How to cut your own hair – Military regulation fade haircut

Hi guys, today in this video I’m going to
be showing you how to give yourself a military regulation fade haircut. I’m gonna be using the Wahl color-coded system
and it’s just simple because you can’t get it wrong with all the different colors. They make it very, very simple. Make sure you have a some form of lubricant,
and or protectant for your equipment. I prefer this stuff called “Shaver Guard.” It smells really good, by the way. It just keeps your stuff nice- in a good working
order and this is optional, but I do recommend using a trimmer, something that gets a little
closer than these do, and I use a Remington trimmer for that. Make sure you – uh- just to start out, make
sure you have a nice, um set of mirrors so you can see what’s going on. I use the little one to look into the big
one. I’ll demonstrate that in a second, but um
the reason why I do this is because in the Marine Corps we have to have haircuts every single
Monday and that adds up really quickly. 8,9,10 dollars a week, with just a haircut,
not even including tips- so I bought this pair for about twenty bucks. I’ve had to buy two pairs, so this- this is my second
set in the past four years. So it’s really saved me a lot of money; it
cost my like 20 bucks- um but it’s a good skill because-ya know- I’ll never have to
pay for a haircut again, unless I want some crazy style- but even if you don’t want a
skin-fade, you can still just increase the numbers but go up from there, which that’ll
make more sense after I demonstrate my technique, here. So to start out, you’re gonna have the taper,
if you have it, set all the way as low as it’ll go. So you’re not gonna have any guards, what
we’re gonna be doing first is creating our baseline. That’s what everything is gonna go off of
and that sets the height of the fade, whether you want just a taper, or a low fade, medium
fade, high fade, high & tight, whatever you want. Okay, so when you finish that step you should
have a decently straight line and that is your guideline, your baseline, um i prefer
a medium fade, that’s what I’m doing in this video, but uh again the techniques are the
same no matter what level the fade is. Uh, so next we’re gonna take the Remington
trimmer and we’re just gonna cut everything just below that, so say this is our baseline,
we’re gonna go just right below, you don’t wanna touch it, because you’re gonna mess
up the fade, but if you just go right below it, you’re just gonna get a little bit closer
to the skin and it’s gonna look more like a skin-fade. Alright, so once you finish that step, you
should . . .you should have all the hair underneath the line, all the little hairs that were too
short for the big clippers to get. So, you also wanna have a brush, it helps
keep your equipment nice and clean it even helps when you’re done to get the hair off
your body. So, just a standard um body brush, or clipper
brush, I don’t know what you call it, but it really makes cleaning up much easier. So, the next step we’re going to take the
1. So these, uh these guards are in increments
of on. . uh ones. So, they have inches on there and millimeters,
but um they also have them with just a order number, if that makes sense, so like the one
is 1/8 of an inch, but it’s the number one for the set, if that makes sense. And then ya got the 2, which is 1/4 of an
inch, yeah, the two, which is 1/4 of an inch and 6 mm, but I don’t really- I really just
pay attention to the set numbers, 1,2,3,4. they have two numbers that are in the middle,
they have a 1/2, and they have a 1 1/2 – um this one doesn’t come in the set, someone
gave it to me, it matches the set, or fits it, but um you can also go in-between guards
with the taper so you have a 1 on there and you open up the taper guard, you’re at a 1
1/2. So just uh we’re gonna skip the 1/2 for now,
we’ll go back to it. We’re gonna take the 1, the red one in this
case and you’re gonna have the guards closed again so short as it can go, and your’re gonna
go to about an inch above that line, the baseline you made. Make sure you give yourself room to make the
fade with the 1/2 underneath it. I know when I was first starting out, I tended
to cramp up the lines and that’s uh -because I was scared I guess to go high, but you gotta
have room to do all this, don’t cramp it. So go nice and, nice and high above that line. So as you can see, there’s still a line there,
don’t worry I didn’t forget it. So now we’re gonna take the 1/2, the 1/16
of an inch and we’re gonna erase that line that we just created, the bottom one. Okay, now you’re gonna take the 1 again and
you’re gonna go up to a 1 1/2 so you take the 1 and go up with the taper lever. So 1, 1 1/2. Alright, here’s the final product and by following
these quick and easy steps, you too can be cutting your own hair, so you never have to
pay a barber again. Thanks for watching, and till next time.

    youve got some good skills man…especially considering those clippers. Thought about investing in cordless seniors and premium guards?

  2. noisound Posted on April 24, 2018 at 7:10 am

    watched this video a couple times only to realize a skin fade is required to blend trimmed skin to 0-guard to 1-guard (skin, 0, 1 lines). i tried to skip the skin fade but that was not a good idea trying to blend 0-guard to 1-guard (0, 1 lines, no "in between" line). as you mentioned in your video, the fade will mess up if you take the trimmer all the way up the baseline.

  3. meh Posted on May 1, 2018 at 12:59 pm

    1:39 it’s a good skill because you can cut ur buddies hair for $ or exchange a buzz for a buzz

  4. K Michael Posted on May 6, 2018 at 4:56 am

  5. Tony Stark Posted on May 8, 2018 at 4:13 am

    How do you cut the top?

  6. davva360 Posted on May 15, 2018 at 3:49 pm

    I need to figure out how to do the back of my own. I always ask my wife to check it but she doesn't really like doing it.

  7. Endless Menace Posted on May 15, 2018 at 7:47 pm

  16. David Griffith Posted on June 27, 2018 at 9:27 pm

  20. Grace 413 Posted on September 6, 2018 at 11:50 pm

    Thank you! Just gave my husband a Military haircut for the first time and it came out perfect. He’s very happy. Great tutorial!

  21. h1952m Posted on September 16, 2018 at 11:38 am

    Thanks for the nice video!

  22. Ορθοδοξία ή Θάνατος Posted on September 29, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    Excellent job! Thanks for sharing!

  23. Peedinkus Posted on October 6, 2018 at 2:05 am

    No such thing as a "military regulation fade haircut".

  24. Aryn Jefferis Posted on October 6, 2018 at 2:41 pm

    Are the 2,3,4,5 closed or open?

  25. Bright Posted on October 18, 2018 at 10:41 pm

    Love the video and if you served, thank you for your service! Do you think this could be fitting for my 11 year old son? If not do you have any suggestions as to what would? His hair is so long and he needs a nice short change like this.

  26. Nehemías Pedret Antón Posted on October 23, 2018 at 5:29 am

    Is the cordless whal better quality or is the same?

  27. tnj50 Posted on November 24, 2018 at 12:28 pm

    Interesting technique of holding your ear down with both trimmer & clipper. Very simple, easy to understand–great vid!

  28. nottix Posted on December 3, 2018 at 8:50 pm

    This is really helpful, simple, and straightforward. Helped me get over the fear of messing my hair up. Never know until you try, wish me luck.

  29. Paul Purcell Posted on December 7, 2018 at 11:31 pm

    Awesome tutorial, I just bought the Wahl Color Pro Clipper set recently, so excited to give this a go. I like your cut measurements, but may try a 1 on the sides and back and taper up from there, and maybe later try the closer skin fade layer-pattern.

  30. Patrick Schwerdtfeger Posted on December 18, 2018 at 9:20 pm

    just cut mine, came out pretty darn good. It really helps to have that second mirror on the wall.

  31. Justin Martin Posted on December 20, 2018 at 11:41 pm

    If you're doing this for the first time, I would suggest not making that first guide line above the temple. That way you don't find yourself going too high. 🙂

  32. Marlon Bravo Posted on January 4, 2019 at 3:53 am

    I'll give this a try when my terrible haircut grows back.

  34. Cowboy Gemini Posted on January 28, 2019 at 8:06 am

    Lol things we do in the military to save a dime, I still cut my own hair the same way since …..that fade is perfect .

  35. Kyle S Posted on February 3, 2019 at 11:26 pm

    This is probably THE best way to show someone new how to cut their own hair (in a fade). Sometimes I come back and watch just to admire the quality.

  36. James Robert Posted on February 27, 2019 at 4:37 pm

    Damn, this dude is good!
    I usually end up bold!

  37. BLICKEY YT Posted on March 1, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    what typa hand mirror is that

  38. Brandon West Posted on March 6, 2019 at 3:07 am

    Are these the numbers in order for the fade? I'm confused from 2-5. 0, 1 , .5, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5. Thanks

  39. Elizabeth Davis Posted on March 11, 2019 at 10:06 pm

    Thank you so much for taking the time to make this video. This is the second I’ve used it to cut my husband’s hair. It is now saved for future references lol.

  40. GG Posted on March 16, 2019 at 10:15 pm

    Thanks a lot! Very helpful

  41. Steve Posted on March 20, 2019 at 4:47 am

    Damn good job! Every Monday??? Impressive. I spent 24 years in the Army, deployed with 24th MEU in Somalia if I recall. Never felt safer with the Marines on the perimeter….
    I am 54 and am tired of wasting time waiting for a a haircut, and to pay a crap load more than 10 bucks!
    Thanks…I will give it a try and see how it goes.
    Thank you for your service! Many of us out here truly appreciate it….

  42. Pixelated Icon Posted on March 21, 2019 at 4:26 pm

  48. Aryn Jefferis Posted on March 30, 2019 at 10:27 pm

    For the 2, 3, 4, etc. Is the clipper open or closed?

  49. Lex Beltran Posted on April 3, 2019 at 12:01 am

    I've been cutting my own hair now for 2.5 yrs. My hair grows pretty fast so I do a one setting for a buzz cut. Saved tons of money cutting it myself😀😀😀

  50. nasa Posted on April 10, 2019 at 11:19 pm

    Huge money saver. Great job!

  54. King Pando Posted on April 17, 2019 at 6:11 am

    Excellent talented man

  55. Steve Posted on April 17, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    Hey Tim…two haircuts into this after getting a rechargeable hair clipper set and a tri-fold mirror. I will never go to a barber again! My wife and I have blast while she drinks wine, watching me hack away!:) Every once in a while, there would be the extra "cut" of the clippers, and you could hear and feel it. She would start laughing, and I would look for the damage! My dad always said…"Difference between a good haircut, and a bad haircut…is about three days!" Thanks for the inspiration, and continue to lean forward in the "foxhole" of life!

  56. Pedro Segura Posted on April 20, 2019 at 6:41 am

  60. Anthony Posted on April 21, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    I'm gonna nominate you for a NAM lol

  61. Colonel Kurtz Posted on April 23, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    Shame you guys have to pay or cut your own hair, i mean being as you serve your country the LEAST they could do is make a contract with a few barber shops to get those cuts done free for you guys, also creates business for the barbers so win win situation!
    Take care of your troops!!!

  62. Eddie Pizarro Posted on May 2, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    Damn clean ass fade I pay $30 for mine and it doesn’t look this good

  63. DT Films Posted on May 3, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    My barber can’t even do it that good

  64. Sam Brown Posted on May 4, 2019 at 9:15 pm

    Nice cut dude. Did a short cut similar to this after watching.
    Still need better clippers though, I didn't go too short on the sides cause my fade wouldn't be perfect

  65. jav alv Posted on May 5, 2019 at 11:38 am

    Bla, bla, bla, bla.

  66. Russell Bogrett Posted on May 13, 2019 at 4:27 pm

    I was a military barber for 20 years. There are military barbers who are not the best at regs. Part of the reason a man comes to the barbershop is for the haircut but the other reasonnis to relax and chill out a little.

  67. Seananon Eggar Posted on May 14, 2019 at 6:06 am

    You sir are a king among men! Saving me a ton of money, looks super pro, great DIY tutorial. Mass kudos!

  68. some guy Posted on May 20, 2019 at 11:28 pm

    I just yolo'd this without the proper mirror set up for the back and it turned out pretty decent. Thanks for the video

  79. bodean2000 Posted on July 6, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    Excellent fade. Been cutting my own hair for about 25 years now and I have an adjustable hight mirror on a pole that makes things much easier.

  80. Lieu Falcon Posted on July 10, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    It starts at 2:30 for all the high speed individuals.

  81. Joshoewa Simpsun Posted on July 11, 2019 at 2:32 pm

    As a 17 year old in the army id much rather have a mediocre hair cut by my punk ass self and spend my money on bangs and caffeine pills. 10/10 would steal guidons for you.

  82. mcfishing Posted on July 12, 2019 at 7:57 pm

    Best tutorial so far to do it at home the other that "teach you" have all this fancy machines you keep it simple

  83. Archie Roberts Posted on July 12, 2019 at 9:07 pm

    What do you do for the top
    Do you use clippers? If so what length?

  84. Kukson Garage Posted on July 17, 2019 at 9:11 pm

    What about cutting top of head? Also by yourself?

  88. Ed Posted on August 6, 2019 at 9:06 pm

    I find there's a very noticeable gap between the Wahl #1 open and #2. It should blend in perfectly but I've had to order the #1.5 to see if that works.

  94. azmanmdsalleh2009 Posted on August 31, 2019 at 1:16 pm

    back in my service years I really hate those fading hair coz not all looks great from that fashion and I'm one of em but if you can't follow it might as well quit the army.

  95. azmanmdsalleh2009 Posted on August 31, 2019 at 1:19 pm

    but then this video does help me to make my trip fortnightly to the barber 10 years ago…..

  96. azmanmdsalleh2009 Posted on August 31, 2019 at 1:21 pm

    great effort mr gassman thank you although it does me no good literally but in some way it might helpful to others….so that's what life is about..
