- Choose your hairstyle. When you cut hair with a razor, you may not only be thinning the hair but also committing to a new hairstyle. If you are just testing the waters with cutting hair with a razor, you may want to start with just your bangs to ensure you will like the outcome before continuing with your entire head.
- Work slowly. Cutting hair with a razor can be a slow and daunting process. However, the faster you go the more of a chance you have of making a mistake and cutting too much hair.

If your hair still feels too thick in areas, single out the areas. Razor them again taking off only a little hair so that they blend with the surrounding hair.
