    My quarantine buzzcut is starting to grow out some. Probably about time to fire up the clippers...

    I've done two self-inflicted buzz cuts so far. #2 guard all over, and it's not too bad. But I had a dream the other night that I tried without the guard and it was a disaster. Actually, I think I may just do it myself even after the barber shops open back up like normal instead of an isolation ward.

    I got a haircut last week. Made the appointment online, sat in the car until they texted me, mask required. Only two people in the shop at a time. But it was worth the effort.

    Next time I do one myself I may save the clippings and send them and a bottle of glue to my older brother who has a wicked "Friar Tuck" thing going on and is very sensitive about it. Ha-Ha...we always go for the sore spot.

    I cut my own hair and felt quite inhuman with the results. Went back to quarantine until it fills in a little.

    Ever hear about a hat? Covers up a lot of sins.

    I've been getting consistent haircuts every 2 weeks using the cordless clipper. I've been doing that ever since I started to become...ahem...folliclly challenged.

    No guard is easier. You just shave it all off. Just keep running it all over your head. Rub your hands all over and if anything feels longer, do it again. Feel free to ask someone if you missed anything.

    Just got one after almost 4 months without. A haircut never felt so good! I attempted to trim it up on my own, but didn't do so well... and the barber said he could tell.

    "The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me. "

    I got one last Friday after a couple of months of me hacking on the front and my wife cutting on the back of my size 8 head.

    My 4 year old grandson likes his hair short - since he couldn't go to the barber my daughter bought a clipper -

    She did OK the first time on her son - so I had her give me a trim -

    She has now given my grandson several haircuts and has done mine 2 times.

    She tried giving her husband one - and he thought the side wasn't even - she had been using the guard / but had taken it off -

    So he takes the clipper (no guard) and BAM he took a giant chunk off the side - so he had no choice except shave it all off -
