How to Do a Peaked Haircut Step-by-Step
Select attachment guard #2 (1/4") or #3 (3/8") for your
Wahl clipper. Begin in front of the ear, blending the back of the neck and under the rim of the head (Sections 1 and 2. See infographic below.) as you move around the head. When working over the ears, bend them down and out of the way so you can easily cut the hair.
Continue cutting the hair at the nape of the neck. Cut up to the rim of the head (section 3) but do not cut the Faux Hawk section on top of the head.
Cut the left and right sides of the top of the head (section 4) to desired length, leaving the center long for now.
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.
Make Sure to Blend Your Hair
With fine hair, you will need to do more blending because it tends to show different cut lengths more easily.
