Seriously? It's not like Lost or anything. The numbers are just an indication of height. It's a setting on clippers.

^ That.

I don't do fades or anything like that. I know how I like my hair so I know exactly what guards to ask for.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

I think it's univerasal for black people to go in and tell them what numbers they want. How else would you go about it?

Good lookin' out, I thought that's what dude meant by the numbers (height settings). I didn't know what they meant because I've never got my haircut that way before; I've pretty much asked for fades my entire life.

j/w, how do you know what heights to choose? How do you know how it will look when the barber finishes?

My barber asks me if I want to take any off when I get a fade, and I normally just ask for him to take a little off, I don't use the numbers. Sometimes I'll ask for a fade and he doesn't ask, but he always comes correct lol.

I read about the 8 on top, 7 on sides, 7 on back tapered into a 6 on the bottom of the back, so I asked for it. I have had those numbers before, so I knew what it would look like. Just ask the person who cuts your hair how long it will be after using an 8 on it, or whatever number you choose. The 8/7/6 set-up I got this last time is pretty short.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

Generally, I'll ask for a high number (which, to me, is like a 2 or 3) first if I haven't been in a while. Then I'll just take it down from there until I'm satisfied.

I don't know what you mean by tape.

It's an 8 on the top, 7 on the sides and back, and then on the back I had her taper it into a 6 on the bottom. Google Tom Ford, he has the same haircut, you could get a good idea of the length from that.

you know what i notice? my hair looks a lot better when i don't shampoo it for a few days, then when i put shampoo in that bitch it looks fucking amazing. as for the cut, i usually just get a 4 or a 3, then let it grow out for a few weeks, repeat the process.

Can someone please post some nice haircuts for people with curly hair? My hair is really curly and dry(fucking sucks) and I've been wondering what to do with it for the longest time >_>... Some products to make it less frizzy/dry would be nice too.
