Barber Tips for Hair Conscious Guys

Barbershop Haircut Tips for Guys

Sadly, old-world barbers are slowly becoming extinct, which is why when you do find one, it is important to get to know him. Having good communication with yours is critical. Doing this helps him to give you a good haircut. Moreover, they will know exactly what your style is without you having to say anything.

Be Specific

When getting a haircut, be as concise as possible when describing what you want. This can be achieved by knowing all the clipper sizes and hair lengths associated with each one. So if you ask for a “trim,” the barber will have no idea how much hair you are talking about.

Number guards run from 1 to 8 and are indicative of length in inches. For example, a number one is 1/8 of an inch, a number found is 4/8 of an inch, and a number eight is an inch. By knowing these you can communicate with your barber and let him know what you want.

For example, if you ask for a number 8 on the top, a number 1 on the sides, and tapered at the back. These instructions will let your barber know exactly how you want them to cut your hair, so you do not have any surprises when you get home.

Knowing Your Hair

Not everyone gets the same haircut. Depending on the shape of your face and the type of hair that you have, you should get a cut that makes you look the best you can be. This is why bringing a picture of someone that you know who has a haircut that you like may help the barber get a better idea of what you want. Short hairstyles work best for every hair and facial type, however, if you want a longer cut, you will have to be realistic with your expectations.
