Top Tips

One of the most popular techniques for cutting and trimming men’s hair is the scissor over comb method. This comb can also be used for clipper over comb work, but it is primarily aimed at scissor work. It’s a fundamental skill to master, it provides an even, consistent cut, and is ideal for removing significant amounts of thick hair. A variety of different finishes to this cut are possible. Depending on the size of the blade or clipper you are using. And the amount of time you put into practising of course. The right size scissor and comb will depend on the area of the head you are working on, as well as the hair’s length and texture. By cutting hair evenly at the exterior, this technique encourages hair to grow out evenly and last as long as possible.

The cutting comb should be held in the less dominant hand and used to lift hair at a 90 degree angle away from the scalp. The barber can then hold the scissors in the dominant hand and move up the comb, cutting off the hair sticking out beyond the comb’s teeth. For a tapered effect, with long hair at the top and short hair at the bottom, the comb will need to be angled.

We suggest that you perform scissor over comb technique on dry or slightly damp hair for best results. Wet hair can potentially clump and result in an uneven cut.
