MFH says

This is a more stylised take on a classic buzz. With a 1 fade into a longer top, it’s a great way to show that you still care about your look. It will take a barber slightly longer but it looks really great!

  • Clipper grade 1 on the back and sides.
  • Fade up to a grade 2 (- 3) on the top.
  • Using clippers, either go for one length all over or you can fade up to a longer length on top.
  • If you don’t want to have a complete buzz cut all over, start from a grade 0 on the neck and work up to a grade 2 or 3 on top.
  • Neaten the neckline, using detailers to remove any stray hairs.
