Tapered Mens Haircut Using CLIPPER OVER COMB



Tips for a Great Tapered Mens Haircut

  • Make a note the hair texture; this will determine how you taper the hair.
  • Start off with the hair mostly dry.
  • When you put the comb into the hair, make sure to bevel it out slightly.

  • Work diagonally back so that the weight line falls lower towards the nape of the neck.
  • Don’t shift to a horizontal cut as you get to the nape of the neck; instead you want to build in a v-shape.
  • Use the trimmer to clean up all the edges.
  • Wet down the hair and comb it back to find out where the natural part is.

Transformation – Getting It Right

Repairing an Ombré Transformation Nightmare

Lily Duong (@Hairbylily408) from Hair by Lily at Salons by JC met with a new client that needed some color magic. “She had gone to a stylist that overly processed her hair on top with pale blond highlights,” says Duong. “She asked for an ombré so the stylist took her whole bottom layer of hair and slapped bleached on it. Her hair was left orange and brassy.” Duong jumped in to reverse the color design to get it right.”

Lily Duong reviews

“I love the color and highlights, subtle but very pretty. Lily knew exactly what I wanted, and I am thrilled with the results. I wanted the base color a little darker brown with some added dimension of highlights. ”

“Lily is an artist in her own right. As a new client, I had an idea of what I wanted and Lily listened to me and gave her honest professional opinion. Being that she is the professional and it was my first time coloring my hair, I knew to trust her. She is honest and won’t give you any BS when it comes to your hair and if you can’t handle honesty, don’t bother sitting in her seat! She’s hilarious too and I totally enjoyed my time with her. I’m definitely lucky I got to see her as soon as I did because of a cancellation. Is she worth the 1 year wait? ABSOLUTELY. ”
