Joi Rooks' Clipper Tips for a Refined Rockabilly

Monday, 19 October 2015 18:44

Men's grooming is becoming an art form, it has definitely evolved. Stylists in the salon must be able to offer grooming to male clients – from facial hair to options in haircuts, color and styling. 

Male clients should be taken just as seriously as their female counterparts. Being successful in men’s grooming is based on two factors: the consultation (based on face shape, lifestyle and hair texture) and honing in on the craft of clipper cutting, as well as shears.

I use to be a stylist that would only use my shears or a razor on men's haircuts, but now I have upgraded my clippers and have learned some new techniques. This has really elevated what I can offer my male clientele,” says Joi Rooks, owner of fresche salon (Atlanta, GA).

Clipper Tips
– Start with a larger guard and work down to smaller.
– Decide how high on the head you want to go with the undercut first and cut up to that point with the larger guard.
– Keeping the hairline natural and cut close with the smallest guard, it looks more updated than squaring it off.

Spend time refreshing and upgrading clipper skills and it will shine through in consultations as CONFIDENCE!
