Wahl Lithium Ion Clipper

Usually when my son needs to get a hair cut, I take him to the local barber shop. I could try to cut my son's hair at home but I'm nervous I would totally ruin the haircut. Much better to go to the barber shop, since the barbers know how to cut and style my son's hair to get the right look.

But going to the barber shop can be a bit pricey. If you want to save some money and cut your child's hair at home then here are a few tips and tricks from a Wahl Master Barber!

Wahl Clipping Hair: Tips and Tricks

  • Make sure the hair is clean, dry, and tangle-free.
  • Prepare to cut by combing hair.
  • Make sure to have proper lighting from all angles. Dim light and shadows make it very hard to
  • Feel your scalp before you clip. It’s best to know if you have any irregularities or bumps
  • Get how-to-videos, downloadable instructions and more at
  • Start conservatively, with the largest guide comb. You can always go shorter!
  • Cut only a small amount of hair until you become accustomed to the length of hair each guide comb provides (use the Wahl guide comb listing for help).
  • When cutting, you will want to move the clipper upwards and outwards through the hair, a little at a time, against the direction of hair growth.
  • For blended cuts, begin by cutting the back hairline in upward strokes at a slow, even speed. Cut the middle of the head next, using a guide comb one number higher than the guide comb first used and the same method of upward and even strokes. Once the middle is complete, pick a guide come one number higher than the one used for cutting the middle. Begin cutting the top section of hair from the front, working your way back.
  • Once complete, it is important to blend the haircut. To blend the back and sides into the top area, use a rocker motion. With the clipper resting in the palm of your hand, cut upwards from the nape of the neck, bringing the clipper away from the head with a slow flick of the wrist.

Finishing Touches
  • When you’re done clipping, check for missed spots or uneven places Pay close attention to the back and crown and use a trimmer to clean up around the ears and neckline.
