How to Do a Buzz Cut Step-by-Step
Wahl clipper, select an attachment guard for the desired length you'd like to achieve. The higher the number on your
guide comb, 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.
Guide combs attach to the clipper and are designed to cut hair at a certain length. The smaller the number, the shorter the cut. The larger the number, the longer the hair will be. Remember, you can always cut off more hair, but you can’t add hair, so start off with a larger guide comb if you’re unsure.
