How to Cut your Hair to have a Textured Cut
A textured haircut is popular for men of all ages and works well for all hair types. It tones down volume and helps shape thick hair. For those with thinning or fine hair, it helps create body, which gives the appearance of a fuller head of hair.
What you will need:
- Wahl clipper
- Wahl trimmer
- #3 (3/8") guide comb attachment
- #5 (5/8") guide comb attachment
How to Do a Textured Haircut Step-by-Step
Dampen your hair with the spray bottle. Comb your hair down so it is lying straight.
Work your way around the sides to the back of the head, blending under the rim to the rim of your head as you go (Sections 2 and 3. See infographic below.).
Use the clipper-over-finger technique to cut the top section of the head. Cutting the top section at a slightly different length can provide more texture for this hairstyle. Cut the bangs last.
Use a #5 (5/8") guide comb to blend the shorter sides with the longer top section of the head.

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.
