Transcript:How to Create a Textured Short Men's Hairstyle
Hello, I'm Lincoln Snyder from Epicenter in Portland, Oregon and I'm here for About.com. This is how you get a short textured haircut for men.
What You'll Need to Do a Short Textured Haircut for Men
You want to start out with clean towel-dried washed hair, and I put some cutting solution on before to keep the hair evenly wet during the cut. The tools you'll need are regular shears, thinning shears, a feather razor, some t-edge clippers and various combs.
How to Cut a Short Textured Cut
You want to find the round of the head and part there. Section the front, top from the bottom. I typically like to start right behind the ear working up with scissor over comb making sure your scissors and your comb move at the same rate of speed. You want to gradually build weight from the bottom to the top so just do the right side of the head just like you did the left. Make sure the top isn't dried out by misting a little water on it.
So you have a Mohawk section that's about a half inch down the middle. And we are going to create a guideline with our feather razor. So start at your longest point, determine how long you want this point in the front first. Measure then cut. Make sure that its going to go back in a smooth angle from front to back.
So now we want to go through and tighten edges with thin comb and trimmers. So this also can be the short textured hair. Basically you don't want this to be smooth liked that. Rake your fingers through to give it texture and piece it out a little bit and you've got a short textured men's hair style.
