I guess I have what you'd call a typical, side-part haircut, tapered on the sides and back with a few inches left on top. I've had them use only scissors before, but this time she used clippers on the sides and back, and scissors on the top. For those of you with similar cuts, what clipper guard # do you usually go with? She used a #6 around the sides and back, and then scissor cut the top, and it seems to be pretty reasonable. Just curious.
