Use a hair tie to secure the hair in one place as you do the cutting for the wolf cut.

  • Snip off some length using cutting scissors

While trimming the hair, you are expected to pull it forward and keep it in that particular situation in the meantime.

While doing the trimming, you ought to be exceptionally cautious in light of the fact that the principal piece of hair you trim decides the hair length you will keep.

In the cases where you want to leave relatively long hair, you should only cut around 5 cm of hair off from the end, and if you want to leave short hair, you can trim up to 10cm off the end.

When you put the hair up, the first cut will determine how long the hair left is from the scalp.

  • Let the hair down and part it from the middle

Since you have created the base layer of the wolf cut from the first cut, you can now let all the hair down and part it carefully from the middle. 

When the hair is out of the braid, you will understand that the hair at the back is longer while the one close to the ears is the briefest.

At this stage, if you realize that the hair is not short enough to your liking, you can put it back into a ponytail and cut it until you reach the desired length. 

As you keep trimming the hair, you ought to be extremely cautious since you generally have an opportunity to do however much trimming that you need, yet you can’t stick back what you have already cut.
