How to Cut your Hair to have a Close Cut
The Close Cut is the cleanest look of them all and it’s a style that you can do on your own. Upkeep should be part of your regular routine and it’s easy to do with Wahl clippers.
What you will need:
- Wahl clipper
- Wahl shaver
How to Do a Close Haircut Step-by-Step
Use your Wahl clipper with the taper level at its closest position. Using an upward rocking motion, cut the sides and back of the head, rotating the clipper head as you change sides. Use careful, fluent strokes and a mirror as your guide.
Now focus on the top of the head, running the clipper in smooth, straight strokes from front to back. Run the clipper over the same spots, if necessary.

Tips for the Perfect Self Haircut
Choosing the Right Guide Comb
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.
