Shave hair from front to back.

Shave side to side.

After shaving from front to back, it’s time to work on the sides. Glide the clippers from side to side to ensure a clean and even buzz cut.

Apply product.

Some guys think they don’t need hair product if they have a buzz cut. That isn’t true. A lot of products are formulated to also help moisturize your scalp. Since the scalp is exposed with this type of haircut, it’s prone to dryness. Use a hair care product, like Axe Natural Look Softening Creamto massage hair (what’s left of it) and scalp.

Ed’s note: Other than wanting the look for its sexy and handsome appeal, a lot of men tend to get buzz cuts to handle their balding issues. This is a great option, but if you rather work with what you’ve got, you can also try your hand at learning how to style a receding hairline.
