I've heard people describe these two methods:
1) Clamp the string down, then trim as close as you can with a "flush cut pliers" or similar.
2) Pull the string through the nut slot, pulling it tight, and cut it as flush as you can. The string will have likely pulled back out. Then insert the string again through the headpiece from behind the nut, and clamp the string down. It'll likely have pulled back ever so slightly. Supposedly. I've never done this method, but I've read it described a few times.

1. Insert string
2. Tighten head screws
3. Cut excess string
4. Loosen head screws slightly and use tuners to pull strings in until flush
5. Tighten the head screws and tune up
That’s how I do it on my Vader basses and I would assume it applies to guitars as well, maybe?
The only time I have string sticking out is if I screw up, which I have before...
