How to Touch Up the Arch Around Your Ears
Unlike other eras, most current styles don’t feature the hair going over – or even touching – the ears. Keeping your hair off your ears is easy. All you need is a Wahl trimmer or clipper. It’s never encouraged to use scissors around the ears and eyes.
How to Trim the Arch Around Your Ears Step-by-Step
When working over the ears, it’s often easier to bend down the ear so it’s out of the way for quick trimming.
Shape the hairline with a steady, single-direction motion.

Tips for the Perfect Self Haircut
Touch Up Your Neckline
For detailing around the ears, sideburns and neckline, try the inverted clipper technique. Just turn the clipper upside down so the blade is facing downward.
Use the Inverted Clipper Technique
Hold the clipper in your hand as if it is a thick pencil. Touch the blade to the skin. There’s no need to press firmly.
