Make it yours.
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.
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.
Cut the left and right sides of section 4 to desired length, leaving the center long for now.
Blend section 3 into section 4 using an upward rocking motion.
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.
Use a preferred styling product to make hair on top of the head stand up.
