HOW TO: Mid Fade Pompadour

Step 1

Put in first guideline with the Wahl Cordless Detailer, following the natural curve of the head. Create a second guide line with the Wahl Cordless Senior grade 1 up to the temple peak, bringing it low at the back beneath the occipital bone.


Step 2

Use the 1.5 grade of the Wahl Cordless Senior and erase the top line by using a rubbing technique with the blade flush to the scalp.

Step 3

Use the 0.5 grade of the Wahl Cordless Senior to erase the bottom line, opening and closing the
taper arm. Work on this line only all the way round.

Step 4

Use the taper arm of the Wahl Cordless Detailer to blend away between the 0 and 0.5, switching between open and close.

Step 5

Finish the edges of the haircut with the Wahl Finale using paintbrush motions, ensuring a smooth blend. If lines persist to show, try using the finale with the grain to get a softer finish over those hard to blend areas.

Taper the sides and top of the haircut to desired shape with clipper over comb, then blow dry and style as required.
