Hair clippers have long been available for use not only in hairdressing salons, but also at home. With the help of such a machine, you can cut yourself or your relatives on your own.
Choose the right and comfortable clipper for your hair. They are of two types: rotary and vibration. Rotary-type machines are considered more powerful. They consume 20-50 watts of energy and can be used to cut hair of almost any thickness and stiffness. When choosing a rotary model, remember that cheap devices can get quite hot for the first two weeks of use. This occurs due to the fact that new parts take a long time to get used to work. Then they heat up less and work more efficiently.
The power of vibration-type machines is 8-13 watts. They are more compact than rotary models. Moreover, the time of continuous operation of such devices is no more than 20-25 minutes. After that, they need a short break. Moreover, such machines can vibrate strongly, and therefore require a certain skill in use.
Prepare your hair for a haircut. Wash them, dry and comb them well. Divide the head visually into four zones: parietal, temporal, occipital and inferior-occipital. Place the comb attachment on the clipper and pre-trim. Start moving from the back of the head, gradually moving to the temples and ending at the parietal region.
Some clippers can be used with wet hair, but it is better to cut on dry hair, as otherwise the knives will become dull and covered with a bloom of adhering damp hairs.
Move the clipper slowly and smoothly against the hair growth. Run over the same places several times to get a neat haircut. Comb thoroughly after each pass of the clipper to remove cut hairs.
After processing the entire head, install a shorter nozzle, for example, replace the 12 mm comb with its 9 mm counterpart. Go through the temporal and occipital regions. Moving around the ears, move the auricle with your left hand. Hair in this area can grow both forward and backward, so here it is better to walk the clipper several times in the forward and backward direction.
To reduce the line between hair of different lengths, press the clipper more firmly against the head in the back of the head. When approaching the parietal zone, move your hand away, increasing the angle with the scalp and attachment. So the transition will be smooth.
Install a shorter extension, for example 6 mm. Treat the inferior occipital and inferior temporal zones again. Comb your hair in different directions. To create a bang, select a triangular area above the forehead. The closer to the crown of the top point, the thicker the bangs will turn out. Draw straight parting to the temples.
Start cutting with scissors. Lift up the strands of hair and, determining the appropriate length, trim them with scissors. Focusing on the already finished strands, trim the rest of the hair mass. Gather the strands with your fingers or a comb and trim off any loose hairs. Fring the temples and neck with a no-attach razor.
