Started out as just a trim, but a little more on one side than the other. Buzz, Buzz, You know the rest...

No more hair brush, blow dryer, hair gel, or late mornings![:D]

It'll grow back, right?[8)]

I've cut my own hair for the past 15 years, no probs.  Just can't see spending 15 to twenty bucks a pop.

I keep about one to two inches on top now but when the wife was overseas I just shaved it.  Loved it shaved.  As soon as we are done with the dog show thing I'm taking a bic to it again.

Don't worry though, it grows back pretty quick. From slick bald it only took a couple months.

You didn't get inspired by last nights episode of "Grounded For Life" didya?

Pics please?

Try taking Vitamin A.  That speeds hair growth.  Helps night vision a little also.

Used to do my own with the "Beezer Machine".  My wife said that I looked like a microphone.

Back last summer my husband wanted me to shave his head.I dont think he will ask me again.I made some bad gouges around his ears and missed up one sideburn.He went 4 months without a hair cut.Thats the longest I have ever seen his hair grow out.
When my nephew Sean was about 4 years old I shaved his head.I didn use any attachments on the clippers.Man was it short,I fell to my knees after the first pass because it was so short and thought his Mom and Dad were going to be upset.Mom wasnt upset when she seen him and told me that he had been wanting to have his head shaved bald but his dad wouldnt go for it.

It will if you wear camo in public,believe me I have my hair cut real short but not completly shaved for the reason that I can't grow hair,no really i can't it just turns into a big fluff ball on the top of my head.So after weighting the options I decided it was still better than having a afro [@:D]

Just don't make the mistake I did: The day after I had my girlfriend shave me bald I had to direct traffic for six hours the next day. Forgot the sunscreen and didn't have a hat (not part of our standard uniform).  Never had a worse sunburn in my life.  That and all the Sig Hiel jokes convinced me to leave a 1/4 inch on top from now on.

Two haircuts = one USGI mag.  Not bad...

Well I know you'll laugh but I've owned Flowbee for about 5 or 6 years.  People don't believe me when I tell them.  It really doesn't give me any worse of a haircut than I've gotten before in a barber shop.  It only takes a few minutes, I can do it when ever I have the time, and yes I've saved alot of money.  I good strong shop vac is a must though.

Just to show you how cheap I am. I give myself my own high n' tight with electric clippers every month before I have USMC Reserve duty. I ain't paying $11 at a barber. Hell! That's a box of ammo!!

Dang Tree this sounds like a "Leave it to the Beaver" episode.

Or should I call it "Leave it to the Treetop"[:D]

Way to go TT...did it make your girl cry?

Der likes to shave his head too...I hate it(it just doesn't suit him right now...doesn't suit me either[:D]).

I acutally make him go to a barber...but, I have come home from out of town to find hubby had a little clipper 'accident'......

Der has enough problem with the whole 'racism' issue...he doesn't need to look like a skinhead on top of it. heh heh heh ch

It only grows back if you have it to begin with. In my case, it doesn't! :(

My barber used to charge $8, now it's $10, but it's still a lot better than a hair stylist. I get the #3 1/2 buzz every time. Plus he owns ARs and keeps gun mags in the shop, so I don't have to bore myself with Ms. Magazine or any of that swill.

DANG! I'm gonna be rich with this idea boys! Just mail them unruly heads to me, I'll give them a deluxe coiffe and mail 'em back before you miss 'em! $5.00 even! Screw the government, no tax! $1.95 return shipping!

If your in a big hurry you can just fax 'em.

I'm a cheap bastard too.  I used to be able to cut my hair sorta well.  Then I wanted "white walls" but with at least an inch on top.  I just can't do it, I mess up the back and it keeps getting shorter and shorter, then I'm stubby bald!

Feels cool, looks stupid!

My hair grows pretty fast, except when I'm bald and "embarassed" AND want it to grow fast.

Why do you guys want a picture so bad??[:)]
My digital camera doesn't have the cord handy to hook to the computer, and I'm saving a little more money to buy a new one with some gift cards from Best Buy(I've got $600 in gift cards, and the camera I want is $699.00). I've got some older pics here that show about how my hair looks now. It was just longer this morning.

It's not quite this short:
It's about this length again:

...Sorry about the dumb poses...[;
