Steps for Using the Upward Rocking Motion

  • 1

    Using the Upward Rocking Motion is sometimes the best way to blend different lengths of hair in different sections of the head to achieve a finished look. To do this, carefully pull the clipper away from the scalp in fluid strokes as you cut upward to blend the hair from one length to the next.

    With fine hair, you will need to do more blending because it tends to show different cut lengths more easily.
