  • With the number 1 guide comb of your Wahl clipper, use a rocking, upward motion to closely cut the sides and back of the head.
  • Once the back and sides are done, focus on the top of the head. Use a number 2, 3 or 4 guide comb, depending on desired length.
  • From front to back, run the clipper in a rocking motion, leaving the hair in front slightly longer to achieve a flat-top look.
  • Remove the guide comb to touch up the back and sides, using the mirror as your guide.
  • Take your time and use careful, concise strokes.
  • Using your Wahl trimmer or the inverted clipper technique, clean up your neckline.

  1. My boyfriend wants me to start cutting his hair for him, because the barber is getting more expensive. When he goes, he usually gets a #4 on the sides, with scissors on top. I don’t mind doing it this way, but could I use the hair clipper on top too, that just cuts at a longer length? If so, which one should I use? I don’t want to use it and then cut it too short on accident. Thanks! 10 pts. to best answer
