General hair cutting information
• The hair should be clean, well combed, tangle-free and dry.
• If you are not used to clipping hair, begin with a higher setting and then
reduce the setting to avoid cutting more hair than desired.
• Use a slow and controlled movement. Do not force the clipper through
the hair faster than the clipper can cut it.
• In between, shake or blow off the hair from the clipper. If too much hair is
caught in the distance comb, remove it.
• To control your progress during clipping, regularly comb the hair in the
style desired.
