Mid-Fade Pompadour

You will need


WAHL Cordless Senior, Cordless Detailer and Finale

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.
Step 6
Taper the sides and top of the haircut to desired shape with clipper over comb, then blow dry and style as required.
