How do I tell my barber to cut my hair?
Tell him how much you want taken off and where After you tell your barber what general style you want, tell him exactly how much you want taken off. Don’t just say, “Give me a trim, Mac” or “Just a little off the top.” One barber’s trim is another barber’s close shave.

Is it better to cut your own hair or go to a barber?
Most people won’t get the same level of quality by cutting their own hair compared to having a barber do it for you. As a good middle ground, you could have your hair cut by a professional and then trim it to shape yourself as time goes on.
What does a 2 haircut look like?
‘Number 2 haircut’ will give you a slightly longer cut – 1/4 of an inch. It is one of the most popular haircut lengths out there, as it gives you a nice short hair that doesn’t show the scalp. It can work perfectly on both thick or thin hair.
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.
Why are barbers cash only?
Another reason for not taking credit cards is less spoken: dealing in cash makes it easier to avoid paying taxes. And if accepting credit cards means that barber shops get just one more haircut a day, barber shops could be losing money by sticking to cash only.
Is it OK to show 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.
