On the video, “Precision Clipper Cutting #2–regular (tapered) haircuts”, I demonstrated and explained a kind of clipper over comb cutting called “stepping out” cutting. This cutting method is an excellent way to get a lot of longer bulky hair cut off as quickly as possible. The following things were touched on in the video, but more emphasis is worthwhile:
1. Only those who can sit very still get this kind of cutting. This rules out children under the age of four, and most children from four to seven or eight. Even adults who are animated in their conversation are not good candidates for this cutting method.
2. After using the stepping out method to cut up through the hair, go over the same area a second time. This second stepping out cutting will get rid of any “stragglers” left from the first cuts you’ve made. Unlike the first time, no major amount of hair is cut, just some “smoothing off” happens.
3. For an extra precise cutting, a scissors and comb could be used to smooth off stragglers following the stepping out cutting. Here you would comb out and grasp the hair with the holding fingers pointing downward in a vertical position–use the scissors to cut off any unevenness.
Use the “stepping out” cutting method–it will make you a BETTER and FASTER haircutter.
THAT AIN’T LOVE
Love of one’s country which is not part of love for humanity is not love, but idolatrous worship.
