Below, you will find the haircut models related to the size and type of hair clipper products used by different hair clipper brands.

Haircut No. 0 is a shorter, buzzing hairstyle because it does not require a guide device to be connected to the hair cutting clippers. Zero is basically a shaved head or faded bald head.

Haircut No. 1 leaves 1/8 inch of hair on the head. Only when it is longer than zero, the #1 guard is used for faded sides or very short hum. If you use this clipper guide size on your head, please note that your scalp will show up.

Haircut No. 2 is one of the popular hair clippers sizes because it is often used for faded sides and buzz cuts. The hair length is slightly longer than the number 1 which is 1/4 inch in length. The number 2 is still very short but will not expose your scalp. If you are balding or have thin hair, then the #2 length is a safe choice.

No. 3 haircut is another very popular trimmer size. The #3 guard allows 3/8 inch hair and is used by hairdressers to cut a higher number of fading. Usually, men will ask for 3 times less fading or buzzing because it is short and low maintenance, but there is no scalp displayed. 3 hairstyles are also suitable for thick and thin hair.

Hairstyle No. 4 is used to obtain 1/2 inch hair. #4 size of the clipper does not produce a very short buzzing sound and starts to cut the hair of head border. As the middle length of most scissors, Guard 4 provides reasonable length hair to maintain a more conservative hairstyle and style.

At 5/8 inches, haircut #5 leaves longer hair, which can be styled and brushed. If you want to shrink the sides of a longer hairstyle without too much contrast, then this is a good setting. Use the #5 hair trimmer size to get more classic effects.

Hairstyle #6 is suitable for styles that require 3/4-inch hair length. Like size of #5, #6 is usually used for tapered sides. At this length and above, a #6 hair clipper size no longer lets you be cut buzzing hairstyle.

You can use the No. 7 haircut to trim hair. In the case of 7/8 inches, #7 hair guard size is more suitable for buzzing hair on the top of the head without the hassle of using scissors. Remember to use a smaller clipper size and let you clean on the head sides.
