Clipper Class at Branford Academy For Hair & Cosmetology

March, Branford Academy hosted a Clipper Class for their students, where guest teacher, barber Tim Dawson, came to teach students how to use clippers, trimmers, and a straight edge razor. Since the focus turned to men’s hair for this class, it was very helpful to have a barber’s point of view!

Students also had the opportunity to learn how to do an edge up, as well as a fade. An edge up is done in order to create a neater, more shapely, straighter hairline. This effect is accomplished by using a T edge blade, and is a fairly difficult skill to master.

A fade, on the other hand, is when a man’s hair is longer on the top, and becomes shorter towards the bottom. This is done by using clippers with different guard sizes.
