This will ensure that your hair strands are evenly cut. It also helps in maintaining synchrony. Now, you should find a comfortable place to follow the steps ahead.

After that comb the hair between the part and the ear down. Repeat this method on both sides of the head. In case you have long hair, opt for a hairclip to separate the sections.
4) With the help of clippers, cut the back and sides of the hair
For cutting the back and sides of the hair, clippers are far better than scissors. Do note that you need to you set your clippers’ guard to 1 or 2 to control the amount of hair you cut.
5) Using scissors, cut the top hair
