Many people when cutting hair with scissors tend to select a section of hair and cut it horizontally from the head. The problem when doing this is that the hair, when laid down, will not sit correctly across the clipped section. This results in the scissor cuts looking odd and out of place, as they do not create a uniform look in line with the neatly trimmed section. In learning how to cut men’s hair with scissors, this is one of the most important professional techniques you can learn!
As Casey demonstrates in this video, the key is to do what is called point cutting, or notch cutting. In summary you hold the hair away from the head and ‘notch’ the hair on an angle, and continue to do so until the hair is at the desired length. Whilst it may seem like this would create an inconsistent result, in actual fact the opposite is true. When the hair is combed down, you will see you have a beautifully consistent blend with the section you have styled with your hair clippers for men.
