There are many ways to use a pair of clippers, the most obvious way to create an overall length is to use the grades provided when you purchase your clipper. This is very effective and not to be dismissed, however, I believe that to maximise precision you should have full control of the geometric angles that you are trying to achieve. I don’t believe this can be gained from using a grade that has been created to contour the scalp. I found that creating all lengths (including 0) is far more effective when you create the angles using your comb as your grading system.
This course is designed to give you full confidence and understanding in your ability to create all of your shorter length cuts including a skin fade using ONLY your clipper and comb for the back and sides.You will also learn various scissors techniques to cut the hair on the top of the head to compliment the geometric foundation created using your clipper.
