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)
How long should my hair be for an undercut?
Undercut Requirements Up top, you want a horseshoe-shaped section of longer hair, between 4 and 6 inches, starting at the corners of the front of the hairline and going back to the center of your cowlick. If you plan on parting the undercut, have the hair cut slightly longer on the side you’ll be parting from.
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.
Should I get a fade or undercut?
When you’re deciding between a taper vs fade cut think about your face shape and which haircuts tend to suit someone of your stature. If you’re looking for a safer, inoffensive cut then taper is more likely to be the one. Whereas if you’re looking for something with a little more edge and bravado, consider a fade.
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 I tell my 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.
Can I pull off an undercut?
Any face shape can pull off an undercut, but the length of the remaining hair will be important in the same way it is for any cut.
Are undercuts out of style?
Undercuts are definitely still cool. They’re edgy, badass, and are a great way to get thick hair under control. Plus, they look great with both long and short hair and with a range of styling options.
How do you make an undercut look good?
How to Wear the Undercut Hairstyle
- Rake product upward and outward to create height.
- Side clippings, even the most minimal, can upgrade the most no-nonsense of undercuts and fades.
- Surprisingly versatile, the slick-back also hides any bald spots too.
- Comb-over undercuts are best when shiny, but not greasy.
Is hair long enough for undercut?
Before you get the disconnected undercut, you’ll want a good amount of length on the top of your head. This gives the disconnected effect, since the long hair on top will sharply contrast with the short hair on the sides. The length is up to you, but about 2 inches is a good starting point.
Where should I part my hair for an undercut?
Placing the part directly on top of the round of the head is the safest place. It allows us to stack the hair above the round of the head in a way that is very close to the head and it gives us a view that is very lean and safe.
