How do I order a regular haircut at Supercuts?

Take a photo to help describe the style. I honestly don't know exactly what style is meant by: ';regular haircut.'; Could be anything from an ivy league to a layered longer style, that only partly covers the ears and collar. One person's idea of a regular haircut is not necessarily the same as another persons. If a guy wants the edge at the nape tapered to the skin, or any tapering on the middle section of the back/sides, he is usually better off going to an experienced barber. At inexpensive pod mall uni-sex salons, the general idea of a regular haircut is to trim the back and sides all one length with a clipper guard attached to a clipper, then cut the top with shears. The general idea of a crew cut is to in addition cut the top with a guarded clipper pressed to the scalp. This isn't a crew cut at all but a butch cut. Classic barbers never use clipper guards. It is strictly freehand with a clipper or clipper/shears over comb.鈥?/a>

Some barbers describe an ivy league as a crew cut just long enough to be parted and combed to the side, if so desired. An ivy league can also be worn with the hair brushed up off the forehead to form the short pomp front, or with the short bangs brushed down on the forehead like a forward brush cut.

Grooming any of the short pomp styles- crew cut, ivy league, flat top crew cut- is basically the same and takes about a minute or two.

1) Towel dry hair.

2) Barely dip fingertips in jar of wax.

3)Transfer wax to palms.

4) Smooth palms over hair.

5)Brush hair off forehead to form short pomp front.

Whichever style you decide on, be sure to take a photo to help describe the desired haircut to the barber or stylist.

Good Luck!
