How To Cut The Sides And Back With Scissors | Graduation | Beginner Barber Haircut Tutorial

hello everyone and welcome to another
video from Rum Barber this is a haircut that I did in the shop last week my
customer wants to start growing his hair but a previous haircut he got whilst
abroad has left them with some unwanted width and bulk at the sides I want to
keep the length at the top but reduce the weight at the sides to give him a more
manageable style while growing it before we start this tutorial I just want to
say a special thank you to everyone that has been sharing our videos on their
Instagram stories recently this has really helped the channel grow and we
really really appreciate it so thank you very much before we begin we’re going to
section the hair these sections will act as a guide to help us work throughout
the haircut taking a little time to do this now will make things easier as we
go along here is a guide to some of the terminology that we will be using in
this video on the top we’ve divided the hair into three triangular sections the
first area is the hair we are keeping and we will not be cutting this section
areas 2 & 3 will be used to connect the top to the sides at the crown area we
have a fourth triangular section this will act as a guide for the direction of
our sections as we work down towards the nape here are those sections on the
customers head normally I start the side graduation
with a diagonal back section for this type of haircut however this time I
want to show you a slightly different way I’m going to give myself a guide to
cut too by taking a thin section of hair and pulling this directly out from the
head and parallel to the top section I will cut the hair at a length that sits
back nicely in this case it’s about two inches and I will follow this all the
way back to the occipital bone you can see that the initial sections I put in
at the top acts as a guide to help me establish the shape this is the guide length we will be
working from just below the temple area I will take a diagonal back section and
cut a line about 1 fingers depth in length at the temple area I will take
another section parallel to this and cut a similar line I will take a third section and do the
same I am counting these sections so that I can repeat this process on the
other side which will help me create balance by the fourth section I’m starting to
catch my guideline that I cut at the beginning I can use this guideline as a
starting point for each section as I work through out the sides and into the
back by the time I reach the nape my fingers
are tight to the head as I want the hair here to be quite close here you can see the shape we have felt
throughout the sides and back I’m not going to show you the second side being
cut as I don’t want to make this video too long though I will show you the
guideline being cut for the rest just repeat the exact same steps as we used
on the first side to connect the top to the sides release
sections 2 & 3 from the initial top sections pull the hair directly out from
the head and slightly downwards and cut to the length of the first guide at the
parietal Ridge and do the same on the other side at the crown take a diagonal
section of a fingers depth back from the original guide line pull the hair across
and cut to the previously cut section work through the crown area section by
section until there’s no more hair to cut repeat this process on the other side with our shape complete I will dry the
hair before we work on the edges when the hair is dry I will refine the edges
using trimmer over comb just to help the hair blend into the beard I didn’t get a
chance to actually fix the beard as I was running a little late because of the
filming to style I apply some texturising powder
which will help me control the hair and here’s the finished look I hope you
