Some of the best barbers in the world use clippers to do fades. They will either use a metal clipper guard or they will use the freehand method by using the clipper over comb technique. Clipper over comb is the preferred way because it is more precise and will not pick up the under lying head shape.Using the clipper over comb technique allows the barbers to create the desired shape and also encourages the hair to grow out nicely and last as long as possible. When visible lines in a fade are present it is caused by a barbers who works from the bottom of the head to the top. This is what is referred to as “chasing the line.” In actuality, the barbers ends up moving the fade line up the head. At Nic Grooming, the barbers do their fades the old school way. They start from the top and work their way down the head or use clipper over comb technique. This is the only way to avoid a visible line. The barbers at Nic Grooming use Oster clippers , which are known as the best clippers in the industry. To receive a quality haircut, we recommend checking us out at Nic Grooming Barber shop today.
