What you will need:

How to Do a Peaked Haircut Step-by-Step
Select attachment guard #2 (1/4") or #3 (3/8") for your Wahl clipper. Begin in front of the ear, blending the back of the neck and under the rim of the head (sections 1 and 2) as you move around the head. When working over the ears, bend them down and out of the way so you can easily cut the hair.
Continúe cortando el cabello en la parte trasera del cuello. Cut up to the rim of the head (section 3) but do not cut the Faux Hawk section on top of the head.
Cut the left and right sides of the top of the head (section 4) to desired length, leaving the center long for now.
Trim the hair in the center of the top of the head (section 4) using your clipper and attachment guards #2 (1/4") or #3 (3/8"). Then push the hair up and away from the head.

Tips for the Perfect Self Haircut
Using the Upward Rocking Motion is sometimes the best way to blend different lengths of hair in different sections of the head to achieve a finished look. To do this, carefully pull the clipper away from the scalp in fluid strokes as you cut upward to blend the hair from one length to the next.
With fine hair, you will need to do more blending because it tends to show different cut lengths more easily.
