How to describe haircut? (terminology etc.)

So I kind of have an idea of the haircut I want but I have no idea how to actually verbalize it so the hairdresser would know what to do.

It's not complicated or anything, just a short men's haircut, but I can't find any pictures that are what I want and I'm not sure what to say. Also I have a lot of anxiety in social situations so it would be best if I just know what to say beforehand and don't have to explain a lot.

I don't know what could help me... Is there a website where you can find descriptions of haircuts or something? Only thing else I could do would be find a few different pics with the features I want and ask someone to describe them all / what a haircut would look like with all those features, or pull my hair back to the length I want it and take various pictures and ask someone to describe it lol

Your best bet is to find a picture of the haircut you want and take it in. Look at magazines, catalogs, etc...
