How to Look Fresh Between Barber Visits

Learn how to look like you just came from the barbershop with simple tips from Cut Lab.

When it comes to getting your hair to look “fresh from the shop” everyday, the struggle is real. Ususally because you’re real busy.

It’s a struggle, that is, if you don’t have a few tools to take you from an over grown mess to elegantly edged.

Rahman Mcdually, the owner of Cut Lab, shared his best kept barber tips to looking kept when you haven’t seen your barber in a while.

According to Mcdually, you need to get a solid, professional cut in the first place! Simply put, it makes it easier to follow the example of an expert when you begin fixing your hair at home.


If you plan on looking debonair for a few weeks, you’re going to need in-home grooming essentials: T-outliners, oil, sanitation spray or solution, clipper brush, alcohol, comb, razor, and a hair moisturizer.

Sanitize, Cut & Moisturize

Once you have all the tools in tow, Mcdually says you need to sanitize your clippers and razor to prevent skin irritation and bumps.

Then, cut all the excess hair on your hairline and use a mirror and steady hand to edge the back of your neck on both sides.

Finally, wash your hair and rub a moisturizer into your locks before walking out the door.

Easy as 1-2-3

It sounds simple, but it takes quite a bit of practice to get it just right. But, rest assured that Mcdually’s tips could keep you from suffering through few bad, first attempts and a crooked hairline.
