I have been keeping my hair tapered short on the back and sides with a clean part on the left side which I slick back with Pomade for a very sharp clean cut. My barber is suggesting I have him razor my part in so thats its sharp and always formed in the same place precisely. Has anyone done this and if so, how often do you have to do it to keep it sharp?

I used to have this done but have since stopped. It looks a bit unnatural and it can grow in poorly if not done right or maintained right. 

If you do get it razored in you'll have to do some clean up work about halfway between cuts to keep it looking good. By that I mean that you'll have to take some hair scissors or a razor yourself and basically cut/trace what your barber did. 

I'd stick with the natural parting mate...seems a bit excessive to be messing about with razoring it in.

I would personally stay away from that.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  I wear my hair in the same style and I've never had this done. 

I wear mine parted but I've never heard of that. sound like its cutting it a little close. pardon the pun

It's an extremely clean look, and the wider line of the part is very obvious.  It's all the rage for those wearing styles like the military pompadour.

 

I've not done it, and would have no need of it as my hair has a perfectly straight natural part when it's allowed to grow to some length.

 

My concern would be the awkward growing-in stage.  My hair, after a week, grows nearly 1/4"  Which means that part would have to be carved in every few days.  Very high maintenance.

 

BTW, when he said razored in, did he mean with a razor, or did he intend to use T-Edgers?

Never heard of it but if you have it done, take and post a picture. We want to see how it looks.

Since y'all were unfamiliar with the style, I thought I'd post a photo to show the look.

Your English is getting better Max! Keep it up!
