Usage Tips
Giving a Comfortable, Even Cut
Allow the clipper to cut through the hair without moving it too quickly. Moving
the clipper too quickly may create a pulling sensation. Use short strokes when
cutting, and initially use the longest trimming guide. You can always use a closer
trimming guide later if you want a closer cut.
How to Give a Haircut
1. Start at the back of the head. Holding the clipper as shown,
lightly stroke upward making sure you are taking off the
desired amount of hair. Work your way up to the crown
of the head in layers. When completed, comb the area to
remove any loose hair and to determine whether you need
any further cutting.
2. Repeat the same procedure for each side of the head. Make
sure the length of the hair is trimmed to the same length on
both sides of the head.
3. To cut the hair at the top of the head, hold the hair between
your fingers and cut a small amount at a time. Cut from the
front to the back.
4. The final trim can be made with the hair clipper or the
included scissors. Make sure to check over the entire head
for any uneven areas. For styled hair or giving quick trims,
you may prefer using your hair clipper without the trimming
5. The adjustable taper control lever allows you to
gradually change the closeness of your cut, either
with or without a trimming guide. When the lever
is fully forward the blades will give you the closest
cut. Moving the lever gradually backward increases
the cut length.
Very short styles
1. Using the 1/2” (12mm) trimming guide, hold the comb flat
against the head and move the hair clipper from the back of
the neck to the crown of the head.
2. Cut in a similar manner from the side to the top of the head.
Then cut from the front to the crown of the head.
3. If a “Flat Top” style is desired, remove the trimming guide
and use a barber’s comb. Trim a little at a time until a flat
look is achieved.
Before Cutting Hair
1. Make sure your hair clipper is runnning smoothly, with a slight vibration.
2. Place a cape around the neck of the person whose hair is being trimmed or cut.
3. This person should be seated so that the top of their head is at your eye level.
4. Comb the hair as it is normally styled.
5. Comb out all knots and tangles.
6. Ensure the hair is dry. Hair clippers perform best with dry
hair, making it easier to see how much hair is being cut.
7. Hold the hair clipper in the palm of one hand with your
thumb resting firmly on the top of the hair clipper. This
grip provides comfortable cutting control. Although the hair
clipper may be used with the left or right hand, using it right-
handed allows you to access the taper lever more easily.
To Attach Trimming Guides
1. Select the trimming guide that matches the length you
want the hair to be after the cut. The trimming guides are
numbered and marked with 1/8” (3mm), 1/4” (6mm), 3/8”
(9mm), and 1/2” (12mm).
2. While the clipper is off, hold the trimming guide with the
teeth up. Slide the trimming guide onto the blades until it
locks into place.
