Haircuts around the ears create a polished and professional look. While a stylist is the best choice for this type of cutting, it's easy to do at home. Just get a pair of good scissors (not kitchen scissors), some clippers, and a comb. If your client has long hair, spray their hair with water to help them keep it straight while you cut.

If your client has short hair, start by identifying their natural or preferred parting. Then, comb out their hair and brush up a small section, a bit from the ear. Hold this section between two fingers. Snip above this point to create a guideline for your haircut. Repeat this process on the other side of their head.

You can also use a clipper guard to help you create the right shape around the ears. This is especially helpful with bob haircuts. Smaller number guards close the cut very closely, while higher numbers leave more length. You can experiment with different guards to find the one that's best for your client's desired style.

Getting the perfect haircut around the ears can make or break your whole look. Whether you want to give yourself a more polished appearance at work or you need to look great for a formal event, trimming your hair around the ears is essential. If you're not sure what look is right for you, consult with a stylist or find inspiration online to determine which look will flatter your face shape and hair texture.
