Skin fade with about 2 inches on top, maybe ask for a low skin fade if you havent had one before. Make sure its a decent barbers as well

I think a buzzcut would be a bit too short for me but thanks for the suggestion.

WAHL do a number 10 or 12 clipper lenghs on amazon - that would leave you with a little longer on the top
if that is still too short I have seen 16 clippers on amazon

Its pretty much up to you whether you want it to just come down over your forehead or add some product to make a quiff or just have it how it naturally falls. If you want it quiffed though just add a little product (what kind of product you want will depend on the sort of hold/texture you want but thats easily googled) whilst its still damp - but not wet - from the shower. Just run your fingers through your hair with it on them, and then shape it how you want with your hands/hairbrush. Basically just copy whatever the barber does at the end of your cut.

Thinking about it though if youve never really had short hair, it might be a good idea to get a short back and sides first, rather than a fade, to see if you like the shorter hair. Then based on that, either keep the same or try a fade next time you get a trim.

Have a look here and see what suits your style/how much you want chopped off. Like it says on there though try to bring a photo if possible because it's a lot clearer for the barber that way and you have a better idea what youll get.

yes, you can give the clipper to the barber and he can cut your preferred length - its all personal preference
just a question who do you want to look good for? -yourself/wife/girlfriend/kids/parents/work mates?

For myself really but If girls find me more attractive because of it then that's a good thing.

Yeah that looks good. Ultimately, you'll look best and be most attractive when you're confident in what you've got and if this gives you the confidence in yourself then you'll be more attractive immediately, but yeah it'll look good
