If you've been paying attention, you know barbering and men's style is your ticket to more tickets.

A man who knows all about that area of expertise? Tone McGill, Andis educator and owner of Ultimate Barber Lounge in Charlotte, N.C.

Here are McGill's top five expert tips for clipper cutting (shear-style cutting with clippers): 

  1. Maintenance. Use oil on tools to prevent overuse.
  2. Choose wisely. The right tool will increase your speed, so make the right choice.
  3. Get wet. Dampen the hair to prevent splinters.
  4. Take time. Spend spare moments polishing your tools to keep them in good shape.
  5. Point cut. Use mechanical shears to point cut on straight hair.
