I did, three mirrors, didn't turn out that badly... note I didn't say good. Don't expect pictures...
I went to barbers all my life. Then, in the spring of 2019, my oldest daughter cut my hair a couple of times, and did a pretty good job. When she went back to college in the fall, her mother took over. It's pretty great being able to get your hair cut at home. Although I have to confess, I've never tried cutting it myself!
At this point, I'm tickled that I have any hair.
I don't have much but the length was bugging me. I looked like Doc Brown in Back-to-the-Future first thing in the morning.
Me, too, but only on one side- I sleep with the right side of my face on the pillow, and hardly ever move. Flat on one side, Doc Brown on the other!
You're not alone. I'm so bad at cutting hair, though, that my only real choice is to give myself a buzz cut.
I used to do that, clippers with 1/8" comb, zip zap. Clean, dry right out of the shower, no muss no fuss. BUT - my wife (who has to look at it) says I look like a convict and she objected, so no buzz.
Haircut, shoot I'm retired now.
Having a hard time remembering where my shaver is. I do use it on occasion, but letting the "freak flag" fly, at least what's still there.
I haven't had a haircut like that since basic training. I won't let it grow too long coz it looks terrible. I could never be a hippie. I've had the moustache since '69, as soon as I got out of USAF tech school. Wife's only seen a picture of me without one.
It's not so much that I decided to grow a beard, it's just that I gave up the hassle of daily shaving. Retirement has its percs.
I had a sunroof as well and the rest of it was long (down just past my shoulders). I have hated it and was wearing head scarves and hats in public, I recently thought why am i doing this? I took the drastic option of shaving it all off, and am now ready to join the Baldies from The Wanderers!
Great flick! Haven't seen that one in ages.
Yeah, mine is always the #2 clippers, a little shorter on top. My wife says it makes me look mean, though. But my hair is so thin that any attempt to style it fails.
I've also been letting my beard grow. I was going to shave it off when everything opened up again, but our shelter in place has just been extended indefinitely, so...where's my razor?
My beard, if I didn't shave, would be all white and the hair is so coarse that it would stick out like porcupine quills!
You've described my beard to a T. I'm kind of fond of it. Or I hate shaving.
regret the 6" had cut off 3 years ago,,finally back to a respectable length past the middle of my back
I have been cutting my own hair for about 5 years now. It takes about an hour once a month. Based on my experience the only difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is one week.
I used to cut my hair by pulling my ponytail over my shoulder and hacking at it with scissors. However, I actually really enjoy having someone else brush my hair - its like a brain massage - and I'm a grown up now so if get it professionally cut every 2 to 5 years.
I went to the same barber shop for about 45 years . Then Mario and Lou retired about 5 years ago and I really haven't been that happy with the guy I use now . But in all honesty , I can't wait for him to open .
For the past 10 years, i've used my own Wahl Clipper, it just seems more reasonable to buzz whats left on the roof, i'm usually wearing a hat anyway.
I also use a DE safety razor to wet shave.
Something i recomend all men try.
At least once a year or if a formal eveing is on the calender, i let it grow and get my head shaved and straight razored by a Barber, again another thing evey man should treat himself to.
Getting back to my college days in the early 80s.
