How to Do a Brush Haircut Step-by-Step
Dampen your hair with the spray bottle. Comb your hair down so it is lying straight.
Select your Wahl clipper and appropriate attachment guard for the desired length. Start in front of the right ear and cut the hair starting at the back of the neckline, under the rim up to the rim of the head (Sections 1, 2 and 3. See infographic below.) Be sure to cut the hair at the nape of the neck.
Blend the hair from the rim of the head to the top of the head (section 3 to section 4) by moving the clipper straight up.
To cut the hair in on the top of the head, hold the hair straight up and use the technique that you are most comfortable with. We suggest the clipper-over-fingers technique to shorten the hair. Cut the top of the head from front to back.

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.
