Step 5 – Adjust your clippers to a lever length of 0 and then flick the clippers off the line that you had created right at the bottom of your sideburns. Lower down the lever slightly and flick off at the point when the lever moves between the 0 and 0.5 mark.
Step 6 – Your fading process has begun. To create the fade effect, you will need to use your detailers to work along the line of your beard growth which should be ½ cm from the downwards line.
