  • 1

    Select guide comb number 2 or number 3 for your Wahl clipper. Begin in front of the ear, blending sections 1 and 2 as you move around the head. When working over the ears, bend them down and out of the way so you can easily cut the hair.

  • 2

    Continue cutting the hair at the nape of the neck. Cut up to section 3 but do not cut the Faux Hawk section on top of the head.

  • 3

    Cut the left and right sides of section 4 to desired length, leaving the center long for now.

  • 4

    Blend section 3 into section 4 using an upward rocking motion.

  • 5

    Trim the hair in the center of section 4 using your clipper and guide combs 2 or 3. Then push the hair up and away from the head.

  • 6

    Use a preferred styling product to make hair on top of the head stand up.
