How to Cut your Hair to have a Buzz Cut
The Buzz Cut is popular with everyone from musicians to athletes to military men to anyone with an active lifestyle. It’s easy to do and maintain, so create a buzz with your next look.
How to Get a Buzz Cut
Using your Wahl clipper, select an attachment guard for the desired length you'd like to achieve. The higher the number, the longer the cut. Using an upward motion, and start cutting the sides and back of the head.
Once the back and sides are done, move on to the top of the head. From front to back, run the clipper in smooth, straight strokes across the top. If you see unwanted cut lines, go back and blend with an upward motion.
To touch up the sides, take your time and use concise strokes. You can always use the ear trim guides to build your confidence around your ears.
Using your Wahl trimmer or the inverted clipper technique, clean up the neckline with careful, concise strokes for tight, straight lines.
