Andis Education delivers with this mid-fade undercut
Shorter hair on clients with a petite frame can be beautifully classic while still showing off an outer strength. This mid-fade undercut delivers not only a sleek look that accentuates fine features, but also fierce face-framing with loads of texture and movement achieved with slightly different styling. Create this style using the Andis Supra ZR II Clipper with CeramicEdge size one blade and the Andis Slimline Pro Li Trimmer.
Step 1 Lightly spritz hair and section off the parietal ridge to ensure a balanced shape.
Step 2 Start the cut on your dominant side – create a guide. Cut to the top of the ear.
Step 3 Taper the hair lower while removing length and bulk.
Step 4 Refine your blend by tilting the head forward and using the c-stroke technique.
Step 5 Refine each panel prior to moving to the next.
Step 6 Pull the ear down to connect the front to the back using your guide. Make sure to comb hair after each cut to refine.
Step 7 Part hair down the middle to ensure a symmetrical balance and pull hair taught to connect the transition vertically.
Step 8 Create pie-shaped 90-degree sections throughout the crown. Then, point-cut to create movement in the hair.
Step 9 Use the Andis Slimline Pro Li trimmer to blend from skin to hair for a seamless transition.
Step 10 Clean up any additional stray hairs.
Step 11 Using a quick c-stroke motion, or fanning technique, helps eliminate a line of demarcation. Make sure to always use one hand to stabilize the head while cutting.
