Sometimes, a conservative look is needed or preferred. In those cases, the Business haircut is ideal. The hair is cut with a taper on the sides and back, with enough hair left on top to part and comb to the side or push back from the forehead. Have fun and be all business at the same time!

Make it yours.

    Using your Wahl clipper, select a guide comb that will shorten the hair but not leave it too short. Number 5 is a frequent selection. If you find that the hair should be cut shorter after the first or second pass, change to a lower numbered guide comb.

    Using an upward, rocking motion, cut around the ear and then continue to the back of the head, all the way to the other ear. Comb the hair as you go. It will give you a better idea of how the hair naturally lies.

  • 3

    Switch to a higher guide comb (a number 8 works well) for the top of the head. From the back, comb the hair to see how it naturally falls. Begin to cut, rolling the clipper from front to back to help cut down on bulk.

    Now blend the sides, using the rolling technique over the ridge of the head where the sides meet the top.

  • 5

    Using your Wahl trimmer or the inverted clipper technique, trim the neckline and arches.
