HOW TO CUT YOUR OWN HAIR (MEN)

In this tutorial, we are going to show you step by step how to cut your own hair at home without the help of anyone. Please note that this process works beautifully for men who are aiming for a short hairstyle. We will have a different tutorial for those of you with longer hair.

The tools you’ll need for a successful DIY haircut at home are:

  • Electric, adjustable hair clippers
  • Professional barber shears
  • Nekmate neckline shaving template
  • Bathroom mirror

And here are the steps to cut your own hair:

  1. Rinse your hair and quickly towel dry it. Doing so will assure that you hair isn’t flattened anywhere on your head and will result in a more even cut.
  2. Start with the lower portion of your sides and back (by your sideburns, ears and neck). Use your clippers set to the desired length. Your hair will be cut slightly shorter in this area than the rest of the head.
  3. Set the clipper to one point higher in its scale, and trim the upper portion of your sides.
  4. Repeat this process if necessary as you move upward towards the top of your head.
  5. It’s now time to clean up the edges with Nekmate. Grab the shaving template and position it at the desired height on the back of your neck. Then, shave or trim the back of your neck. Click here for a more detailed tutorial on how to use Nekmate.
  6. With shears, cut all protruding hair around your ears.
  7. At this point, you let’s blend the sides in with the top. Use your scissors and carefully cut around the top edges of your sides until you have eliminated the neat line previously created by the clippers.
  8. The last step is to adjust the length on the top. With the index and middle fingers of your one hand, hold up a lock of hair and use your other hand to chop with shears at the desired length. Repeat the process lock by lock until the job is completed.

At this point, all you are left to do is rinse your head again and style your hair as desired. If you follow the steps above, it will be easy to obtain a clean and simple short hairstyle without having to leave the comfort of your home (and save time and money).
