What is a line up in barbering?
A shape-up, also called a line-up or an edge-up, is a hairstyle that involves cutting along the natural hairline to straighten it. Shape-ups or edge-ups are the fundamental outline for haircuts today. Edge-ups are typically found among men and short-haired women.
How do I tell my barber what I want?
this is exactly what you should say:
- Tell your barber how long it has been since your most recent haircut.
- Tell your barber about your lifestyle.
- Be specific about how you want your hair to look.
- Bring a picture (but only of your hair)
Whats the difference between a haircut and a line up?
If your hair is naturally curly, you can keep the curls on top and get a line up on the front, sides, and back. The line up “haircut” is less of a cut and more of a versatile technique that you can use with almost any haircut for a sharp look.
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.
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.
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.
What do you say to a barber for a fade?
Talk to the barber in detail about your fade before they start cutting.
- You can say something like “I want a temple fade with a line in the back, but I want to keep it longer on the top.
- Or you can say something like, “I want my fade to look like Lupe Fiasco’s old fade, but I want the fade to start higher on the sides”
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.
How much should I tip my barber?
Generally speaking, for good service, you should tip 15 to 20 percent of the entire bill. Tip more for exceptional service or less for what you consider to be inadequate service. Tipping is your way of saying “job well done,” so tip more if the person performing the service has gone above and beyond what is expected.

How often should I get a line up?
Most skin fade styles get touched up every 2 weeks. Yet, some men are able to stretch their barbershop visits to every 4 weeks. Getting a haircut every month or 2 is a good rule of thumb for most men with short or medium length hairstyles. Longer hairstyles can get away with going 3 to 4 months.
