Buzz, Burr, or Butch Cut
Each of these cuts requires the same basic technique; the difference in obtaining this look is only in clipper size. Varying from #00000 to #3.75, the hair is cut using a single size of clipper to have all the hair cut at the same length (usually 1/8 inch or shorter).
This term describes a conservative, shorter haircut.
This hairstyle is made by tapering the cut on the back and sides, with a longer length left on top of the head. Hair above the ears and near the hairline is cut with clipper #3.75. Typically, the hair length in this area can be 1/2 inch in length and then gradually faded using shears up to two inches long on the top. The back can be tapered or cut straight across.
This haircut allows for various hairstyles and parting options from either side or pushed straight back. Styling products will help finish the individual look.
For this cut, the hair on the sides and back are usually cut in a short taper. The hair on the top is cut by blow drying it straight up and then cut to the desired length with a special comb to make a very flat appearance.
High and Tight (Military haircuts)
The sides and back of this haircut are extremely short, either clipped almost to the skin or shaved with a razor all the way up to the crown of the head. The top of this haircut is very short, as well.
A long haircut can be cut at one length, to trim the dead ends, or made with layers.
Also known as a “pot cut” or “mushroom cut”, the bowl cut has a distinct look. The hair is cut short on the back and sides of the head as if someone put a ‘bowl’ on the head and cut the hair hanging below it.
Medium haircuts come in a variety of lengths and shapes: from the classic taper to modern texture. Check with your stylist for available variations.
Also known as the “Temple Fade” or “Brooklyn Fade”, this is a hairstyle that gained popularity in early 2000s.
The hair is faded at the hairline from 1/2 inch to 1 inch. The rest of the hair at the top is left the same length, usually 1-2 inches depending on the preferences of the client.
Always discuss your haircut with your stylist. If you have a specific style in mind (such as a traditional crew or buzz cut), feel free to request it but understand these styles can be interpreted slightly differently from one stylist to another, so be as specific as possible. It isn’t the haircutting instruments that matter, it is only the final result that is most important.
