2. Trim the Edges

To prep the edges of your haircut, you will need to lighten up the edges around your hair. Next, you will need to add liquid razor to the edges. Liquid razor helps keep your hair in place when the vibrations of your clippers blow your hair around.

3. Visualize Your Hairline

The next thing you will need to do is use your imagination to cut the perfect hairline. While looking at your reflection in the mirror, you need to get a mental idea of a line wrapping around your head. To avoid pushing your hairline too far back, visualize the line to be as forward as possible. You can even mark the area with eyeliner to make things easier.

5. Check Your Work

Now that you have done the clipping, it’s time to use your rhino comb to measure the different areas of your lineup so that you can edge them up to be as symmetrically balanced as possible. You will also need to make sure that the left side of your line up is a mirror image of the right side
