A few weeks ago, Alpha posted a quick and easy at home hair cut tutorial. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM AaronMarino Pete & Pedro Tiege Hanley ENEMY is going over common home hair cut mistakes, styling tips to make your home haircut look better, and easy hair styles that look great on anyone.
Common Men’s Self Haircut Mistakes
1. Waiting too long to trim — you need to be able to follow your good hair cut to know where to go. Alpha recommends every two weeks to trim your hair (use the quarter inch guard).

2. Too aggressive with the clippers — less is more. You can always go shorter. When using clippers, start with the longest attachment. Go lower progressively. It’s all about understanding and utilizing the lengths of the guards. Slow down and don’t rush it.

3. Going too high with your clippers — you have 3 zones (crown, neck, transition). Don’t go too high into the transition zone. It’s all about feathering (up and out).

4. Hard transition line — you want a seamless fade / taper. No matter how much you practice, you will never be as good as your barber / stylist. Alpha describes how to do it optimally with the micro-adjustments and the lever.

5. Edge up your neckline — sometimes it’s too boxy or high. Follow the natural growth pattern of your hair.

Hair Styling PRO Tip
1. SALT spray prestyler — spray then let your hair dry

2. Apply Putty (Alpha’s choice) and emulsify

Simple & EZ Hairstyle
The classic side part is simple, easy, and starts with finding where your part starts. Alpha demonstrates. You can also push it back a bit for a different variety. Use SALT for a bit more texture and volume. You can also opt for piece-y separation. This style will hide a self hair cut irregularity.

    Alpha might need to get your eye freckle checked out! Just to make sure it isn’t a melanoma. 👌

    Probability of screwing it up ~e^(t2-t1), got it

  4. Craig on April 1, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    smoke a fucking joint and chill the fuck out

  5. Some Dude on April 1, 2021 at 11:08 pm

  6. Manfred Thurman on April 1, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Mistakes are ok

  7. Keith Gallagher on April 1, 2021 at 11:09 pm

  10. Imran Khan on April 1, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    so I have nothing to lose

  11. tommy k on April 1, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I don’t even know you….why are you screaming at me?

  12. Harsh Kumar on April 1, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    i haven’t cut my hair from 6 months…

  13. The blood moon Warrior on April 1, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    I don’t think YouTube likes you because I searched for people making a fool of them self so yes

  14. June Bennett on April 1, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    This video would be perfect except for the stupid "illuminati" hand signs been thrown constantly. I think it’s laughable that so many bozos think that BS is going to bring them fame and fortune. Lucifer is a notorious liar and the only lasting thing that these people are going to get is eternal separation, weeping and gnashing of their teeth. I’m sure they believe that isn’t the case, but I assure you, unless you turn away from such things and toward the Savior of mankind, this will be the future. Think about it before it’s too late.

  15. Czar Inc. on April 1, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    This guys energy is contagious

  16. John Doe on April 1, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    Fast forwarded to the 1:30 mark and watched 10 seconds….WOW….had to turn this guy off. Just TOO intense. It’s just hair cutting dude…no need to act like you’ve had 20 cups of coffee and a line of blow.

  18. PilotVBall on April 1, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    "Sea salt spray"? LMAO Just mix salt and water and spray. BTW salt destroys your hair.

  19. Givemethejob on April 1, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    You say slow down, that would be a good idea for your presentation.

  20. Oh no u didn't on April 1, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Why you gotta shout at me! Ffs!

  21. AlienumCorpus on April 1, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Mistake 1: don’t shout as if everyone who watches this is deaf. You sound like someone who has waaaay too much sugar.

  22. Douglas White on April 1, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Just cut a 1 inch wide 6 inch long chunk of hair right down to the skin!! This guy’s shouting and examples hasn’t helped one bit, Moving off to a calmer tutorial.

  23. Sujesh Pandey on April 1, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    How to treat white beard naturally? How to reverse it naturally to black n thick.

  24. kickbaktube on April 1, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    I use a web cam on a Tripod to do the back of my hair when sitting in front of my PC.
    Kay Thnx Bai

  25. John’s Film Studio on April 1, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    To be honest I’ve never been to a Barbar, I always cut my hair by myself and I’ve never had any problems.
    I’m telling you start cutting your hair by yourself, it’s not that hard “learn, make and repeat” what this guy says and other YouTubers.

  26. adminmovie on April 1, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Why are you screaming man ?

  27. SG on April 1, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Wow been watching this channelf or 10 years …same hairstyle..

  28. Sean Stevens on April 1, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    I was just grabbing my clippers before deciding….ehh….one more video first lucky I’ve only been 4 weeks since seeing the stylist but tired of paying so just bought Walh set

  29. Mark Willie on April 1, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    I’m not an proponent for prescription drug use, but dude, please take a Valium before making your videos.

  30. P J on April 1, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Hi….you are too loud and too brash….

  31. Murcatus Murphy on April 1, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Please stop yelling at me. 🙁

  32. Georgi Anastasov on April 1, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    Why the shouting!?

  33. WuffieGG on April 1, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    So, you spoke about how to cut the "neck" section and the "band" mid section, but how would you recommend cutting the "top" section? It’s pretty rounded up there and I’d love starting over from my previous horrible attempts. Your guides have always been of good help to me.

  34. Miguel Angel Martinez on April 1, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    After 30 years of cutting my hair im doing several mistakes! Thanks for the video!😊👍

  35. Tiramisu Latte on April 1, 2021 at 11:39 pm

  36. Chinthaka Amarasinghe on April 1, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Thanks 👍 it is really helpful ☺️

  37. nala simba on April 1, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Why are you yelling in my face! Calm down.

  38. TchoubiBoumbo on April 1, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Stop drugs

  39. Richard Perales on April 1, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Quit yelling at me

  40. smaakmakend on April 1, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    why are u screaming at me :F

  41. Jonathan Mimnagh on April 1, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    I’m bald and normally go with a short haircut, 2 at the back & sides, 4 for what is left on top. I’ve had a 2 all over but that was a bit brutal, any tips for me? Would a 3 all over be a good compromise for me?

  42. AshkerTalks on April 1, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    ohh lord,why i done this??

  43. Mr. Hemiroids on April 1, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Man I ain’t been to the barber in one year since the scam. I don’t wear a mask so it’s difficult to find a place to get your haircut.

  44. Bogdan Bordeianu on April 1, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    chill! drink the F less coffee.

  45. John Rogerson on April 1, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Why are you yelling??

  46. Vladimir Vladimirovici on April 1, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    I know this guy for 6 or 7 years but he is getting louder and louder and his excessive gestures …pff

  47. nala simba on April 1, 2021 at 11:55 pm
