A regular haircut is a men’s and boy’s hairstyle that has combable length on top, a defined or deconstructed side part, and a short, semi-short, medium, long, or extra long back and sides.
• Taper vs Fade: There isn’t much difference between these terms. A fade is when the hair becomes shorter until it reaches your skin. A taper involves longer hair and doesn’t necessarily have to be cut as short as a fade.
• Undercut Fade: Usually this involves having longer hair on the top of your head, whilst the back and sides are cut extremely short.
• Haircut Grades: Grades are the different lengths that you can get your hair cut too. For instance, a number 3 haircut is shorter than a number 4 haircut.
• Neckline: The neckline is important, make sure the barber shows you how high they’re cutting it and whether it’s flat or in a V.
• Texture/Layers: Texture is the look that your hair has depending on thickness, the amount of curl and how it’s cut. A layered texture generally involves cutting certain areas of your hair shorter so longer hair rests on top.
• Thinning: Thinning is useful if you have particularly thick hair. Usually done with a pair of thinning scissors, it is the process of removing weight from your hair to make it more manageable.
