Falla I am sure I am being especially dim here which I have no problem admitting, but I don't understand this detachable blade, could you let me know which Andis clippers you use then I will check them out to understand better. Great video btw, one of the absolute best I have seen
David Falla (11 months ago)
Yes you can. You can use a clipper and a comb to do a fade. You can also use a comb and shears to do a fade. I use detachable blade that don’t implement a lever system
Miguel Lopez (11 months ago)
David Falla Im basically wondering if it’s absolutely necessary for your razor to have a lever in order to fade?
David Falla (11 months ago)
Not sure what you mean a “clipper machine and guards”?

Roxanne Meo (1 year ago)
What is the clipper he is using ?? The brand plz
TheFutureTellsOurPast (1 year ago)
looks great, but how do i ask for a fade that isn't shorter than a number 2? do i ask for a number 3 by the top and 2 at the bottom? or just say number 3?
TheFutureTellsOurPast (1 year ago)
ohh okay, got it. thank you for replying:) subbed forsure
David Falla (1 year ago)
+TheFutureTellsOurPast so you want a regular haircut with a #2 on the sides blended to the top. Just tell you barber that you want the top to be connected and that’s it.
TheFutureTellsOurPast (1 year ago)
I've been growing out the top long and want a fade on the sides , but want it to blend in with the top without it looking like an undercut or separated from the top. :)
David Falla (1 year ago)
+TheFutureTellsOurPast it depends on what hairstyle you are getting. Is the top gonna be long or short? Are you going to buzz the top or leave it long so you can style it?

Ömer (1 year ago)
I am from Germany and the majority of the barbers here dont use the technique so this is very hard to understand. What does the clipper do when its Open or close and do you know a good clipper for a Amateur ?😊
Дамир Керей (1 year ago)
Hey, whats up? Thanks for video! Can you tell me, is it even real to make fade by yourself with only one Mother maschine, which has 0, 1, and 4-18? Cant handle it.

this is a low skin fade
Harley Queenn (1 year ago)
About how long on average does it take you to do a zero fade? We get so many requests for them where I work, but honestly, none of us are barbers. So I was wondering how long it takes you personally to do something like this, as I feel it still takes me a long time to blend it well.
Harley Queenn (1 year ago)
Thanks ! I appreciate your response. (: Where I work, we are supposed to try to keep our haircut times between 12-14 minutes, and I feel like that's unreasonable because I don't want to compromise the quality of my cuts.
David Falla (1 year ago)
+Shiolet Music I do 30mins appointments for haircuts and 45mins haircut with beard. So withing that time frame

Dan Nation (1 year ago)
I practice on friends, I see the perfect blend but when I switch angles you can see the shitty lines. it's mah annoying
ALLSTARDECOURO2 (1 year ago)
patients ? lmao
Dan Nation (1 year ago)
yea figured it was the lighting. I'm 25 been cutting for like 3 years but I run low on patients. and a low fade ends up becoming a high fade the more I try to fix it
David Falla (1 year ago)
+Dan Nation it's all about practice or maybe your lighting isn't the best?
Shahzad Ahmad (1 year ago)
It was good until 2:14. you should of kept it like that why did you cut the top shorter and comb it over. Plus the beard shape up was to high on the neck line. The fade on sides was 100
David Falla (1 year ago)
+Shahzad Ahmad I cut it shorter because the client wanted it shorter and the beard shape up was done where the client wanted it. You gotta understand that I gotta do what the client wants

HONESTO UNO (1 year ago)
+David Falla thanks bro sorry for the disrespectful comment I've been trying to fade my sons hair and ive been messing up.
David Falla (1 year ago)
The lever goes up and down so .5 will be in the middle , and I usually do my guides with the lever closed.
HONESTO UNO (1 year ago)
+David Falla​ what do they mean when they say put the lever on point 5? Also when you first start out at the bottom doing your line do you start with the lever open or closed?
David Falla (1 year ago)
+HONESTO UNO your problem is that your are focus on the equipment and not on the technique. Follow my techniques with only one clipper and you will achieve the same results.

Jonathan Alvarez (7 months ago)
HONESTO UNO He didnt have to make this video. And you don't have to watch it. If you want to learn, go to a barber school and learn proper technique. If not, then dont be complaining about free tutorials.
HONESTO UNO (1 year ago)
+David Falla​​ I wish somebody would do a video on how to fade with just the machine clip 1 and and whatever you want the top to be. You use a shaver clip o.5 also in the video you use like 4 different machines/clippers. Do a fade with 1 machine that's it, most people don't have 4 clippers at home and it confuses people when you use different machines.
David Falla (1 year ago)
+HONESTO UNO it's all the same thing. It doesn't matter the tool, just learn the technique
David Falla (1 year ago)
+HONESTO UNO what do you mean regular clippers?
HONESTO UNO (1 year ago)
David Falla we just have regular clipers
