Let’s go so the first one we guy has the dirt feed this is a tapered style cut with a comb-over and a part we taper the bottom you know either a1 to a2 to a3 dingo only up to the point even though different companies have different sizes.

There’s a general standard for clipper guide numbers generally the clipper guard number represents the number of 1/8 inches of hair left on the head lower number of clipper guards leave less hair on the head a higher number of clipper guards be more hair on the head.

The number 1 guard leaves 1/8 length of the hair on the head the number 2 guard leaves 1/4 limp the number 3 guard this 3/8 list the number 4 guard bees 1 half its length of the hair on the head did you notice a difference between the taper anything a tape restorer set short hair wears or thin starts at skin here.

We have the skin drop feed one of my favourites is real smooth and easy to do start off skinning it fall you want to go from a 0 to a 1 to a 2 and feed it all the way up to your pump so in this next photo we got here is the taper fade with long hair this fade right here is one of my favourite fades.

What are they called behind Brooke was ask somebody with Brooklyn, yeah so you know a lot of cats instead of getting a full-on fade they just want to get the Brooklyn which just tapers the edges a little bit you know I want my own tapered I usually want to get a higher taper so I’ll call it – hi Brooke this is some different terminology right anywhere else they just say give me a temple thing that’s it so to make this ha Brooke.

I want to brush it out where I’m going to do most of my work out so I got my outline of twos here and I’m just gonna start to make a small thing maybe booties all day long down the feel of it he just called temple things those are the cons here but the hi Brooke is funny that’s different to me what I got now it’s just like 50 Matt in calibre great the tapering ball tapering and trimming critique you the top.
