Bald Fade

The term “fade” originated in ethnic shops and has now become the popular term for an aggressively tight taper. Hair at the sides and back is cut as close as possible with clippers and “fades” or tapers up into almost any length on top. In some cases this haircut is mistakenly called a “military reg,” which is misleading because each branch of the service has different regulations regarding hair length.


Straight Razor Shave

having is done with the blade at approximately an angle of thirty degrees to the skin and in a direction perpendicular to the edge, an incision requires the movement of the blade to be sideways or in a direction parallel to the edge. These circumstances are always avoided by the shaver, who always shaves in a direction perpendicular to the cutting edge of the blade.



Classic Taper. Commonly referred to as a short business man’s cut or graduation. The hair is left long enough to comb on top and gradually tapers down to 1/8 inch around the ears and the neck. This is a very traditional men’s cut that is appropriate for any lifestyle.


Custom Designs

Tramlines (or channelling). Tramlines are a simple form of channelling (a technique used to create complex lines and shapes in the hair) where lines are created in the hair using an electric trimmer with the edge of the blade against the scalp.
