What do I tell my barber for an undercut?
How to Get the Undercut You Want
- Last Look First. Very important, and a step most guys forget, is telling your barber how long it’s been since your last haircut, undercut or fade.
- Set Your Terms.
- Taper or Fade (interchangeable)
- Neckline (or nape, back of the neck)
- Post-Cut Products.
What should I ask my barber to slick back?
Classic Slick Back Ask your barber for a grade two or three on the sides to differentiate it from the undercut, and for it to be kept as long as possible on the top. When styling, apply some strong hold pomade straight out of the shower then push it back before allowing it to dry naturally.
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.
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.
What is the difference between disconnected undercut and undercut?
What’s the difference between disconnected undercut and undercut? The main difference between these styles is the way the hair transits from the longer crown to short sides. In a classic undercut, the fade is blending gradually, in a disconnected undercut it’s noticeable and even emphasized.
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 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)
What is a disconnected undercut?
The disconnected undercut is so named because the hair on top of the head is “disconnected” from the sides. This means that the transition from the longer hair on top to the short hair on the sides isn’t gradual. Rather, there’s a clearly defined point where the long hair stops and the short hair immediately begins.
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.
