However, for those who can’t or don’t want to hire a hairdresser, it’s incredibly easy to get the job done at home using a hair trimmer. Using hair clippers is a really simple way to have your hair cut!

sharpen hair clipper bladesUsing hair trimmers that have not been sharpened to cut hair is very difficult. Dull trimmers tug at your subject’s hair while you cut the hair, leaving uneven and possibly even jagged cut lines, even if the most experienced hairdresser is making the cut. Although it is possible to prevent hair clippers from going dull, these things happen, meaning that you will need to sharpen the trimmers yourself.

Firstly, you’ll need to remove your clippers’ top blade. To do this, remove the screws holding the blade in place. Next, brush the hair, dirt and other debris sitting on this blade. Wipe the blade clean using a cloth. Now, dust your blade’s inside using the cloth, making sure that you remove all of what is sitting inside the mechanism.

Hair clipper attachments sit nicely against your subject’s head and ensures that all hair is cut at a similar length. Longer attachments mean longer hair cuts.
