Anyone else cut their own hair? I got fed up with waiting to get my hair cut and tried it myself with a set of clippers. It looks pretty good. I get better at cutting it each time I cut it. I haven't gotten my hair cut in a hair cutting establishment in over 2 years.

I only let Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner cut my hair.

Razor blade that bad boy every 3-4 days. I save money on haircuts AND shampoo [:D]

Do I cut my own hair? Absolutely NOT! I used to go to those "drop in no appointment required" places filled with just licensed beautician girls. They absolutely butchered my hair - and as a fool I kept going back for over five years because I was cheap (Stupid - bang head repeatedly)... I've tried barbers, but in this town they just want to shave you - no style at all. I finally found a beautician at a womens hair beautique place that could give me a professional styled haircut. I have a professional job and want to look good. Yeah - it's pricey, I pay $25 plus tip (OK in this small town and that is pricey - in a large town that would be the tip). I cut my own hair as a kid - but as an adult, NEVER!

Since I was 13. Wouldn't have it any other way.

I have been for a few years now. I expect I'll keep doing it myself. DrMark

yes, i do
Link Posted: 12/12/2003 4:54:08 PM EDT
gf usually cuts it, sometimes i just do a #1 guard all over though if i'm in a hurry
Link Posted: 12/12/2003 4:59:05 PM EDT
Yeah, but does anybody do it with a Ka-Bar? [;D]
Link Posted: 12/12/2003 4:59:53 PM EDT
Yup, the old "twelve strokes of death", those old clippers have paid for themselves a hundredfold. The days of forty dollar haircuts are long gone. Along with most of my hair. I really don't miss the ornamental hair days... ==Bob

After the haircut my wife gave to my son when he was six, I would never trust her to cut my hair. My trusty Wahl has served me well. A #1 in the summer and a #3 in the winter. BTW, my son does not trust me for this very reason.

Yes, no guard on the clippers once a week.

Wahl gets the job done for me

Yea I do! I put the on the 10mm guard and mow around my solar panel for a sex machine (bald on top). While bent over the trash can. 10mm because I love the caliber, 10mm auto. Danny

Well you know the saying ------ practice makes perfect.

Yes I do the Ol 3 and a 1

I buzz my head with the smallest attachment or no attachment at all. I too have a professional job but my hair is starting to thin and paying money for a haircut is a waste of money to me.

One Wahl has saved me about $500 in hair cuts. I either do it myself in the mirror with a handheld mirror or my woman does it. I will use longer guards sometimes (not always just shaving it) and I can make it look like (or at least I think it looks like) a barber cut it.
Link Posted: 12/12/2003 7:20:58 PM EDT
Wahl and the #2 for me. Stylist? Don't need no steenkin' stylist.
Link Posted: 12/12/2003 7:26:06 PM EDT
#1 all over every couple weeks.
Link Posted: 12/12/2003 11:17:19 PM EDT
no way, it would look terrible if I tried to cut my own hair. I go to the old fashioned barber shop about once a month and get a "gentleman's cut". $9.00 - $10.00 I got a haircut today [8D]

I cut mine with a #1 guard. Very easy. Rob

Cut daily with a Mach 3 razor.

I've been thinking of trying one of those. I remember the infomercials that they used to run. I checked ebay for one and there a lots of them, but they are all a little too pricey for me. Who has used one and how well do they work?
Link Posted: 12/13/2003 3:13:25 AM EDT
yessir, the military "high n tight" is the easiest and most economical method. No guard around the sides, No. 2 Wahl on the top. Takes 10minutes tops.
Link Posted: 12/13/2003 3:17:03 AM EDT
#2 on top, #1 on the side... Is there any other way?
Link Posted: 12/13/2003 5:54:55 AM EDT
Glad to hear I am not the only one. I had originally bought the clippers and tried to talk my wife into cutting my hair. She looked at me as if I was insane. I was determined so I tried it myself. I do a #1 adjusted to be between a #1 and #2 on back and sides then gradually work through the guards ending with a #6 on the very top then trim up the bangs with scissors.

Same here, it's been well over 2 years... but then again, my hair is so long now I just pull it around in front and trim the ends myself[;)]

Sure do, been cutting my own hair for about 6 years now. Since I ware it "high and tight" it's fairly eash to cut. First I go over the entire head with the 3/8" attachment then hit the sides and back with the 1/8" then use the bare trimmer for the last step with the sides and part of the back. Takes me about 20 miniutes but I don't have to pay anyone so to me it's worth it. Plus I can cut it anytime I want, don't have to drive in and wait for someone else. In the summer, when it gets so God awfuly hot, I'll normall just shave my head, it's cooler that way. P.S. I like my hair trimmers just like I like my Shotguns------Remington.LOL.
