What should I ask a barber?
Again, asking for a haircut is all about these simple steps:
- Know what haircut or style you want before you visit your barber.
- If you want a fade, know how short (hair clipper size) and where it should start (high, mid or low).
- Think about the length of hair you want on top.
What is a 3 in Barber terms?
Guard #3 = 3/8 inch. #3 is usually the guard limit in shorter styles. Fade haircuts typically have a #3 on the sides.

What Is a Number 4 haircut?
Leaving 1/2 of an inch, ‘Number 4 haircut’ is the medium length – and one of the most popular choices for short hair. Ideal for people with a rounder face, it leaves a good amount of hair while still maintaining a neat and tidy hair length.
Can I show my barber a picture?
There’s a catch though — the best photo you can bring in to show your barber is a picture of yourself after a haircut that you really liked. A picture of someone else’s hair doesn’t take into account your hair’s individual traits, like thickness, texture, and hair line.
Why do barbers thin out hair?
When I’m styling someone’s hair, I sometimes use thinning shears to soften the edges of the haircut, especially around the ears. Thinning shears are also great for fading short, clippered sides into a longer top, so don’t be alarmed if your barber whips them out towards the end of the haircut.
Is a taper a fade?
A taper is when hair gradually changes from one length to another. A fade is a shorter taper that blends or fades into the skin —hence the name.
Can a barber cut a woman’s hair?
That being said, women are welcome at barber shops. Barbers are trained in cutting hair into simple styles. They do not color hair hair or use complicated cutting techniques. Men that need to have their hair colored or want a fashionable haircut tend to go to hairdressers.
How many inches is considered a trim?
A “trim” to most stylists, though, is the codeword for taking off enough to eliminate damage. Because everyone’s hair is different, a trim can mean a quarter of an inch for some and up to several inches for others.
Why you shouldn’t cut your hair?
“By not cutting your hair, you are actually risking the length rather than letting it grow,” says Bivona. When those ends split, they’ll eventually travel up your hair and break it off higher, leaving your hair shorter than before—and such was the case with my sad, sad locks.
