What haircut should I get at the barber?
Here’s a few of the coolest haircuts to get according to face shape:
- Round: pompadour, faux hawk, fringe, side part, quiff, and spiky hair with high fade or undercut.
- Square: buzz cut, crew cut, brush up, quiff, pomp, messy crop, and long comb over with fade or undercut.
How do I tell my barber to cut my hair?
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.

- Bring a picture (but only of your 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.
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.
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.
Can a barber cut long hair?
The main difference between the two types of haircutters is that barbers are typically trained to cut shorter, traditional haircuts for men while salon stylists are trained to cut longer, fuller men’s styles. Conversely, a salon stylist receives more training in the art of styling hair for women with scissors.

Well, If you have a lean face, strong jaw, and good cheekbones, you’re a shoo-in for the buzz cut look. Just be wary that if your forehead is already on the larger side, or your jaw is something you don’t want to be drawing attention to, tightly cropped hair will probably not be for you.
