    Step 1

    I've had my undercut for a while, but I'll show you how to do it anyways.

    Step 2

    Part your hair exactly how far back you want it in a straight line, making a 90 degree angle at the end of the part. Pin back the rest of your hair.

    Step 3

    Really think, do I really want to do this? Am I ready for this type of commitment? Remember that hair this is a long term commitment. If you answered "yes" to ALL of these questions, proceed.

    Step 4

    Decide on the length of the undercut hair you want it to be by determining which guard to use.

    Step 5

    Take the chunk of hair and cut it off to be about 2 inches long. Don't worry about it being even, just keep it longer and away from the scalp.

    Step 6

    Oil clippers, snap on the guard, and turn it on.

    Step 7

    Begin buzzing. Hold it straight and keep it in line with your parts.

    Step 8

    This is what it SHOULD look like when you're done.

    Step 9

    Trim any missed hair. (I apologize for the blurry picture!)

    Now, go dress up and show off your new do!
